Wheels and Waves is one of the fastest-growing gatherings of motorcyclists and artists. These like-minded people get together once in a year and enjoy themselves to their fullest. This year is the 8th edition of Wheels and Waves taking place in Biarritz, an elegant seaside town on southwestern France’s Basque coast, from 12th to 16th June 2019.
There are a lot of brands tied up with Wheels and Waves but it’s the Indian Motorcycle which is the official partner for the third year. It will be presenting many of the highlights of this year’s event just like it did in the past.
Following are some of the main highlights of the 2019 Wheels and Waves-

Pierre Audoin, Manager, Indian Motorcycle, France, commented about the brand’s tie-up with Wheels and Waves yet again, “We are very proud to be the main partner of the Wheels & Waves for the third year – it’s an event where we really are at home, the atmosphere is exactly the trend we’ve been following. With the release of the Indian Scout, we have reached a new and younger clientele, attentive to new trends, and the launch of the Bobber Scout in 2017 and, most recently, the FTR 1200 have only accentuated this real phenomenon. Wheels & Waves allows us to meet these customers and show another image of American motorcycles.”
Last year, Wheels and Waves was quite a success as it welcomed around 18,000 people. This time the attendance is expected to grow tremendously. The event For more information about the 8th edition of Wheels and Waves, visit its official website.
