Hipsters and bikes roll out for Throttle Roll

Hipsters who roll out for the fourth annual Throttle Roll Street Party in Marrickville Sydney this weekend have a chance to win a custom bike and a Segura jacket.

Throttle Roll was started in 2013 to showcase local bike builders. It also includes plenty of music from live bands and DJs, as well as food stalls and bevvies on tap.

This year’s event is sponsored by Royal Enfield whose retro range has become a must-have for hipsters.

They will show their custom Desert Storm, the new green Continental GT and Classic Squadron Blue.

Meanwhile, Yamaha, BMW, Ducati, Moto Guzzi, Royal Enfield and others wI’ll also have production and customs on display. 

Yamaha is muscling in on the action with the launch of their new retro-cool XSR700 and XSR900 production bikes as well as a custom learner-approved XSR700 inspired by the legendary DT1 and a XSR900 built to epitomise the awesome RD350 of the 1980s.

Hipsters also have the chance to win a Segura jacket simply by having their photo taken on one of the trick XSRs, then posting it on Instagram with the hashtag #throttlerollXSR. Or you can bring your own Yamaha custom bike, wheel it on to the Yamaha stage and they will take the photo for you.
