Tusker PAM Private Limited, the master franchise for Dainese and AGV products in India, has inaugurated Chennai’s first official D Store. The store, which has an extensive stock of protective clothing and motorcycle safety gear from the iconic Italian brand, is located on Montieth Road in Pudupet next to Alsa Mall.
Although Dainese manufactures protective clothing for all sorts of sport requirements, ranging from winter sports to bicycling to equestrian, it is probably best known for its wide range of protective clothing for motorcyclists. The store also stocks an extensive range of AGV helmets, which is Dainese’s helmet manufacturing division.
While this is a great addition to the burgeoning motorcycle gear scene in the country, the fact that one Valentino Rossi has been proudly wearing Dainese leathers and AGV helmets for well over a decade should certainly help the D Store brand and its first store in Chennai. The first D Store of the country is located in Bangalore and the Chennai store is the country’s second such store.
