Motorcycle stunt teams are now an accepted breed in India and a lot of young men and women are boldly challenging the limits. With stunt riding making a strong case for itself over the past few years the number of stunt teams are on the rise and it is definitely a task to choose who is best. One team that is making all the right noises from down south are the guys that call themselves Team RPM. They have been chosen as the featured stunt team for December 2013. A quick word with them.
