A sidecar is a one-wheeled carriage attached to the side of a bike, making the vehicle a three-wheeled vehicle. Attaching a sidecar to your motorcycle enables you to accommodate an extra pillion rider or a physically challenged person. The sidecar also helps carry excess luggage.
Adding a sidecar to your bike changes your bike's entire dynamics, and riding it safely requires a good set of skills. Here are some tips to learn how to ride bike with a sidecar in India.

So before carrying passengers, you should ride alone and brush up on your skills. Make sure that you and your co-passenger wear the proper riding gear at all times while on the road. Also, ensure you buy a comprehensive bike insurance policy that covers you, your pillion and sidecar riders from any accidents or other roadside incidents. As a rule, if you choose to ride a bike with a sidecar in India, you must inform your insurance providers about the same.
