"Here at MotoGB, we have had a close relationship with India and trading partners for many years," a statement said. "Our close friends, and business partners, have informed us of the terrible situation and suffering currently being felt across India."
The £4599 Himalayan will come in 'Granite Black' and is the first of a planned run of multiple raffles, with the firm currently in talks with various trading partners to secure future two-wheeled prizes. Tickets are £10 each and available until Monday, June 7, with all proceeds going to the charity.
The statement continued: "We are working together with Ekam to help raise funds to go towards medical equipment such as Oxygen tanks, PPE, medicine and food supplies for those whose livelihood has been affected by the pandemic.
"We have spoken to the founding members of Ekam, which is mostly made up of medical Doctors. Ekam works directly on the front line in India and will be working with us directly to ensure the funds are spent in areas that we feel will make the biggest difference. Our first thoughts are looking to supply much-needed beds and oxygen equipment."
