For this race, there are two YouTubers shooting this video for their respective channels. One is prepared to ride the Bullet first and then they would switch to make the results more consistent and accurate. In the first round, the bikes launched at almost a similar level. However, the Bullet began to develop a short lead from the RC125, which is quite interesting. Then, for the longest time, the KTM was not able to catch hold of the retro cruiser. It is only after around 120 km/h speed, that the RC125 was able to overtake the Bullet.
