This video comes from Raptor N160 on YouTube. The vlogger has the two bikes side-by-side. For the first round, he takes the N150. On the count of three, the riders pull the accelerator lever. In the initial phase, the N150 briefly stays in front. However, soon afterwards, the Pulsar NS160 overtakes it and stays ahead for the rest of the competition.

What We Think
Recently, YouTubers have embraced a prevailing trend, which involves using drag races as a means to evaluate and compare the performance of various motorcycles. However, it’s important to acknowledge that relying exclusively on drag races for these evaluations may not be the most prudent approach. The reason for concern lies in the fact that drag races can potentially cause lasting harm to motorcycles since most bikes are not designed for continuous high-speed, straight-line racing. Therefore, we strongly discourage attempting drag races with your own motorcycles. In reality, the majority of riders do not push their bikes to such extreme limits due to safety considerations and the potential risk of causing harm to themselves and their vehicles.
