This is an interesting drag race between the Hero Karizma XMR 210 and Bajaj Pulsar 220F. These days, it has become a custom to conduct such competitions to analyse the performances of two motorcycles. YouTubers, in particular, are at the forefront of this popular practice. On this occasion, we have two comparable bikes in the sense that they have almost similar engines. However, their use cases are quite distinct. On the one hand, the Karizma is the go-to choice for those who want the maximum performance from their bikes in this segment. On the other, Pulsar caters to all those who want an affordable all-rounder. Let us see who comes out on top in this race.

Karizma vs Pulsar Drag Race
This video comes from MRD Vlogs on YouTube. It captures the YouTuber with the two bikes along with his companion. In the first round, our vlogger has the Karizma and his friend has the Pulsar. On the count of three, the riders accelerate. There was some issue with the launch of the Karizma which is why the Pulsar took the lead. However, the Karizma overtook it fairly soon and then disappeared ahead. Similarly, the Karizma trounced the Pulsar in the second round when the riders were switched. Hence, the Karizma is the unequivocal winner of this drag race.

What We Think
Many YouTubers use drag races to compare motorcycles. It has become mega-popular among the netizens. However, drag racing can damage motorcycles, which are not designed for high-speed straight-line racing scenarios for a prolonged periods of time. We recommend against drag racing on your personal motorcycles. As bike owners, you must strive to safeguard your motorcycles. A lot of vloggers perform various activities for views and social media engagement. But you must not imitate them.
