Hero Karizma XMR 210 vs Bajaj Pulsar RS200 Drag Race
This post comes from MRD Vlogs on YouTube. On this occasion, the YouTuber has these two products right next to each other. For the first round, the vlogger takes the Karizma, while his friend rides the Pulsar. On the count of three, the Karizma takes a slight lead in the beginning. Since the weight of the rider on the Pulsar is less, the Pulsar catches up to some extent. As a result, the gap between them is less. Ultimately, the Karizma wins the round. For the next round, the riders are swapped. But what doesn’t change is the result. Even though the competition was stiff, the Karizma was an unequivocal victor.

What We Think
Many YouTubers have embraced the widespread practice of using drag races to assess the capabilities of different motorcycles. However, it’s essential to recognize that relying solely on drag races for these evaluations might not be the most prudent strategy. This concern arises from the risk of drag races causing lasting harm to motorcycles, as the majority of bikes are not designed for extended high-speed, straight-line racing. Therefore, we strongly advise against participating in drag races with your personal motorcycles. In reality, most riders refrain from pushing their bikes to such extreme limits, prioritizing safety and ensuring the well-being of both themselves and their vehicles.
