Hero Karizma vs KTM RC200 Acceleration Test
This video comes from KSC Vlogs on YouTube. The YouTuber has the two bikes. But he uploads the videos of both these bikes separately.

He accelerates it from the get-go and achieves a healthy time of 4.17 secs and 10.31 secs to reach 60 km/h and 100 km/h, respectively from a standstill.

Top Speed Test
Thereafter, the YouTuber posts the footage of the two bikes where the top speeds are tested. Interestingly, it looks like the motorcycles are being ridden at the same time.

It was able to reach this speed in 26.47 secs while the Karizma XMR was able to do it in just 26.08 secs. On the other hand, the top speed of Karizma XMR was a whopping 149 km/h. It achieved this in 41.37 secs. Hence, the performance of these bikes becomes evident in this video.

What We Think
Recently, YouTubers have embraced a trendy practice of employing drag races as a means to gauge and contrast the performance of various motorcycles. However, it’s essential to acknowledge that relying solely on drag races for these assessments may not be the most prudent choice. The reason for concern lies in the fact that drag races can potentially cause lasting harm to motorcycles, as most bikes are not engineered for continuous high-speed, straight-line racing. Consequently, we strongly discourage the attempt to conduct drag races with your own motorcycles. In reality, the majority of riders refrain from pushing their bikes to such extreme limits due to safety considerations and the potential danger of both personal injury and damage to their vehicles.
