In a shocking incident, a KTM 390 Duke performs a drag race with a Hyundai Creta on a highway. Note that this doesn’t look like a planned race, as is the case with YouTubers. It seems like these two met each other on the highway randomly and started accelerating their vehicles. KTM 390 Duke is among the most popular performance bikes in the 400-cc segment. In fact, its driving dynamics are among the best in the class. Only adventure seekers opt for it. On the other hand, the Creta is the most successful mid-size SUV in our market. People buy it for its practicality, features and powertrain options. Let us take a look at the details of this latest case.

KTM 390 Duke vs Hyundai Creta Drag Race
This post comes from 07_biker_ on Instagram. It captures a unique instance. Someone from inside the Creta is making a video. He/She records the instrument cluster of the mid-size SUV. The speedometer reads around 160 km/h. Surprisingly, there is a KTM 390 Duke rider in the adjacent lane on the highway. He is riding at the same speed as well. He is not wearing a helmet and is bent to minimize wind blast. This takes place during nighttime on a highway. In essence, the motorcycle is able to match the performance of the SUV.

We come across various YouTubers these days who perform drag races to compare the performances of two bikes or cars. That might not be the best way to judge the capabilities of various cars, but it gains a lot of views on YouTube. As a result, vloggers often take two rivals from a particular segment of bikes or cars and accelerate them side-by-side on a drag strip. It gives a fair idea about the acceleration characteristics of vehicles on a straight line.

What We Think
However, we must also discuss the negative aspects of it. These stunts could be extremely dangerous, especially when not done in a planned way. For instance, this case is not pre-planned. They are racing their automobiles on a real highway. What is worse is the fact that they are doing this at night time. The visibility on the highway is naturally less. If something were to suddenly appear on the road, they would have no time to control their cars at 160 km/h. The consequences will most definitely be fatal. Therefore, we urge our readers to never perform such stunts.
