RE Bullet vs Ola S1 Pro
The video has been uploaded by a popular YouTuber Sonu Plaha. In this competition, he grabs his Bullet and arranges a drag race competition with an Ola S1 Pro. For this race, the S1 Pro is set to its sportiest setting, Hyper Mode. It enhances the throttle responses and enables maximum acceleration. At the beginning of the race, both two-wheelers are neck-to-neck due to the instant acceleration of the EV and the powerful engine of the Bullet. However, after a few seconds, the Bullet is able to take advantage of its powerful engine and takes an unassailable lead.

For the accuracy of the test and for accommodating the driving mannerisms of both riders, they decided to switch the bikes for the second round. However, the Ola is still kept in the Hyper Mode as it gives the riders the best chances of winning this unique race. In the second round, the competition is even stiffer with Ola competing vehemently until the very end. It was only after the 100 km/h mark, that the Bullet is undeniably able to claim victory. However, this performance indicates how quick the EVs are due to that instant initial torque.
