Suzuki V Strom vs Yamaha R15V4 Drag Race
The YouTuber finds an empty stretch of road to conduct this drag race. However, we would like to caution our readers to not perform such stunts on your own. Now, we can safely assume that the YouTuber and his team must have taken all the necessary precautions. In the first attempt, the Suzuki zips past the Yamaha and stays ahead for a long time. Finally, the wind blast gets too strong causing the R15 to overtake the Strom after a long time. At the end of round 1, the R15 emerges victorious.

A similar trend followed in the second round as well. To maintain consistency and accuracy of the results, the riders were swapped this time around. Just like the first round, the Strom has a big acceleration advantage in the beginning. This time, the riders were racing in the direction of the wind. Having stayed ahead throughout the duration of the race, R15 still managed to overtake the Strom by the end of the race emerging as the undisputed winner. The wind-blast management of the R15 is much superior to the Suzuki which is normal for a sports bike.
