This video comes from rider VEER JI on YouTube. This YouTuber conducts such events with many popular motorcycles on a regular basis. For the first round, the vlogger takes the Apache, while his friend has the Speed. On the count of three, the two bikes remain almost head-to-head for the initial few seconds. Thereafter, the Apache takes the lead. This was shocking. But the Triumph rider had to slow down on the bumps on the road.

What We Think
Numerous YouTubers employ drag races as a means to compare motorcycles, a trend that has gained immense popularity among internet users. Nevertheless, it’s important to note that drag racing can potentially harm motorcycles, as they aren’t built for prolonged high-speed straight-line racing scenarios. We strongly advise against engaging in drag racing with your personal motorcycles. As responsible bike owners, it’s crucial to prioritize the well-being of your motorcycles. While many vloggers undertake various activities for increased views and social media engagement, it’s essential not to replicate them.
