What We Think
Lately, YouTubers have embraced a popular trend of utilizing drag races to assess and compare the performance of different motorcycles. However, it’s crucial to recognize that relying solely on drag races for these assessments may not be the wisest approach. The concern arises from the fact that drag races can potentially inflict lasting damage on motorcycles, given that most bikes aren’t designed for sustained high-speed, straight-line runs all the time. Consequently, we strongly advise against attempting drag races with your own motorcycles. In reality, most people don’t operate their bikes in such an extreme manner due to safety concerns and the potential risk of harm to their vehicles.
