Impromptu street races between regular cars and bikes are common on Indian roads. Just the other day, we brought you a story about a KTM Duke 390 and a Hyundai Creta dangerously street racing on an Indian highway. Today, we have next level stuff – a crazy, dangerous street race between a BMW M3 sportscar and a Kawasaki ZX10R superbike. And the crazy race was caught on video.
As the video indicates, there’s a BMW M3 sportscar that’s dangerously weaving in between highway traffic that includes a mix of cars, trucks and two-wheelers. The BMW M3 can be seen doing high speeds, braking hard and swerving wildly. A group of superbikes are also seen on the highway and a rider on a Kawasaki ZX10R sends out a hand signal that he’s going to street race the BMW M3. This kind of signal generally indicates to other superbike riders in the group that the BMW M3 would be ‘street raced and beaten’. Soon after this indication, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R rider tries to overtake the BMW M3.
For a brief period, it seems that the M3 has the measure of the Ninja ZX10R, but only until a gap in traffic opens up. The Kawasaki Ninja ZX10R, which is a superbike that’s more comparable to a supercar like the Lamborghini Huracan and a sportscar like the BMW M3, is seen blasting past the sedan. Of course, such antics are very, very dangerous and can easily result in a fatal accident. Just the other week, a Suzuki Hayabusa rider from Gurgaon was killed after colliding against a truck at high speed. Such risks are real, and for everyone watching this video, please do not try something similar. It’s just not worth risking your life for a few moments of adrenaline rush.
Highways are meant for safe traveling, not for racing. If you want your thrills, please head to the race track, which will allow you to harness the performance of your vehicle in a much safer, controlled environment.
