Picking up rider in a Honda CBR 650R sportsbike ‘rapido’ bike taxi in India [Video]

We have seen many viral videos on internet where people book normal Uber, Ola or any other online taxi service and they end up getting driven around in a supercar like Lamborghini Huracan or Audi R8 sort. Such things are yet to become common in our country for various reason but here we another version of the same thing. Here we have a video that shows a sports bike picking which is being used as a bike taxi picking up a rider and dropping him off to his destination. In the past we have seen similar video where a Suzuki Hayabusa was being used as a bike taxi.

The video has been uploaded by Magician ad on his youtube channel. The video was created just for fun and to see the reaction on the face of the person who had booked the ride. The video starts when the rider shows up to the location on a Honda CBR 650R to pick his passenger. At first, it looked like the person who had booked the ride was about to walk past the motorcycle looking for his ride as he was expecting a regular motorcycle.

The rider then asks him for the drop location and then for the OTP to start the ride. The pillion rider was definitely amazed when he saw the ride. The ride starts and as the passenger was probably sitting on a sportsbike for the first time and he was having a hard time finding a comfortable seating position. He even asks the rider to go slow because of this issue. The rider then guides him to put his hand on the fuel tank so that he can sit comfortably.

The passenger even says that it is the first time that something like this has happened to him and he was pretty excited too. Finally he drops him off at the location and the rider reveals that he was doing vlog of this ride and was doing a reaction video. the passenger said that he loved the bike and had seen such videos in the past online.

The bike used in the video is quite powerful. The Honda CBR 650R is a 648-cc, twin-cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel-injected engine motorcycle that is capable of generating 85.9 Bhp and 60.1 Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and has a sweet exhaust note which can heard in the video. It is a powerful motorcycle and as mentioned above the passenger was finding it hard to sit comfortably on the motorcycle because he is not used to it. that is a dangerous situation and the safety measures like a helmet and riding gear must be provided to passenger to protect him if in case anything goes wrong.
