Kawasaki Ninja ZX 10R superbike rider fined for loud exhaust [Video]

Police in India often target two-wheeler riders for reckless riding, modifications. If you are riding an expensive  superbike, then cops note your motorcycle easily and are stopped more often. Most of the time, these expensive sportsbikes are stopped for exhausts that sound very loud. Most of the superbikes have decent sounding exhaust but, people often replace them wit performance exhaust that are louder than the stock units. Here we have one such video where a Kawasaki Ninja ZX 10R rider was stopped by police officers for using a loud aftermarket exhaust. He was fined for the loud exhaust as well.

The video has been uploaded by BENZ RANDOM CUTS on their YouTube channel. When the video started, vlogger was already stopped by the cops and it looks like the bike was taken to the police station. The biker can be heard saying that Kawasaki Ninja ZX 10R is  sports bike and it is only loud when you ride the motorcycle at high speeds. The bike was stopped by a lady police officer and the vlogger said, she asked him to stop the motorcycle because she saw that it is a sports bike.

At the time, when she asked him to stop, he was not even speeding and the exhaust was not loud as well. The cops then brought the interceptor which is equipped with decibel metre. They asked vlogger start the motorcycle and leave it in idle. The vlogger has installed an aftermarket exhaust with no Db killer in it. As there was no Db killer the exhaust was sounding loud even while idling.

After that, the officers asked vlogger to rev the motorcycle to get the readings. The maximum permissible sound limit on two-wheelers is 80 decibels and the Kawasaki Ninja ZX 10R was showing 92-93 reading on the equipment. This was way above the permissible limit which meant, the vlogger was violating a rule. Vlogger then tried justifying things on his part but, it looks like cops were in no mood for that. The officers were behaving properly and said that the vlogger will have to pay fine for sound pollution. They had proper equipment which helped them point out that vlogger is at fault.

It looks like the incident happened in some small town in Madhya Pradesh because while the vlogger was waiting, some local press people had also approached to click picture of the sports bike. He mentions that there are many more motorcycles in the area that flout rules. The cops wrote a challan of Rs 1,000 for sound pollution. The officer even advised the vlogger that he can use the existing exhaust but, he’ll have to install Db killer so that the sound is under the limits.

This is not the first time something like this has happened. In several Indian states, police targets Royal Enfield riders who are using loud aftermarket exhaust. Many state police even started special drives to nab offenders. The illegal exhausts in many cases were removed from the motorcycle on the spot and were crushed under a road roller.
