Every year on the Republic Day parade, the BSF (border security force) and the Indian Army take turns to perform daredevils act on the good old Royal Enfield Bullet. This year, it’s the turn of the BSF team to do the honors and it’s not just the men in uniform, but also a 27 member women team that will debut on Rajpath on January 26.
As per reports, members of this special women bikers’ squad, aged between 25-30 years, have been specially chosen by BSF trainers. These members are from various combat ranks of the force and will be performing various daredevil acts on the motorcycle.
The team is currently undergoing extensive practice sessions to make sure every single act is performed without a glitch. The location seems to be Dwarka in New Delhi. Various videos have emerged online and clearly showcase the immense talent in the team. Our big salute to these brave women.
The Royal Enfield Bullet (standard 350/500cc) seems to be the favorite pick for such acts since decades now. Credit for this goes to its rigid frame and high torque at lower engine speeds that allows it to carry forward a huge payload easily. The BSF (Border Security Force) men’s team is also practicing side by side as seen in the video below.
The biggest formation act uses 9 bikes and almost 40 men! These soldiers will also perform on the Republic Day parade, an annual event that is attended by the highest political ranks and seen by millions of Indians via LIVE telecast.
The Royal Enfield Bullet is the standard pick of the armed forces for stunt displays. The older 500cc, cast iron Bullets are still being used by various stunt teams of the armed forces. Eventually, these motorcycles are likely to be replaced by newer, unit construction engined Royal Enfields.
