The YouTuber uploaded this video, but we urge all of our readers not to attempt such stunts on the roads. This could have fatal consequences. Getting back to racing, the first attempt surprises everyone with the Raider taking a victory over the FZ16 with a marginal gap. For the second attempt, the bikers decide to exchange the bikes. This is a great way to ensure accurate and repeatable results. It will compensate for the inadequacy of the weight and the personalized manners of driving. However, on the second attempt as well, the Raider remains in the lead for most of the race. The YouTuber mentions that the FZ16 isn’t as stable at high speeds, which is why you don’t ride it at high speeds for long periods of time.

The main reason the Raider wins the race is its weight advantage. For a motorcycle in the 125 cc segment, Raider boasts some impressive horsepower figures. In the case of the FZ16, the horsepower figures for a motorcycle in the 150cc segment are not that good. It’s pretty average. However, the heavy bodywork and wider tires mean the bike’s performance takes a hit. Also, with the upgrade to BS6, it lost power to control emissions. All of these factors combine to make the TVS Raider the winner of this race against the Yamaha FZ16.
