We’ve seen some past incidents of YouTube influencers trying to hit the magic speed limit of 300km/h. Some of them have been successful, but they are still very dangerous. Agastya Chauhan’s recent accident on the Yamuna highway shows the same. 

A horrific accident while trying to reach 300 km/h on the Yamuna highway killed Agastya on the spot. According to many reports, Agastya was a professional biker. But I think he was riding his bike and making videos for a long time. Professional bikers receive regular training from established schools such as the California Superbike School. 

The accident happened while Agastya was travelling on the Yamuna highway from Agra to Delhi. The exact location of the incident is 47 miles around the Thapal Police Station in Uttar Pradesh. While trying to reach the 300 km/h mark, the driver lost control and crashed into a highway bulkhead. 

His Kawasaki ZX-10R was blown to pieces, shattering his helmet. The driver died instantly from head injuries.

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R features an in-line 4-cylinder 998cc engine capable of producing 197.3 hp of maximum power at 13,000 rpm and 113.5 Nm of maximum torque at 11,500 rpm. For safety reasons, the bicycle is electronically limited to a maximum speed of 299 km/h. It is a track-oriented machine. 

Biker arrested in the past for attempting 300 km/h

A Bangalore biker attempted a similarly dangerous stunt during the 2020 nationwide lockdown due to the COVID pandemic. The motorcyclist posted a video of him riding a Yamaha YZF-R1 at 180mph on public roads. Posted and later caught by the police. Indeed, no official action has yet been taken for the driver’s reckless behaviour.

Speeding on public roads is always very dangerous. Even for experienced riders who have been riding superbikes for a long time, high speeds on Indian roads are unpredictable and accidents can happen quickly. For everyone’s safety, speeding should be restricted on the route.

Some might argue that even routes are not completely safe and crashes happen all the time. That may be true, but racetracks offer a much more controlled environment than public roads. increase. With no public transport or stray animals, the risk of falling on the track is much lower, and the track is designed to absorb the impact of an accident and protect riders from fatal injuries. Additionally, most routes provide critical medical attention in the first moments after an accident. It’s always better to drive fast in a controlled environment than on public roads.
