Default A proper off-road 'Test' for the Safari - see video!

These guys really know how to test the Indian truck offroad. And they know a thing or two about presenting it!

Take a look:



There are some more crazy videos out there, but this one is the best made/composed of the lot.

It is an easy trail on the whole. The only time it comes across a real hillock, the Safari stops and then the video jumps to another scene. Video composition and presentation is impressive though.

To be very frank, Steer has taken his truck into more worst conditions!
The video is not properly shot. The bad scenarios are not taken well and the music is too loud to my liking. 3ltr DICOR should've sounded better in the background.

Steer! next time, I will shoot your truck!

Nice video! Noticed the spare wheel cover to have rotated out of its original position towards the end of the video, and the test as well. Must have been quite an ordeal for the car

They have gone over and over on the same slope. Check out the elapsed time 3:07 and the 3:18.

But as you have said in an earlier thread, the challenge of off-road photography is that, it might not convey the difficulty. I am sure this would have been a piece of cake for the CJ, but thats a different debate.

This is actually a very easy trail, and they have change the scene any time a serious off road obstacle came through.
This video is pretty tame compared to the other Italian Safari videos
