No such thing as a death-proof car. A crazy driver can get himself killed even in an S-Class.

The tank factor is a depreciating one, Jetta A5 was so much better than the A6 and now when the A7 comes along I am sure it will be much more akin to the Octavia.

Sadly FE and cost cutting is all the rage now

Default Pulsar RS200 rim breaks under sudden braking!

The front rim of an RS200 belonging to my friend's friend broke due to (alleged)sudden braking. I am not sure if that was the sole reason but its very scary nonetheless.

Is this a one-off incident or are there similar complains of weak rims? To be honest, I find the rim design quite flimsy. They may be strong but atleast the design makes the rims look quite thin and flimsy.

There is a pic in front of a police station if am not mistaken. Handle bar is a bit bent and seems like clutch cable dislodged. Braking alone cannot be a cause of this magnitude of severity. My 2 cents. RS200 is a pretty decent in braking and with rear discs . If you notice the front disc is also a large size.

It is a police station indeed. The handle bar has been bent, however, the clutch cable isn't dislodged. The clutch cable is caused to bend because of the bent handlebar. Nothing wrong with it.

Yes exactly - Braking was not the issue but 'Breaking' was! KTM 390s had a similar issue where many owners from the early batches faced issues with the wheel rims cracking and breaking thus causing accidents.

Not just bikes, even the optional alloys offered by Mahindra on the XUV had such an issue ( even a soft recall to fix it )

The damages seen on the bike could be the aftermath of the wheel breaking under hard braking.

Nope, I don't have any info. Might have occurred near Ratlam, as a friend suggested, but not sure.
I posted here in the hope that someone might be able to shed some details.

Maybe some new owner trying to replicate the completely irresponsible TVC for the Creta. Sad sight!

Yes, sad to see in this state. Probably the fastest to reach the accidents thread. Looks like it rear-ended a truck.

How is your friend?

Any chance an object got stuck between the spokes?

Ouch. Unfortunately that looks like a bike or pedestrian hit. More likely a bike, due to the severity of the damage.

Hi Rehaan! I have asked my friend about him, but he hasn't replied yet.

The alloy design is such that, there is no possibility of something getting stuck there..

The Creta reminds me of a test drive accident of an Ecosport that turned turtle, soon after its launch. It was posted on this thread as well.
