As one might say - lets put a vtec in it and sell the concept to BMTC

hmm.. i guess, cornering will be slower andhe cant try F1 tricks with this one...

But yes, he can get the feel of a trailer truck on a 2 wheeler... hmmm that sound great. Tell me is this pic fake or is it real, can a bike pull all those guys. I am sure if it can, it will be going for 2nd gear most of the time to keep up with the drag weight.

And think of appying brake at the speed of even 20-25kmph. I think with the kind of momentum of trailer, Bike and driver may be crushed.

Super pic... My dad witnessed a similar thing when he had been to Gujarat (Jamnagar or someplace). They had bullets hauling trailers with atleast 15 people on it and he said that it was amazing to see that he managed to go upto almost 40-45kmph
