All of us know that records are made to be broken, but this one certainly causes good pimples. What are we talking here?
A bunch of army men take control of a Royal Enfield Bullet CI500 and go on They all decide to go on it for a ride. But wait, it will not make news or break any records; the thing is all of these airmen went for a ride together. Mind you, they numbered 54.
Where and when did it happen?
At the Indian Air Force station, Yelahanka, Bangalore on November 28, 2010. People from close by villages thronged to witness what had been an awe inspiring display of daredevilry that subtly tells what team work is all about on the machine that had been the trusted one for making and braking of such records.
54 brave motorcycle display team members from the Indian Army Service Corps rode together on a 500cc cast – iron engined Royal Enfield Bullet.
The team is called “Tornadoes,” who train to perform the motorcycle stunts created new world record for maximum people on a motorcycle- breaking the previous record of 48 people (that was performed by another Indian Army team called Shwet Ashwa on again another Royal Enfield Bullet). The team of 54 rode on the Royal Enfield for over 1.1 km distance.
What is noteworthy here is that the cast iron engine of the Bullet had been the bone stock for the record-breaking feat and the engine hasn’t been tweaked for the feat. The iconic bike of India, Royal Enfield Bullet, adds another feather to its cap with the record and reiterates why it has such long and illustrious existence even in the most competitive market scenario.
