The excitement among bike lovers in India has reached its peak with the Gulf Top Fuel Drag Racing Bike, deemed as the fastest moving vehicle on two-wheels in the world, coming to Mumbai for thrilling lovers of motor sports.

The bike is even faster than the cars on the Formula I circuit and can outpace even an F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jet. Amazing technology goes into the design of this 6m long bike, which is a creation of PUMA Engineering. The bike uses a highly charged nitro methane fuel engine. Its maker has the reputation of producing the most power packed engines of the world aided by the most advanced engine oil Gulf Pride 4T Plus 20W40.

With the fan following for motor sports increasing in India, it is being expected that this sporting event will soon enjoy a mass following.

Chawla adds, “Ian King is the Valentino Rossi of Drag Bike Racing, he is a legend being the most successful drag racer in the world.
