Written by Nizam Shaikh

The Bajaj Pulsar NS series is again in the record books. This time the Pulsar NS160 has broken the world record for the longest no-hands wheelie. The record is now registered in the India Book of Records and Federation of Motor Sports Club of India (FMSCI). The new record was set by Hrishikesh Mandke, a renowned road tester.

New World Record For No Hand Wheelie

Hrishikesh Mandke set the new record in presence of a senior representative from FMSCI and an adjudicator from the India Book of Records. The road tester performed the no hand wheelie setting a record of 186.8 meters and breaking the existing world record of 89 meters. According the Hrishikesh Mandke the Pulsar NS160 is light enough to manage a no hands wheelie and also has a strong frame to deliver control. The powerful engine also helps initiate and maintain the wheelie, said Mandke.
