A modified Royal Enfield Classic 500 carried 58 men onboard and the mesmerising stunt was performed on a 1,200-meter run

A modified Royal Enfield Classic 500 was used to make a new world record when 58 people boarded the motorcycle and it ran a stretch of 1,200 meter. The stunt was performed by Indian Army Service Corps (ASC) at the Air Force Station Yelahanka in Karanata. It was performed under the lead of Major Bunny Sharma and the bike was under control of Subedar Rampal Yadav.
