Rider hits 260km/h on Penang Bridge, gets arrested after posting video

After a viral video of a fellow Penangite stating that he crossed the Penang Bridge under four minutes with a top speed of 370km/h on a 750cc sports bike, a fellow youth decided to prove him wrong by riding his Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R in just 2 minutes 20 seconds with a top speed of 260km/h.

After completing his run, the young man went and posted the video on Facebook, which went viral and caught the attention of the Royal Malaysian Police force, PDRM. Crossing the 13.5km bridge at that rate might be impressive to some, but not the authorities.

PDRM officers from Penang’s Timur Laut area investigated the video and soon enough, the rider was found and arrested for dangerous and reckless driving. If found guilty (man, we would love to see how he is going to get away with this one), he will be jailed for no more than five years AND fined between RM5,000-RM15,000.

The icing on the cake? Reliable sources have indicated that when the police caught the culprit, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R 636 was masked with a fake plate number, presumably to throw off the authorities or some other nonsense excuse. Well, that is a whole different issue this youngster has to deal with.

With an education-based background, he is always eager to learn and share about the poetic arts of motorcycling.
