Video why you should get off your bike before filling up
Or at least pay attention to where the fuels going
knows we detest pointless health and safety rules here at Visordown, but it turns out there’s a reason petrol stations don’t like us refuelling from the seat.
It’s because, in the unlikely event of the bike bursting into flames, sitting on it is not where you will want to be – as shown in this video.
According to Indian car and bike websites Rushlane.com, which uncovered the CCTV clip, the bike caught fire when the automatic shut-off failed and the pump attendant overfilled the tank, spilling fuel on the hot engine. Although the headline on the clip says it's a KTM Duke 390, it's actually a 200, according the site.
The rider suffered burns to his right arm and thighs, and is recovering well, the site reports.
