This insane POV vid of a rider reaching speeds in excess of 270km/hour on a Hong Kong highway will make you feel like you’re on the motorcycle. However, unlike the actual daredevil, a 21-year-old sushi chef, you won’t be arrested after your joyride. SMCP reports:
The arrest was made a day after a police manhunt was launched for one of two motorcycle racers captured on video riding on public roads at speeds as fast as 260km/h and 272km/h on two occasions – including one in which he was seen evading a police officer’s instruction to stop.
Police said arrested man, the registered owner of the 600cc Honda CBR600RR HRC, denied he was the driver shown in the clips.
The man was later released on a bail and was ordered to report back to police on June 30. New Territories South traffic unit is investigating whether he was also connected to what had been shown in the second video clip.
The first clip had attracted more than 150,000 hits by last night after Apple Daily found the video online and posted it on its website at 4am on Monday morning. It shows the rider eluding a traffic policeman who tried to stop him at the exit of the Nam Wan Tunnel in Tsing Yi. He then travels the seven kilometres from Tsing Yi to Stonecutters Island in Kwai Chung in less than two minutes.
