Suzuki Raider/Belang 150 and Yamaha Sniper/135LC are the fastest underbone in asia.
If the two fastest underbone in asia will be put on a race track, Who do you think will win?
In malaysia, They have this race called Petronas Cub Prix. Its the MotoGP racing equivalent of underbone
motorcycles in asia. These race were held all over asia sponsored by Petronas Gas and Oil Corporation.
I happend to see the results of the Round 8 of the said cubprix in malaysiancubprix.com website.
Upon checking the results, i was amazed to see that the 135cc Yamaha 135LC/Sniper is much faster
to the King of underbones Suzuki Raider/Belang 150 which is 150cc bike on the race track!
