Furthermore, the rider was also provided with all the necessary safety equipment and gear. The Bajaj Pulsar NS200 motorcycle used to set the record was in stock condition. The only difference being the removal of the rear mudguard and the number plates, to avoid scrapping the tarmac while attempting the stunt.

Commenting on successfully achieving the record, Hrushikesh Mandke stated,

"I learnt to stunt on the first-generation Bajaj Pulsar, and I'm delighted to wheelie into the record books with the Pulsar NS 200. I have always trusted the Pulsar to deliver the performance and safety to enable extraordinary motorcycle stunts and it is fantastic that Indian stunt riders are now gunning for the record books, with made-in-India motorcycles."
