Fire Motorbike at the Kumbh Mela 2013 festival near Allahabad (India).

The Indian Fire Department at Kumbh Mela had several of those Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycles equipped with up to 4 fire extinguishers and an oxygen tank. They provide faster access to a fire, given the sometimes very crowded streets of the festival ground, where driving a fire engine might not work well.

Kumbh Mela is the largest festival on Earth, taking place once every 12 years, with more than 50 million Hindu pilgrims gathering to pray and bathe in the holy Ganges river.
