    My first thought when I saw the video was that the vehicle might be minus the engine, possibly just the chassis. Maybe a much lighter 100cc bike with the Royal Enfield name grafted on it and weighing...

    You should try assistance exercises. They have worked out quite well for me. E.g. DL numbers are steadily creeping up and I don't even push the envelope on this because of a history of back problems.
