The bike ambulance service will deploy the new first responder before larger ambulance vehicles arrive at the scene.

Needless to say, the first responder bike ambulance is launched to penetrate dense traffic and attend to the needy in time. 30 Bajaj Avenger bikes are specially modified to accommodate first aid kit, medical equipments like stethoscope, IV normal saline, pulse oxymeter, mini oxygen tank, and around 53 drugs. The Bajaj Avenger bike ambulance costs roughly Rs. 2 lakhs. The bikes will be ridden by professional paramedics with training to perform tactical manoeuvres to reach the spot evading traffic.

All 30 units do not cater to Bengaluru alone, only 21 bikes are stationed at meticulously networked nodes, and other 9 units take position in 9 different cities across Karnataka, including Mangaluru (Mangalore), Mysuru (Mysore), Tumakuru, Kalaburgi, Hubballi-Dharwad, Davangere, Belagavi, Vijayapura and Shivamogga.
