The footage, posted by India’s Forests and Wildlife Protection Society on Facebook, shows the tiger racing towards the bikers as they rode through the Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary in the Indian state of Kerala.
One of the bikers managed to film the scene, showing the tiger slowly emerging from the jungle in the distance.
The tiger then picks up speed and begins racing straight towards one of the riders.
In a split moment, the biker managed to dart his motorcycle to the side.
The beast then averts its direction and heads back into the jungle, vanishing from sight.
The bikers were Forest Department officials who were checking on tiger sightings at the wildlife park, Hindustan Times reported.
The video has since gone viral, gaining over 400,000 views with more than 7,000 shares on Facebook.
Online users expressed their shock at the incident, with some praising the biker for his quick wit.
