I reckon we can say ‘free-revving’ applies to that one… :smiley:

Does sound sweat. The guy knows the track and rides well.
276 kph on the straight about 171mph…:w00t::w00t:

Damn good video! I’m amazed how much throttle he could put down coming out of the corners! I wonder how much of that is down to the increased traction from the long-bang engine, or down to the rider? Either way, it sounds bloody awesome and must inspire confidence!

here’s a follow up from MCN.
