Ride with Honda MotoGP Racer Casey Stoner

Wednesday, February 29, 2012
Watch Repsol Honda MotoGP racer Casey Stoner pin-it at the controls of his ’12-spec Honda RC213V motorcycle at the recent Sepang test in Malaysia. Some notes for the video:
 
• Notice how immediately the transmission exchanges gears… and how he can up and downshift at lean.
• See how balanced the motorcycle is during braking and acceleration.
• The grip of the chassis with him able to apply heavy throttle loads while still at lean.
• The scream of the 1000cc V-Four engine (c’mon Honda when are you going to stuff one of these in a street bike?).

Incredible video. Curious. What is he adjusting at :35 of the video, with his left hand? Clutch tension perhaps? Some insight as to why, would be appreciated.
