Tom Sykes' Kawasaki WSB bike ridden

Kawabungaaaaahhh !!!

Yes amazing that today,the Factory WSB's are pumping out over 200bhp never mind 240bhp!!? Foggy's Ducati 996 back in the good ol' days was reaching about 155bhp,Edwards SP2 175bhp,Ducati 1098 198bhp and that was amazing. Who needs million dollar prototype Moto-gp when a road bike(albeit heavily modded) will keep up with them? 211 mph-astounding,but i wonder what the service intervals are;gotta be after every race?
