First pic: Rossi's 800

Valentino Rossi and Loris Capirossi got a taste of their new bikes yesterday as they took to the Brno track on the 2007 800cc machines.

These pictures are the first look at Rossi’s new bike as he put in a quick test of the machine in-between laps of his current M1.

Despite the bike being an early prototype he managed to get within 2 seconds of his lap pace during Sunday’s GP.

Capirossi was also pretty pleased with the test getting within 1.7 seconds of the lap record that he set during the race.
