Take a ride onboard with myself, filmed back in 2013, during the Lightweight race of the TT.
Mounted on a Kawasaki you can see me chase down Nuno Caerano early in the lap, and eventually I went on to finish in the top 30. Safe to say Caerano finished behind me.
It doesn’t look that fast sat watching the onboard lap, but it certainly felt it at the time. The little bike is fun to ride and no way as scary as the big Honda Fireblade, which I rode last year.
Top speeds on the Lightweight bike vary from 140-150mph, whereas the Superbikes are close to 200mph.
