Also the rider's wearing a shoei lid and Kush leathers. Haga currently wears Arai and a-stars. Bike's numbered 26 and he's 41.No way that's Haga, you think they would let Yamaha riders test out the new dev bikes? That's gotta be one loud bike, looks nice. Honda sure can build 'em.
What's with the carbon trim in front of the front sprocket?
that much is obvious. I believe the question was what's the purpose of that specfic carbon bit.if you look closely, the whole body is carbon fiber
Perhaps part of the traction control - which i believe tracks the difference in speed between front and back wheel and adjusts accordingly.And what is all that gadgetry around the front sprocket?
Yah, a V4 race bike again. IMO, the V4 is one of the best engines ever built by Honda.
