Kawasaki ZX-10R + Nurburgring + Gyrocam

By Cycle CanadaPosted on

Normally we wouldn’t post an eight-and-a-half minute onboard video of someone hot-lapping a track. Unless something really interesting occurs, (like our editor running into a bike that falls in front of him) a long single camera angle p.o.v. sequence often quickly becomes boring. But this onboard video of Bridgestone tester Tim Röthig doing a sub-eight-minute lap of the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife on a 2011 Kawasaki ZX-10R is incredibly dynamic. That’s because Röthing clearly has big balls, but moreover because the video is shot on a MotoGP-style gyrocam which keeps the frame horizontal the whole way through, giving the viewer a much better sense of the lean angles and a truly visceral overall experience. Check it out below.
