Amateur Spy: David Emmett's Out-of-Focus Shots From The Sepang Test, Part 1


Big changes at Ducati. Andrea Dovizioso shows off the new tank cover housing a revised electronics position.


Here's another part: the rear seat unit is wider, and features larger air scoops


New frame, new tank, new seat, new fairing, new handlebar grip position... the list goes on


Carbon fiber fairings: favorite of fans, bane of photographers


The test Honda. The 60,000 euro torque strain sensor is the key to the RCV213V's electronics magic


Black is the new ... black


Not as fast as it looks


Honda's massive air scoop. If you've never seen a photo of a whale shark feeding, this is what it looks like


Fast, by Aleix. Espargaro's Yamaha FTR


On Thursday, the NGM Forward team tested an intake based on the Yamaha shape, rather than the FTR one


99 problems, but the front wheel ain't one


Yamaha's test machine


The Avintia Open bike. A cross between a ZX10-R and a Hayate


A blunter nose, a bigger air scoop. The 2014 Desmosedici, current version


A curved radiator is another change made this year


A touch of color at the test


Yamaha's Cylon tail light


A Honda RCV1000R, unclothed. About to open the gearbox, impossible with the factory bike

GP14

Ducati made a big step forward in the details with the GP14. A very tidy bike.

What the story behind the Cylon Yamaha? F1 F-duct like trick?

Forward Fairing

Just been told by FTR that the Yamaha-shaped intake used on the Forward bikes was not a Yamaha fairing, just a similar design built by FTR. Corrected the caption now.
