Don't buy this video,
This review is from: Motogp: The 210mph Bikes [DVD] (DVD)
I had very high hopes for this DVD, hoping to get a glimpse of the technical details behind GP bikes, or at least a good impression from the riders on what they were like to ride. But instead it's full of stock footage, some of which isn't even from MotoGP let alone the actual bikes concerned. It's very sloppily put together. Obviously the manufacturers don't want to give away too much, but when the team manager mentions that their bike is the only one to have pneumatic valves, it's a great opportunity to put in a little sideline about what they are and why they're beneficial. But there's none of that in this video - not even anything generic about things like suspension or weight distribution. There isn't even a comparison between bikes, or any insight into their development or race day mechanics.
The entire video is: stock footage/montages, a few trite words on how great each team is/was/will be, and a very brief description from a team manager about what a V5 looks like. Big deal.
Funnily enough, it was the extras on the DVD that I found far more interesting, but not enough to warrant the purchase price. There's a decent (but short) look into the Ducati factory that's worth a peek if you find this video in a rental shop.
Whether you're a newcomer to the sport or an old hand, you'll find very little of interest here.
