Film Description

In this one and a half minute film from 1977 World Champion ship winning motorcycle rider Barry Sheene presents a short piece to camera on his championship winning motorbike.

He explains the bike is a 500cc Suzuki which produces somewhere in the region of 120-125 horsepower with a maximum top speed of around 185 mph. He says that it differs considerably to a road bike in that it has streamlining that helps it pearce the air and attain its maximum speed. It also has a double disc break set up which is capable of stopping the bike from around 180mph to 30mph in a matter of seconds .

He explains that the tyres they use are much the same as road tyres on the front but on the back it has no tread at all so that the rubber can reach a very high temperature in which the tyre becomes sticky and can therefore grip to the track very well. He also explains that the bike's rear suspension has no springs, instead it is controlled by air and oil.
