Product description

Discover the incredible full story of how today’s state-of-the-art MotoGP motorcycles have evolved since the first days of the 4-stroke machines. This fascinating DVD charts the development of the iconic machines of the premier class from 2002 right through to 2009, revealing the changes, the challenges and the increasing influence of electronics.

Find out the real story of the Ducati Desmosedici, Honda RCV, Kawasaki Ninja ZX-RR, Suzuki GSV-R and Yamaha YZR-M1, plus, take a look at the efforts of Aprilia, KR, Ilmor, Moriwaki and Harris WCM.

MotoGP Evolution of a Species journeys from the early days of the 990cc motorcycles to the advent of the 800cc machines, charting all the major developments which influenced designs, and results. Crew chiefs, team bosses and top engineers explain the evolution of their machines, the set-backs, the triumphs and how they overcame the technical challenges along the way.

We also hear from Grand Prix greats past and present as they reveal what these monsters are like to ride. Valentino Rossi, Casey Stoner, Dani Pedrosa, Colin Edwards and Nicky Hayden are among the 2009 MotoGP riders to provide an insight, while we also hear from legends like Mick Doohan, Freddie Spencer and Max Biaggi about how far MotoGP technology has come.

We’re treated to detailed technical close-ups of the motorcycles, behind-the-scenes insight from the factories and pit garages, plus classic racing clips and on-track action right up to the 2009 MotoGP season.

Bonus features include a detailed study of all the machines on the 2009 MotoGP gird courtesy of the teams’ crew chiefs, plus a glimpse of the future with a look at the new-for-2010 Moto2 class.

"Ever wondered why Valentino Rossi goes so fast? Or what makes it possible for the top racers to lean over so far? Then wonder no more, Duke Video have all the answers for you on Evolution of a Species. The DVD, which lasts 100 minutes, charts the four-stroke years, from the fearsome 990s through to the current 800cc machines, and through the engineers that work with them week in and week out gives a unique behind the scenes experience. Also included are the thoughts of legends like Mick Doohan, Freddie Spencer and Max Biaggi on how technology has changed the sport" Classic Racer
