We take a break from today’s chicanery to bring you a quick distraction: Marc Marquez riding the Honda CBR1000RR-R Fireblade SP around the Catalunya track, in a 360° video format.

The video comes from Honda’s initial photo and video shoot for the unveiling of the new CBR1000RR-R, but that doesn’t make it any less cool.

For the maximum experience, watch the video on your phone. The IMU on your smartphone should pick up your movements, and change your field of view as you “look” around the bike as its on track. 

As VR headsets get better and better, it won’t be long before they start replacing TVs and other media devices. Can you imagine watching a MotoGP race like this? We think it would be a game-changer for how we watch motorcycle racing.
