yeah thanks, Herman Munster on a speedway style bike, what fun! Power to wt. ratio at it's best. Any idea what engines they're running, look like twins?

I could see how leaning wouldn't be as important with such thin tires as it wouldn't really change the contact patch much.

They run Suzuki control engines, 600cc twins. 
Some info here:

Thanks for info, I forgot about the gambling stuff, they used Triumph twins back in the good old days...makes me wonder what they did to keep them alive.

It's not about how much you lean, but how you lean... As I've recently seen from another rider - "If you're leaning and not being efficient, you're doing it wrong"
