I dont think it could ride on a track. Sounded like they was just using it as a way to consistently test the bikes. Looks like one more person is out of a job.

It dosen't go anywhere. It just sits on the bike, shifts, and runs the throttle while its on a dyno. Nobody is out of a job because it takes a team to run it. But if the girl in the video wanted to tell me more about it I would listen.

The best and worst part about robots is the fact that they can be purpose-built to perform any task at hand. Oh sure, they can be built to kill, or they can built to test motorcycles without risk to our feeble (yet tasty) meat-sacks. Introducing Flossie, the Castrol-developed test rider that's threading a Fireblade between its "legs" in the shot above. The robot features a self-learning mode that enables it to get a feel (throttle response, clutch drag, gear shifting patterns, etc.) for any stationary bike upon which it's perched -- right, stationary... he's no Murata Boy. Still, as the ultimate precision rider that never tires, Flossie allows Castrol to evaluate its lubricants as effectively as possible. See it in action after the break.
