Each episode of Twist The Throttle travels the globe to focus on a single brand, offering a behind-closed-doors look at the design, building, and testing of sport bikes.
According to TheKneeslider.com, Twist The Throttle is shot in spectacular 1080i high-definition and 5.1 digital surround sound to take viewers directly to challenging racetracks like Kawasaki’s Autopolis on the island of Kyushu and Honda’s top-secret proving grounds in California’s Mojave Desert.
For the first time ever, outside cameras were permitted on Yamaha’s private test track, Fukoroi, in Hamamatsu where two of Yamaha’s newest sports bikes were put to the test.
