The video shows a very skilled Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R rider that rolls on the Autobahn with 300 kmph when it is passed effortless by what seems to be an Audi RS6.

The guys from Chak Motors have released the first details of their upcoming Molot. The new motorcycle was designed with maximum safety in mind and is fitted with a comprehensive list of modern systems borrowed from the realm of cars.

The Molot is based on a stock 2013 Honda CBR 1000RR ABS, so it’s powered by a 999cc Liquid-Cooled Inline Four-Cylinder engine. Needles to say that the base model was heavily modified featuring a completely new body made of carbon fiber. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the company’s technicians used 3D printing technology for up 5 % of the parts used for the new Molot.

But what make this motorcycle truly unique are its high tech safety systems. For the starters Chak Motors ditched all the incandescent bulbs and replaced them with modern LED technology. Then, there is the Predictive Emergency Braking System (PEBS) which works together with the ABS. This system has the ability to apply automatic breaking when it detects that the motorcycle is too close from a possible obstacle thus helping you avoid a collision.

You also get blind spot monitoring, front and rear HD cameras which store information in an indestructible black box, a Departure Warning System (LDWS), and a built in gyroscope which automatically disables throttle is it detects any anomaly in vibration and control.
