360 camera strapped to WorldSBK champion Jonathan Rea’s 1000cc superbike

An Insta360 YouTube video has been released showcasing footage from two of its ONE R 360 cameras strapped to the Kawasaki ZX-10RR of none other than Jonathan Rea, current world superbike champion, and WorldSBK’s most successful rider ever

Filmmaker Manel Cabot used an extension rod to mount the first Insta360 ONE R on the rear of the bike. The results are a third-person perspective of rider and machine speeding round the MotorLand Aragon circuit in Spain, not unlike the camera angle from a motorbike racing videogame.

Back in September we reported on a similar instance when Bennetts British Superbike rider and outright Isle of Man TT lap record holder Peter Hickman had an Insta360 ONE R strapped to the faring of his BMW S1000RR at Snetterton Circuit in the UK. 

The Insta360 ONE R with Dual-Lens 360 is available in a variety of kits, including the Twin Edition Motorcycle Kit, so you can record footage of your own two-wheel road trips. The tiny action camera measures 72mm x 48mm x 43mm and weighs just 130.5g.
