At the Tokyo Motor Show last year, Yamaha introduced its Motobot, a humanoid robot that rides a YZF-R1. Video was released showing the Motobot riding in an open area, mostly going in a straight line, but the intention is for Motobot to ride the bike on track sometime next year and eventually beat the lap times of none other than Valentino Rossi.

Four days from now, we should know who has won the 2015 MotoGP World Championship. I say “should" since protests and ongoing legal wrangling might delay the official results.
This type of behavior is rare in bike racing, more likely in automotive competition. However the days following October 25 and the penultimate 2015 season round in Malaysia have confirmed that we live in interesting times.
