Grand Prix + Venom

Just a similar name style to other full scale Moto GP bikes. Good question, first time anyone asked actually.

You have that bike dialed to the T, makes me want to start working on mine again. I Have every conceivable hop-up on mine, it started giving me chassis problems and never got back to it. That video inspires me, this is the best I had it running and it was before most of my hop-ups.
