Victory Motorcycle Used To Test Myth On Tonight's Episode Of Mythbusters

Victory Kingpin / Motorvation rig used to test motorcycle myth on Discovery Channel's MythBusters

When the team at MythBusters needed a motorcycle and sidecar to test another myth, they called on Victory Motorcycles for the use of a 2011 Kingpin. The motorcycle was mated to a custom Motorvation Engineering Spyder sidecar creating a beautiful and powerful rig ideal for testing a brand new myth: that a bug strike could fatally injure a motorcyclist.

Without revealing any results, we can tell you that the rig came out of the test unscathed, and the MythBusters team had a great time riding the Victory at high speeds on a closed course. For a preview of tonight's episode, follow the link below.
