When motorcyle racing teams will get tired of prima donna racers, riders who want pay increases and complain about this and that, Flossie could well become the answer in a not to distant future.

Castrol, the makers of synthetic oil have come up with a robot motorcycle tester that has a built in capacity to learn to ride any type of bike on a dynamometer.

Flossie can withstand any environmental condition, heat, cold and deafening noise.

Shades of A.I.! Could this mean that Vittoriano Guareschi will soon be out of his test riding job in Ducati Corse?

See the cool video after the jump.
