Behind The Scenes: The Making Of the Ninja ZX-6R vs The Isle of Man Video
You may remember last fall’s release of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R was accompanied by a mind-blowing short video commercial of a rider screaming around the 37.33-mile Isle of Man TT course aboard the new 636 Ninja. Now, Team Green has just released a “Making Of” video about the production of that video, featuring TT star James Hillier.
This behind-the-scenes short film shows the crew capturing Hillier as he passes within millimeters of the camera. You’ll see the camera-equipped pursuit bike racing side-by-side with Hillier, as well as the aerial heli-cam. Includes interviews with the principals, including Hillier, Kawi reps, and John Kinrade, a local safety/traffic officer who admits after 30 years of watching guys like Giacomo Agostini and Joey Dunlop run the course he still felt his “heart pounding” as he watched the video being filmed.
Only 7:49 long, and worth every second.
