Flossie

In 2009, Castrol has made this robot named Flossie, as a precision rider than can grip clutch, shift gear and twist the throttle repeatedly. Flossie can also ‘learn’ the bike character like a new rider would when getting a new bike. Flossie is used by Castrol to test their lubricants in variety of conditions with the precise gear shift and throttle twists. Check out the video embed after the jump:
