In 2002, three-time world roadracing champion Kenny Roberts developed a five-cylinder bike called the KR5, to compete in the GP series, and the bike is currently on loan to the Moto Talbott museum. The bike here, No. 9, was piloted by Team Proton KR rider Nobuatsu Aoki. Roberts has loaned several bikes to the museum, including the two-stroke Telefonica MoviStar Suzuki RGV500 that Kenny Roberts Jr. used to win the 500cc world championship in 2000, and two other world championship race bikes: one of the two-stroke YZR500s that Roberts Sr. rode to his GP championships ('78-'80); and Wayne Rainey’s Yamaha YZR500 OWC1.
