For riders and the motorbikes, Endurance is one of the toughest race categories in the world, not just because of its length, but also because of the weight of the bikes. The YZF-R1 used is heavier than the short-distance race bikes because of its lights for riding in the dark, a bigger tank that holds more fuel and heavier bodywork for extra sturdiness.
