Ahead of this weekend's Sepang MotoGP, Nicky Hayden rode his Honda RCV1000R through the streets of Putrajaya, the federal administrative centre of Malaysia.

The American was joined by locals star Azlan Shah, Zulfahmi Khairuddin, Hafiq Azmi and wild-card Hafiza Rofa.

"To ride the wide streets and avenues of beautiful Putrajaya has been an amazing experience!" said Drive M7 Aspar rider Hayden. "Of course, I couldn't ride at the kind of speeds I will manage at Sepang, but the turnout from the local fans was awesome.
