There is no doubt with this kind of riding they did have constant tech support on the ground etc.
But even if they used 4 bikes - ones in at least 90% of shots where you can make it out are same two by looks of it. Perhaps they messed up 2 first, then used 2 spare to make clean shots. I wonder how many riders they used :)

For me it was more about bikes reaction to that kind of terrain and speeds. Kinda surprisingly composed. I guess many other bikes would look same good in similar video.
One thing they failed to do - to properly promote their gear...despite that was objective
They got my attention. I've been looking for some good waterproof gear, as it looks like I'll be commuting all winter via motorsickle. About 15 minutes in I paused the movie and googled Icon Raiden.
