As nzdave said. Japanese motorcycle racing for gambling purposes. Looks like a clip from a race between 3 of the 'special' racers, vs 3 superbikes. The specials won. This is all covered by one of the 'Guy Martin in Japan' episodes. The pic may even have been taken from the video. The 'specials' have specially bent handlebars, to compensate for the lean angles they ride at, and the constant corner.
I know this, because I watched (well, it was on) that episode repeat just a few hours ago...
