How to make the motorcycle engine sound clearer ? Any suggestions?

This is the best quality recorded sound of my motorbike I could get. But it still sounds distorted, too noisy and kinda bad. Do you have any suggestions, how could I make the sound clearer, and actually nicer, which filters/effects could I use in post-production?

I’m at work now so I can’t listen but try playing around with the Graphic EQ effect.

I did look at it in Audacity and it’s NOT clipped (the most common kind of distortion).

low pass filter at 1kHz 24dB/octave to remove harshness.
Then some cubic curve distortion to add back some harmonics.
