MotoGP replica revealed by Honda

Honda RC213V-S finally unveiled

Honda has revealed a new MotoGP replica at the EICMA motorbike show in Milan.

The RC213V-S is a nod to the manufacturer’s historical MotoGP success and one version comes complete with Japanese flag livery.

And MotoGP was definitely the theme behind its unveiling with Marc Marquez, reigning MotoGP world champion and Honda Repsol rider, riding the Repsol Honda version of the RC213V-S prototype on to the stage in Milan.

As well as Honda Racing Corporation (HRC) and Honda Motor, a number of ex-MotoGP riders and stars were roped in to help design and develop the RC213V-S replica.

While no specification details have been revealed about the model, it’s expected to carry an engine based on the RCV1000R unit used in MotoGP.

As such, the model won’t be cheap when it reaches UK dealerships next year.

In terms of looks, there’s no denying that the replica super bike is stunning and comes with all the racing fairings and touches you’d expect of a bike based on MotoGP.

True Adventure prototype

Honda also revealed another prototype in Milan, the True Adventure.

This time, the prototype has been inspired by Dakar rallies and comes with a wide range of off-road technologies and systems.

Further specification details are as yet unknown however expect to hear more in the new year.
