Honda’s new Production Model for MotoGP tested at the Circuit of Motegi

Written by:

Honda will unveil a whole new production model by the end of 2013, designed for the 2014 FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix MotoGP class. The new model will enable entrants to race in MotoGP at lower cost starting from next season.

Early reports estimate the price for the production racer to be around US$1.26 million, a substantial price, but still considerably less expensive than rumored $3.9 million it currently costs to lease a Honda RC213V for one season.

Honda Racing Corporation (HRC), with its test rider, ran a prototype successfully at the circuit of TWIN RING MOTEGI. The test took place from May 23rd through 24th, 2013.
