Pedrosa was really happy with the change, especially as the bike was pretty much unchanged for some time, now: "I'm glad I was here at the Campus Repsol to present the bike with the new colors. We had a lot of time with the same design and I think it is a good time to change. This year's bike has a cool look and that may give us a plus in racing. I hope people like it."
Dani Pedrosa's young lieutenant Marquez is only 20 and some see him as the successor of Valentino Rossi. After taking the step from Moto2 to MotoGP, Marquez is living his dream: "I really wanted to live this moment. I am very glad I made the colors and take the leap this year from Moto2 to MotoGP. Seeing the bike painted in HRC Repsol colors makes me feel very satisfied and realize it's a dream come true. I'm like a kid with new shoes."
Team Repsol Honda will do some testing in Texas in March, too, after the ones scheduled for February on the Sepang circuit in Malaysia.
