MotoGP: This Is the Honda Production Racer
The bike is derived from the current MotoGP RC213V machine, but will not be sold with Repsol Honda's "seamless" shifting gearbox and will not have a pneumatic valve system. The price will be around the €1 million ($1.29 mil) mark give or take, and this bike, together with Yamaha's M1 will expand the possibilities both satellite and CRT teams can explore for the 2014 season.
Unlike the factory Honda, the production racer will be offered with Showa suspensions and Nissin brakes. No name and no specs have leaked so far, as the bike is yet under serious development. Shuhei Nakamoto assures us that the model will be ready by the end of 2013 and will meet the 2014 MotoGP regulations.
Well, it looks like there's nothing we can do but wait for Honda and Yamaha to release more goodness on the new production racers.
