The bike is pretty much the same as the one Pedrosa and Marquez rode this season, but some key aspects have been changed, of which the most important is the valvetrain. The HRC machine as a pneumatic one, whereas the RCV1000R comes with the standard version.

Still, the 2014 RCV1000R is an impressive machine and Casey Stoner rode it on several occasions, getting extremely close to the factory-spec bikes when using CRT racing tires.

According to Asphalt & Rubber, the lease program for the Honda RCV1000R production racer drives about €1.2 mil ($1.6 mil) from each Open Class team in the first season, with an additional €500k ($667k) for the second year upgrades.

Nicky Hayden and his future Aspar team mate, Scott Redding (Honda Gresini Team) and Karel Abraham (Cardion AB Team) have been confirmed to ride this machine starting with the official post-race test at Valencia.
