On December 21, the first-ever Honda RC213V-S was delivered to a customer in the UK. The Honda RC213V-S is the road-version of the RC213V MotoGP racer.
The RC213V-S, Hondaâ€™s fastest motorcycle, was launched on June 11 in Japan at a price of 21,900,000 yen.
The RC213V for the MotoGP consists solely of components, which meet the requirements for the rider, course, and winning races. For the RC213V-S, Honda underwent the minimum changes necessary to modify the RC213V for use on public roads.
Its 999cc liquid-cooled four-stroke DOHC 4-valve V4 engine has been detuned for street use, resulting in 70ps of maximum output, 8.8kgm of maximum torque, and 170kg of dry weight.
â€œI vowed to get my hands on it once I found out about this project. This is truly a great moment,â€ said Mr. John Brown, the first-ever owner of the RC213V-S.
