Honda Launches RC213V-Smotorcycle
New Delhi :The RC213V is a machine exclusively for racing that has won consecutive championships in the MotoGP class of the FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix (hereinafter called “MotoGP”) in 2013 and 2014. Honda has made changes to some of the specifications of the RC213V, and will now introduce this as the RC213V-S. It is possible to ride the RC213V-S on public roads, and Honda has started accepting order entry for this new model.

The new RC213V-S is not merely the result of a feedback of technologies created by Honda through its competition in races into a commercially available model, but rather represents a wholly new endeavour to make it possible for a machine developed for competition in MotoGP races to run on public roads. To win in the world championship races, it is necessary to enter a machine that runs the fastest in the world, but in Honda’s view, the rider needs to manoeuvre the machine well, and so Honda sees ease of use as the means necessary for winning races. In other words, Honda has a principle that the fastest machine in the world is also the machine that is the easiest to manoeuvre in the world.

The RC213V-S has been developed according to this Honda principle, making it possible for the RC213V, which has won MotoGP championships for two seasons in a row in 2013 and 2014, to run on public roads.Honda’s RC213V-S exudes innovation, comprising of all key aspects of manufacturing that set the RC213V apart as a MotoGP machine. It sports light weight and precise machining of components, is equipped with control technologies and has mass concentration and reduced friction for superior acceleration. The Honda RC213V-S will continue to remain a single-seater and will be powered by a 999cc, liquid-cooled 4-stroke engine that generates 159 PS of power at 11,000 RPM and 102 Nm of torque at 10,500 RPM and will have a fuel tank capacity of 16.3 litres.

For the RC213V-S, a machine for public roads, the regions with sales planned are Europe, the U.S., Australia and Japan. The manufacturer’s recommended prices are set at €188,000 (tax-inclusive) in Europe (Germany*1), ¥21,900,000 (tax-inclusive) in Japan, A$244,000 (tax-inclusive) in Australia, and US$184,000 in the U.S.
