Honda unwrap 2015 RC213V-S roadbike

Honda have, this morning at the Milan REICMA Show, revealed a roadgoing prototype of its MotoGP bike. The RC213V-S has been put together by HRC and Honda’s road departments and also was developed with input from many legendary GP riders.

Two machines have been presented; a static bike painted with a distinctive Japanese flag to mark 100 years of the EICMA show, along with a fully functioning, running version clothed in full carbon-fibre, fittingly ridden onto the stage by 2013/14 MotoGP champion, Marc Marquez.

Details of the bike are currently scant but it would be safe to a**ume it will have a version of the V4 currently used by the Production Honda RCV1000R in MotoGP.

Whether this version will have the motor from next year’s bike, which features pneumatic valves but not a seamless-shift gearbox as they cost squillions each, is anyone’s guess.

Smart money goes on this being the new NR750 and it won’t, next year at least, see the inside of the Pata Honda World Superbike garage, as the new rules would make it impossible to race within their confines.

Tyres dilema Michelin Pilot Road 3/4 or Dunlop Roadsmart 2 or anything else?

Tyres dilema Michelin Pilot Road 3/4 or Dunlop Roadsmart 2 or anything else?

Hi Guys,

Looking for new tyres and debating between Michelin Pilot Road 3 or 4 and Dunlop Roadsmart 2. I use the bike all year round for commuting and looking for good feel and handling as well as grip in wet and cold.

Also read that Michelin pilot power 2 are more sporty but great in wet?

Both have good reviews and PR4 is a new tyre. Mind you it’s 100 euros dearer than roadsmart 2 but is it worth it?

Cheers
Paul
