RCV213V & other bikes at TAS 2013.

I was at the Tokyo Auto Salon for the press morning and saw a few interesting bikes amongst the cars, not least Pedrosa's display bike - so I took some pics. Enjoy!

Thought I'd shot a couple of Lorenzo's bike too, but seems I didn't.
Wasn't much time, as there were a lot of other things to shoot on Friday. But anyways, for those of you who like Honda race bikes, these were those on display.

Race Ready RC.

Thanks for posting such great shots of the bike, Stig. And especially those close ups.
I have looked online to try & contact Honda, but it's hard to find out who to contact, if one wants to import a bike directly from them, like in this case. The tentative release date is sometime late 2014 (?).
I've yet to go to the Honda dealership in Riyadh to ask them if they could provide me with a contact name or number.
Let me know if you happen to have the above information, or point me in the right direction, as I'd like to bring it to Riyadh.
Many thanks, once again.
Ride Safe & Friendly,
Regards,
Dr. Rahi.

Anybody know what that is sitting above the clutch slave? Looks like it is attached to the countershaft?




I'm always right.

If you're talking about the RCV213V, then Honda will never supply to the public.
Honda's sales are through regional dealers and they won't export from Japan.
But I know a company that can help you when the time comes.

Keeping Company.

Much appreciated, Stig. Keep me in your thoughts.
I've been waiting for this a long time. And I can assure you, Gentlemen, that it will be no Trailer Queen or Living Room Showpiece.
Take Care.
