The Japanese official team, Repsol Honda, officially presented the motorcycle that will be used by Marc Márquez and Pol Espargaró in MotoGP 2021. Honda Racing Corporation launched the RC213V motorcycle with a distinctive orange color with a white pattern.
The bike that Márquez and Espargaró will use is the same series in the 2020 season, but improvements are made in terms of aerodynamics. “Honda always hopes to do our best, that means winning a victory or a title or whatever we can win,” Repsol Honda manager Alberto Puig said at a virtual press conference on Monday, February 22, 2021.
According to Puig, in order to win the title again, his team is trying to make improvements to the Honda RC213V bike. “We understand that there are competitors who want the same, but as a starting point, our goal is to win titles and improve our bikes and become the strongest,” said Puig.
From 1995 to the present, Honda has continued to collaborate with Repsol. The lubricant manufacturer has been with Honda racing bikes of various eras and generations for 26 years.
