RC213V-S Officially Unveiled
 Date: June 11, 2015 13:26
 Submitted by:  JMU R1
 Source: Press Release
 Credibility Rating: Not Specified


TORRANCE, Calif. (June 11, 2015) – Honda today confirmed that the revolutionary RC213V-S is to be sold as a premium 2016 model, with a limited number set to be made available to U.S. customers. Every sport bike enthusiast has dreamt of climbing aboard a MotoGP™ machine and experiencing firsthand these bikes’ exceptional engineering
and performance, but with rare exceptions, only top-echelon racers have had that opportunity—until now. With the RC213V-S, a fortunate few will have the chance to purchase what is essentially a pure MotoGP weapon, with only minimal changes for a street application.

Originally unveiled in prototype form at Italy’s EICMA show last November, the RC213V-S is based on the RC213V
that Marc Marquez rode to the last two MotoGP world championships, and is closer to a MotoGP bike than any
road-going model ever offered to the public. “Ever since the modern four-stroke era of MotoGP began, fans have
demanded a road-going version of Honda’s legendary RCV,” said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing
Communications at American Honda. “With Honda’s dominance in recent years, that call has become unrelenting,
so we’re excited to announce the RC213V-S. This motorcycle reflects the same attention to detail and precision
in assembly found in the factory machine. It’s an amazing bike that is sure to be a hit with a select group of U.S.
customers.”

In addition to confirming the prototype-derived RC213V-S, the announcement included news in the production-based
realm of motocross bikes, with the updated 2016 CRF450R and CRF250R. The CRF150R returns for 2016 as well.

Setting a new benchmark for performance in production road bikes, the groundbreaking RC213V-S was developed
with close collaboration between Honda’s Motorcycle R&D Center and HRC, and is painstakingly manufactured in an
exclusive workshop in the Kumamoto factory, using premium materials and production methods that are atypical for
production motorcycles.

Like the RC213V upon which it is based, the RC213V-S is powered by a compact 90º V4 999cc engine with titanium
connecting rods and a sand-cast aluminum crankcase. Mass on the lightweight machine is highly centralized, and
it’s race-derived features include an under-seat fuel tank and carbon-fiber-reinforced-plastic fairing. Among the
components inherited directly from the race bike are the swingarm, slipper clutch, magnesium Marchesini wheels
(17 inch size for the RC213V-S), pressurized Öhlins fork and adjustable footrests and foot controls, as well as most
of the Brembo brake components. In recent years, MotoGP has ushered in huge advances in the area of electronic
rider aids, and this is reflected in the RC213V-S, which boasts throttle-by-wire, selectable power modes, engine-brake
control and traction control, with position-detection technology developed through Honda’s ASIMO project.

• Color: HRC Tricolor, Carbon Fiber
• Price: $184,000
• Availability: Reservations for this limited-production model will be taken exclusively through the official model
