Honda unveiled its 2014 MotoGP prototype at Motorland Aragon earlier today in Spain. Both the V-Four engine and aluminum chassis are new, said the team’s technical director, Takeo Yokoyama. No specifications were provided.
If Pedrosa and premier-class rookie Marquez discover that the feel of the new bike is a significant improvement over their current factory RC213Vs, said Yokoyama, Honda “will do its best” to provide the Spaniards with new machinery before the end of this season.
Pedrosa debuted the present RC213V at Round 10 of the 2012 MotoGP World Championship, held last July at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, in Monterey, California. The current series points-leader finished third behind race-winner Casey Stoner and Yamaha’s Jorge Lorenzo.
