Honda will unveil a whole new production model by the end of 2013, which is for the 2014 FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix MotoGP class.

The new model will enable entrants to race in MotoGP at a lower cost starting in 2014.

Honda Racing Corporation (HRC) used a prototype successfully at the circuit of Twin Ring Motegi. The test took place from May 23/24, 2013.


HRC executive vice president Shuhei Nakamoto said: “Development is currently a little behind schedule but the test results show more than what we had expected, in particular its running performance.

"We can't announce its name or the specification at this stage but we will have an opportunity to announce the details in the not too distant future.

"We will keep on developing the machine to meet the 2014 MotoGP technical and sporting regulations and will introduce it by the end of 2013.”
