Honda MotoGP-derived RC213V-S – Honda leads the MotoGP-derived RC213V-S for the famous Isle of Man TT. The motorcycle will ride in the Pokerstars senior race, with Bruce Anstey. The Valvoline Racing Motorcycles by Padgett will have the honor of bringing race the RC213V-S. The goal is to transform the RC213V-S in a motorcycle that can withstand all difficulties of the Mountain Course. The Honda MotoGP-derived RC213V-S is the bike that comes closest to Repsol Honda MotoGP. A genuine racing motorcycle can run even on public roads.

Padgett will prepare Honda MotoGP-derived RC213V-S
Padgett, a historical partner of Honda, will try to prepare the Honda MotoGP-derived RC213V-S for this special race. The OEM travel kit is only a small part of the tuning “game”. The engine will be able to unleash his power up to about 215 horsepower. However, that’s only the beginning. The problem is that Honda MotoGP-derived RC213V-S has a terrible lack of off-the-shelf parts. “We had to beef up the bike for TT. Everything is made to measure. K-Tech wheels, forks, rear shocks, brakes and radiator guards.” said Clive Padgett.
However, the MotoGP-derived RC213V-S will make sure great performance on the Isle of Man. The motorcycle will be approx 5 cm longer than the Fireblade and this should increase the stability. At the same time, the V4 of the RC213V-S will handle like a 600cc bike, which is consistent with what Casey Stoner led before begin a test rider for Ducati. The bike can still be ordered for about 200,000 euros.
The 2016 Edition of the Isle of Man TT still has to take off. However, yesterday a pilot has already died during the trials of the 850cc class Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic. Dean Martin is the name of the rider.
