Thread: Honda’s RC213V for production racing.

Honda’s available for production racing.

really deserve its own thread but I want to clog up the GP thread.

been reading that are going to make available the for production racing translation = it be available to the CRT entries

Honda is working on a simplified of its RC213V MotoGP machine to to teams as a CRT bike. Working with Thomas Baujard, for the French magazine Moto we have learned that on the V4 machine is already underway, a production date for the bike is not yet

HRC boss Shuhei Nakamoto to Baujard at Silverstone that was ongoing on the project, though did not like it being referred to as a CRT “Not a CRT bike,” Nakamoto Baujard, “it is a production racer!” asked later about the layout, Nakamoto confirmed the bike was a V4 rather than an four. “It is a replica of this Nakamoto told me, pointing to the Honda garage, “But It is easier to use an existing design.”

The main differences would be in the of technology in the bike. “The will maybe use a standard And we are still thinking about valves,” Nakamoto said. The on using pneumatic valves was not on the introduction of a rev limit in MotoGP, said. “The rev limit is not Pneumatic valves offer advantages, such as more timing and more aggressive cam the pneumatic valves better to follow a steeper cam profile.

Nakamoto was coy on when the bike reach production. “Soon,” was as as the HRC boss would be. “I know it will be,” he said, but he not be drawn any further than “soon”.

The production of a Honda replica CRT machine is a game-changer for the CRT The return of a production racer, to the Yamaha TZ, Suzuki RG and Honda RS of machines, has long been the and aim of all parties involved in MotoGP – in early 2010, FIM President Ippolito told MotoMatters what was needed was a “series a production racer like the TZs he to race in the 1970s and ’80s – and ART machine was the first step such a bike.

The Aprilias are suffering reliability however: though built for they were also to be rebuilt regularly. Max Biaggi 28 engines during the 2011 season, more than two per weekend. Randy de Puniet has 12 to last for 18 race weekends, his engines need to last three times as long as WSBK-spec RSV4 engines.

can use the knowledge gained from RC213V (already a paragon of to ensure that the bike is powerful and reliable enough, and based on the bike currently raced by Casey Stoner and Pedrosa, it should be significantly competitive than the current of CRTs, despite the lower spec being applied. The should suit the spec better than the CRT bikes, make it more competitive.

Pricing will likely be a less than the million that satellite lease are likely to be capped at. With a few satellite bikes available – at a euros, the factories are not inclined to very many, as the cost of satellite bikes is high – a CRT of the RC213V would be very in demand.

The fact that are willing to produce such a and make it available to CRT teams mean that the Claiming itself is about to be dropped. The members have seen the bikes being entered the CRT rules are no threat to their of the MotoGP class, and therefore nothing to fear from the claiming rule.

Indeed, not losing an engine to factory makes it more for a company such as Honda to a CRT machine. HRC would have in the first instance over who the the bike to, and by the time it is sold on at the end of the the technology would be sufficiently to make it acceptable to lose to a

More details of the bike are awaited. For now, we shall to wait for Nakamoto-san’s “soon” to

I wonder how down graded the will be by time it reaches its buyer. Keeping that in maybe it will help the gap? (which I think drop a bit next year anyway).
