Honda’s Jonathan Rea
recently spoke about his opportunity to test Casey Stoner
’s RC213V MotoGP bike at Brno. The World Superbike rider was chosen to step in during testing after the GP contest at the Czech circuit since Stoner was forced to sit the round out due to an injury
he sustained at Indianapolis. Rea has been with Honda for much of his career and has brought success to the team in a number of race series, most recently at the Suzuka 8 Hours WEC
race in Japan. Rea gave a brief interview about the opportunity Friday before the WSBK race at Moscow Raceway, and he’s excited to have the chance to pilot what he calls a “proper fire-breathing race machine” and provide whatever feedback to the team that he can.
