Honda's 2014 MotoGP Production Model Teaser

Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Honda has released a teaser image of the production model it’s developing for use in the 2014 MotoGP World Championship. There’s little information available regarding specs and no official name for the bike yet, but it’s intended to give non factory-backed teams a more affordable racing platform. Honda’s full press release is included below. - MotoUSA

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 lower cost starting from next season.

Honda Racing Corporation (HRC), with its test rider, ran a prototype successfully at the circuit of TWIN RING MOTEGI. The test took place from May 23rd through 24th, 2013.

Comment by Shuhei Nakamoto, Executive Vice President of Honda Racing Corporation
"Development of the model is currently a little behind schedule but the test results showed more than what we had expected, in particular, with its running performance. We can't announce its name or the specification at this stage but we will have an opportunity of announcing 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 the model by the end of this year."

BTW, what is pictured here is the Production Racer for MtotGP use. This was taken during the test recently held at Motegi. The Road-going RC213V will be similar.

Rumor has it Honda will make a very limited run of the RC213V for street use, much like Ducati did with its' Desmosedicci RR. This bike will be a very close replica to the MotoGP RC213V and will most likely have a HUGE price tag, just like the Desmo did, shich sold out. This bike will not be a replacement for the fireblade, it will be a special edition offering.

Ahh, thanks anthony for the heads up. I was actually hoping for a revamp CBR or something at least.

@mi2tom I don't think anything will happen with the CBR. This bike is being made for teams who want to take a crack at MotoGP on Honda equipment. It is misleading. This isn't exactly a production bike for the masses.
