The very first owner of Honda's RC213V-S across the globe is John Brown from the United Kingdom. He accepted delivery of the street legal race machine from Honda's Racing headquarter in the UK. Christmas has surely come early for John Brown with his brand new RC213V-S.
John Brown is an existing Honda user and owns an extensive collection. In his garage are the VTR1000 SP1 and SP2, along with the VF1000F, and the CBR900RR Fireblade model. It is unclear if the RC213V-S for him is a collectors item or a track tool.
The RC213V-S is developed by inputs from Honda's current MotoGP riders Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa. Honda has maintained most of the MotoGP elements on the bike, however, making it street legal with the inclusion of headlights, brake lights, turn indicators, and even mirrors.
Honda spent three years in the development of their street legal MotoGP machine. The RC213V-S went on sale from July 13, 2015, and only limited motorcycles will be manufactured. Each RC21V-S is hand built at Honda's Kumamoto facility. The street legal MotoGP machine costs only 1.50 lakh Pounds or Rs. 1.48 crore Indian equivalent.
All future deliveries of RC213V-S will be done in the new year by Honda worldwide. Customers are surely in for a surprise as dealerships will be offering a premium experience to owners. Honda will be offering the RC213V-S in either a tricolour option or an unpainted Carbon-fibre option, which will need to be painted prior to use.
