2015 Honda RC213V-S Prototype Unveiled | Gawk Responsibly

2015 Honda RC213V-S Prototype

Remember Honda’s “Gawk Responsibly” ad campaign for its 2010 lineup of cruisers?

This was the first thing that surfaced in our minds when Honda Motor Europe unveiled the road-worthy RC213V-S Prototype at EICMA 2014 Milan Motorcycle show.

The RC213V-S Prototype was ridden onto the EICMA stage by two-time MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez (Respol Honda).

Honda Motor Europe is completely hush on all technical details, but the bike is basically a street-legal version of the RC213V prototype. It should arrive with 1000cc V4 similar to the engine offered in the MotoGP RC213V, and from the pics we know it arrives with Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes.

Everything else is there to make it street legal, including headlights, blinkers, brake lights, bar-end mirrors and a license-plate holder.

At EICMA, Honda unveiled the bike in two color combos – Japanese flag graphics and a full carbon-fiber version.

If this bike does make it to America, it will be truly exclusive and likely have a price approaching six figures. Until the official info is released, gawk responsibility at the pics above.
