UK customer is first in the world to collect Honda RC213V-S

Think you got some good Christmas presents? Think again.

THE first Honda RC213V-S has been presented to its new owner at Honda’s UK racing headquarters.

John Brown collected his new RC213V-S just before Christmas and is the first customer in the world to be presented with Honda’s road legal MotoGP replica.

Mr Brown runs a Honda motorcycle dealership in Manchester and with brand new RC30, VTR1000 SP1 and SP2, CBR900RR Fireblade and VF1000F already in his garage, it’s safe to say he’s a fan of Hondas. On collecting the bike, he said:

‘When I first heard of this project I thought ‘when this happens I have to have one of these’. It is a truly amazing opportunity to own a piece of HRC racing history. As soon as it went on sale I registered my interest on the website, and when I received the call from Honda to say my order was accepted it was a very special day for me. I joined my family business as a 17-year old and have been a Honda dealer ever since. My dealership has been one of the top-three in the UK for many years and the bike will be great with my existing collection. I’d like to thank all the people at Honda for making this dream come true.’

Gis a go, mate.
