Jakarta - The Repsol Honda (HRC) Team has presented design, color and technical updates for the 2024 RC213V motorbike which will be the ride for their two racers, Joan Mir and Luca Marini, in MotoGP this season.

Quoted from the team's official statement, Tuesday, the 2024 Honda RC213V brings a number of improvements to the entire engine, from aerodynamic revisions to improvements to the engine and chassis.

“This will be another season of development, working together with our riders, partners, sponsors, engineers and team members as we strive to get better,” said HRC General Manager Tetsuhiro Kuwata.

Apart from that, the most striking thing about the introduction of the new HRC motorbike today is the color scheme which is not only dominated by orange but also includes dark blue.

This also marks 30 years of cooperation between HRC and Repsol. This relationship has resulted in 15 world titles, 183 MotoGP race wins, 455 podiums and nine triple crowns.

Apart from the new characteristics, this partnership is also entering a new era with the introduction of renewable fuels in MotoGP in 2024.

"2024 is a special year because we celebrate 30 years of cooperation with Repsol and enter a new era with renewable fuels," said Kuwata.

“Last year taught me a lot and I want to apply everything to this year to help the Repsol Honda team return to its best performance. "Let's enjoy this moment and immediately prepare for the upcoming season," said Mir.

Marini, who filled the seat left by Marc Marquez after joining for more than a decade, said he already felt connected to the members and technicians in his new team.

“We have just started our journey together, but I already feel part of the team and well supported by the engineers,” said Marini.

"I've only been on the bike for six days, so we want to make the most of the last test and start the year in the best way," he added.
