£150,000 Honda RC213V-S finds first customer in the UK


Manchester-based Honda dealer, John Brown buys the world's first Honda RC213V-S

Earlier this week, Honda delivered their very first MotoGP-bike-for-the-street, the £150,000 RC213V-S, to a customer in the UK. John Brown, who owns and runs a Honda dealership in Manchester, and whose motorcycle collection already includes an RC30, VTR1000 SP1 and SP2, CBR900RR Fireblade and VF1000F, is now first guy in the world to own an RC213V-S. ‘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,’ says John. ‘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,’ he adds.

Honda claim that the RC213V-S is the closest a customer can come to owning and riding the RC213V MotoGP machine ridden by the likes of Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa. The bike is hand-built in a specialist area of Honda’s factory in Kumamoto, Japan, and those interested in buying one can register their interest on www.rc213v-s.com
