Posted:



Some of Honda's biggest racing stars have taken part in a presentation to launch the company's new Off-Road and Street bike model line-up for 2014.

John McGuinness, Toni Bou, Paulo Gon̤alves and Leon Haslam were in Milan in Italy on Monday night to ride the new models on to the stage in front of the world's motorcycle media.

They were joined by three of Honda's racing stars of the future, European Junior Cup winner, New Zealand's Jake Lewis, Honda 150 European champion Filippo Grigoletto and European Junior Cup rider Sabrina Pauita.

Honda's 2014 line-up includes four completely new models, two new 650cc machines with an inline four-cyclinder engine, the new CTX1300 cruiser and the next evolution of the NC series.

The range also features new directions for Honda's VFR800F and the CBR1000RR Fireblade which spearheads Honda's racing activities in World Superbike, the Isle of Man TT and World Endurance, including the famous Suzuka 8-Hour race in Japan.

John McGuinness, 20-time TT winner, rode an updated CBR1000RR on to the Milan stage, while World Superbike rider and 2013 Suzuka 8-Hour winner, Leon Haslam, brought on a new Fireblade SP featuring Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes.
