Introducing Honda Jtech‰Ûªs World MX2 Charger Henry Jacobi

Germany's Next Big Thing to make World MX2 Championship debut at Qatar

Posted:

It‰Ûªs crazy how big the impact of one title can be. But when Germany‰Ûªs Henry Jacobi snatched the FIM 85cc Jr. World title at the tender age of 13 it was only confirmation of what people in the German scene already knew; this kid is something else.

Now the talented Jacobi will enter his first full season in the MX2 World Championship with the ambitious Honda Jtech squad. The friendly Thuringer is looking forward to his best year yet!

Hyped, neglected and resurrected. Henry has yet to celebrate his 20th birthday but already things have come full circle. Coming from the same region as Ken Roczen and following in his footsteps on K-Roc‰Ûªs handed down bikes Henry too won all junior classes. He even equalled Roczen‰Ûªs early succes until that 85cc world crown.

‰ÛÏThat was in 2010 and actually it came as a surprise,‰Û
Germany's next big hope: Henry Jacobi in action
For the first time in his career Jacobi got acquainted with a different bike manufacturer over the winter on top of switching to a new team.

‰ÛÏIt seemed like this huge step at first because I have been with another brand since I was four. Actually I got used to the Honda CRF250R quite quickly. The amazing thing is how well and precise the bike handles. Especially the feeling at the front is incredible. This allows me to place the motorcycle wherever I want, the bike now does what I want.

"Before this was not always the case. It‰Ûªs really sweet and gives a lot of confidence!‰Û
