Today, at Sentul International Circuit Marc and Dani, together with HRC Executive Vice President Shuhei Nakamoto and Team Principal Livio Suppo, unveiled the 2016 RC213V in front of the Indonesian fans.

This marks the second consecutive year that the Team has held its official launch in Indonesia, where the passion for MotoGP is incredible. The spectacle for the fans was even greater at this year‰Ûªs edition, as event-host Astra Honda Indonesia capitalized on the occasion to present their 2016 racing activities and officially launch the new Honda CBR150R, which Marc and Dani rode on the Sentul track, much to the enjoyment of the cheering crowd.

Shuhei Nakamoto, HRC Executive Vice President, said, "This country is very important for Honda and we are very happy to be here this weekend. We are also glad to hear from the Minister of Sport and Youth their intention to hold a GP here. Indonesian fans deserve to see live their MotoGP heroes in action! Next week Marc and Dani will have three important days of testing in Phillip Island.

"We are working very hard to improve our knowledge of the new common software and Michelin tyres. We are also working on our new engine but I believe our engineers will be able to give Dani and Marc a good machine to fight for the Championship!‰Û

"Now we go to Australia and I‰Ûªm looking forward to continuing our work on the new engine and the new electronics. We made a few steps in the right direction over the three days at Sepang but we need to make some more at Phillip Island. I‰Ûªm confident the HRC engineers and my team will come up with more improvements as we get used to the new software.‰Û
