Just when we’d forgotten how much we like the current Honda CBR1000RR, along comes this new World Endurance racer in RC30 colors. Beautiful. If it had the old yellow Honda wings on the tank I’d be unconscious on the floor right now.
This bike will be raced by Honda’s new TT Legends team, which includes Isle of Man, well, legends like Steve Plater, John McGuinness, Keith Amor and Cameron Donald. They’ll be entering the World Endurance Championship — first race is Bol d’Or on April 16/17 — but also road races like the TT and the Ulster GP. This bike? These colors? These racers? These races? Endurance racing? This is winning.
