    Specifications for the Honda RC213V-S have not been revealed, but it is expected to be launched at the Tokyo Motor Show later this year. The bike visually resembles the MotoGP bike, but details of what lies beneath is still not known. Though the fairing is completely carbon! The bike was ridden onto the stage by 2014 MotoGP Champion Marc Marquez. The bike was shown with the Japanese flag integrated into the paint scheme on the side of the bike.

    Honda might not have shown its hand at EICMA, but ensured that enthusiasts will be ever expectant in the wake of the launches by Ducati, Yamaha and Kawasaki in the litre class segment.

    Its looks more like a dragster from the sides, not SBK like (IMO purely) !!!, could have got in integrated indicators like in R1 or N650...

    I hope you're not serious. This is their MotoGP replica street legal bike, the same bike Marquez and Dani are on but will mostly be slightly detuned for reliability aspects. This is only the prototype and changes will take place between now and final product. This bike has been under development from the RC212V days but was put on hold because of the costs involved. Only limited numbers will be made just like that 2006 Desmosedici RR which costed $72000, only this one is rumored to cost $100,000. Unfortunately only the rich businessmen can afford one and then they will be turned into a collector's item and preserved in some museum for the rest of its life
    Here is the first look and exhaust note of that V4:

    $100,000... Am I reading it right? Man, at that astronomical price, I doubt any serious racer will ever buy it..

    IMO, price is unbeatable and the wheel base looks a bit stretched to me, thus its looking like drag racer SBK.

    Limited models afaik. Remember the Desmosedici RR MotoGP replica that sold for $72000 in 2006?
