The Honda RC213V-S

From Honda:

"Developed by Honda Racing Corporation (HRC) and Honda Motor, the RC213V-S is a road going prototype of the awesome Championship winning MotoGP RC213V machine. Inspired by, and developed with input from many legendary GP riders, the RC213V-S Prototype is set to be the ultimate road going motorcycle.
Two machines have been presented; a static bike painted with a distinctive Japanese flag to mark 100 years of the EICMA show, along with a fully functioning, running version clothed in full carbon-fibre, fittingly ridden onto the stage by 2013/14 MotoGP champion, Marc Marquez.
No further technical details or information on the road going RC213V-S Prototype available at this time".

That's a whole lot of "I-cannot-afford-it".

You think it would make a good sports-tourer?

i think it's boring.

may have a king kong motor and the best ohlins you can buy, but the styling (and particularly the red/white/blue livery) does nothing for me. nada.

It's styled after the GP machine, duh!

It's not trying to be daring or exciting. It's trying to replicate a race bike.

Yeah the sun on the fairing looks a little out of place. Everything else looks straight up amazing.
