Chassis For 2017 the chassis has been modified in its rigidity balance and designed to reach the maximum compatibility between turning and stability. The twin-spar aluminium chassis is immensely light and yet provides the ideal stiffness and strength characteristics required to contain and deliver more than 180kw from the RC213V’s engine to the rear tyre. As well as strength, the chassis features the right amount of carefully designed flexibility to enhance tyre grip.
Engine We adopted 4 cylinder “V” engine with 1,000 capacity to RC213V which can exploit maximum power of 1,000cc keeping duration for 18 races in season with 7 engines. We have reviewed all the details of the new engine, making it lighter, more power and rider-friendly characteristics.
Suspension The RC213V is fitted with Ohlins suspension front and rear. Providing the essential link between wheel and chassis, the suspension’s job is to keep the tyre in contact with the ground and producing maximum grip as the machine hits the thousands of bumps and ripples encountered on every lap. It’s a crucial link in the performance chain and for this reason both Repsol Honda riders have a dedicated Ohlins technician assigned to him.
Bodywork The lightweight carbon-fibre bodywork plays an important role in making the RC213V as aerodynamic as possible. The 2016 RC213V has a modified fairing to reach the maximum compatibility and performance between handling and drag.
Tyres MotoGP tyres are supplied exclusively by Michelin. Each rider is permitted to use a maximum of 22 slick tyres, 14 wet tyres and 6 intermediate tyres during each grand prix weekend.
Brakes Carbon fiber front brakes are provided by Brembo. For rear disk and front disk under wet conditions the RC213V relies on Yutaka steel brake disks.
