New RC211V takes bow with Ukawa

Tohru Ukawa rolled out the latest version of the Honda RC211V at Motegi this morning, with the world's press eagerly surrounding the Japanese rider as he emerged from his pit-box. However, hopes of a radically new version of the all-conquering machine were quelled for now, with Ukawa's bike virtually identical in looks to that of factory rider Alex Barros.

Any attempt to get a swift peek under the fairing was also prevented by Honda, who quickly pulled down the shutters on the garage when Ukawa returned to boxes at the end of the session.
