Polini presents team Movistar replica minibike

The first day of the Portuguese GP saw the unveiling of the new Polini 910 Carena S "Replica Team Movistar Honda MotoGP" minibike. The new Polini minibike was presented on Friday afternoon, at the Team Movistar Honda hospitality, in the presence of Fausto Gresini and riders Sete Gibernau, Marco Melandri and Saimon Polini. The Polini Motori Spa marketing manager was also present.

"The agreement for 2005 with Fausto Gresini's team has allowed us to immediately find new production synergies. I'm so glad to present this new minibike. The new Polini Carena S "Replica Team Movistar Honda MotoGP" stands out because of the advanced technical solutions. Also because it was designed specifically with the youngest riders in mind, making it possible for them to ride competitively on racetracks," declared Saimon Polini.

The new Polini minibike features the same livery as the Honda RC211V raced by Gibernau and Melandri. It is a real miniature of a GP bike with a lot of excellent solutions: die-cast frame in light alloy with double diagonal trestle; aluminium alloy forks and rims; mechanical disk brake; rigid fork with 24mm stems. The air-cooled 39,69cc and 4,2HP engine (bore and stroke 36x39mm) is the latest version of the multi-titled 2-stroke Polini aluminium cylinder unit. The exhaust system has a "racing" style; it goes through the upper side of the frame and it ends with a light alloy silencer with triangular section, placed under the rear seat.
