Repsol Honda unveil new look

The new leathers and designs that will adorn Nicky Hayden and Dani Pedrosa and their bike in 2006 have been unveiled by Repsol Honda. Those present at the first day of MotoGP testing in Sepang were gifted the sight of the Spaniard wearing the team colours for the first time, a mixture of white and navy blue together with the petrol company´s characteristic orange.

Pedrosa will wear his name on the back of his leathers, but with the Repsol logo appearing on his shoulders it is situated on his lower back. It is also likely that the Spaniard will change helmet colour to match that of his new outfit. The designs to decorate the bike stay much the same as last season, the only real change being the inclusion of the sponsor´s logo above the rider number.

The team have used the session in Sepang to take the first pictures of their riders resplendent in their new leathers and alongside the RC211V which they hope to ride to victory in 2006.

The first images of both Repsol Honda´s bike and riding gear are available to view on motogp.com, accompanied by an interview with Spaniard Pedrosa in his native tongue. The rookie talks about his development and the new bike, also taking time to evaluate the performance of World Champion Valentino Rossi.

"At the moment he is going fast, he´s clocking good times and he´s in a good rhythm, concentrating on his own work and not waiting for others" commented last year´s 250cc World Champion.
