The Honda Welcome Plaza in Japan drew a number of MotoGP fans last Saturday for Shinya Nakano's official presentation as a Konica Minolta rider.

Kitted out in team uniform, and accompanied by Company Director Yuki Kobayashi, Nakano posed alongside his 2007 bike, the 800cc RC212V. The Japanese rider will make his next appearance onboard the bike in Sepang next week, after an impressive debut performance at the Jerez test in November.

"I'm really happy to have been able to share this moment with Honda, Konica Minolta and the fans," commented the former Kawasaki rider. "I feel a great deal of confidence about my chances this season, as this looks like a winning team with the bike and tyres that took last year's title. It's a great outfit, and I'm going to try and bring them their first World Championship victory whilst being a regular podium finisher."
