Checa: 'The LCR Honda isn't so different'

Whilst many riders are feeling the difference between the 800cc prototypes and the previous 990cc bikes, LCR Honda's Carlos Checa is undaunted by the change. The Spaniard, testing at the Official Test in Qatar this week, spoke to motogp.com about his ease of adaptation to the RC212V.

Whilst many riders are feeling the difference between the 800cc prototypes and the previous 990cc bikes, LCR Honda's Carlos Checa is undaunted by the change. The Spaniard, testing at the Official Test in Qatar this week, spoke to motogp.com about his ease of adaptation to the RC212V.

"It's true that the dimensions of the bike are smaller. A lot of people have said that I wanted to change the tail and the fuel tank to fit my size, but we're talking a centimeter of difference here. There are also a few things that I haven't asked for that other Honda riders requested," said Checa.
