MotoGP riders Nicky Hayden and Shinya Nakano were in attendance at Honda Racing's 2008 presentation in Tokyo on Thursday, representing MotoGP in the prestigious factory's annual event.

Traditionally bringing together motorsport competitors from all disciplines flying the Honda flag, the presentation was as ever a star-studded affair. Hayden and Nakano were fitting choices for two-wheel representation, being the Japanese factory's most recent World Champion and sole premier class home rider respectively.

Originally pencilled in to join his 800cc colleagues, Dani Pedrosa stayed on in Spain after the MotoGP Official Test to further recover from his hand injury.

In the act, Honda outlined their goals for 2008, setting their sights firmly on recapturing both the rider, manufacturer and team World Championships in MotoGP.
