Factory Fortunes: Honda´s 2009 lineup

Factory Fortunes: Honda´s 2009 lineup

The riders attempting to bring the MotoGP World Championship back to Japan in 2009.

Once again Honda have the most bikes on the MotoGP grid, with six RC212Vs set to rev up for the opening race of the year. The factory version of the machine will be used by Dani Pedrosa for his latest assault on the title, but this time he will have a new rival on the other side of his garage. Andrea Dovizioso joins the Repsol Honda team for his second season in the class, handing over the oldest version of the Japanese bike to newcomer Yuki Takahashi.

San Carlo Honda Gresini will have a near-factory machine for returning rider Toni Elias, who partners Alex de Angelis, whilst Randy de Puniet continues with LCR Honda for a second year.

The accompanying video previews Honda´s 2009 season.
