Honda riders meet fans in Tokyo

The six MotoGP representatives of the Japanese manufacturer met fans at the factory headquarters on Wednesday.

Repsol Honda duo Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso were joined by Marco Simoncelli and Marco Melandri (San Carlo Honda Gresini), Randy de Puniet (LCR Honda) and Hiroshi Aoyama (Interwetten Honda MotoGP) at the Japanese factory’s headquarters in Tokyo on Wednesday where all six riders took part in a talk show on stage in front of fans.

Two hundred fortunate guests were present to meet their heroes and were joined by the media as the sextuplet assessed their respective seasons to date and looked ahead to the final run-in of the 2010 campaign, which starts with Round 14 this weekend, the Grand Prix of Japan.

Following the on-stage talk show the riders participated in a photo session with the fans, and a prize draw then took place in which t-shirts, gloves and boots were given away to those present. Birthday boy Pedrosa, who turned 25 today, was also presented with a cake to celebrate the occasion.
