MCN: Japan earthquake delays Honda 1000cc track debut

In comments published by MCN, Vice President of HRC Shuhei Nakamoto confirmed that the on-track debut of Honda’s developing 1000cc MotoGP machine for the 2012 season had been delayed due to the earthquake in Japan.

A Test had been planned at Motegi in the week leading up to the Qatar GP, but was cancelled after the tragic events in Japan. “Dyno testing has just finished and we are happy. We wanted to test last week but our plan is now delayed. Suzuka or another track in the West side of Japan is available but we didn't have any fuel for the trucks, so we couldn't move. Fuel is being delivered again this week so maybe we will test soon,” Nakamoto explained.
