On Tuesday 4 February in Jakarta, Indonesia, reigning World Champions Repsol Honda Team unveiled Marc and Alex Marquez’ 2020 RC213V colours.
The current holders of the MotoGP™ and Moto2™ World Championship trophies donned their Repsol Honda Team leathers next to and on the number 93 and 73 bikes they’ll be racing this season, with Marc Marquez opting for a slightly different number design for the new season. The aim for 2020? Retaining the Triple Crown. And with 309 victories in the premier class, Honda have established themselves as the dominant force in Grand Prix racing and work over the winter period has been intensive to ensure that 2020 continues that trend.
Marc Marquez: "I am happy to come to Indonesia again, the atmosphere here he is like nothing else and it is great to be able to launch our 2020 efforts. The launches we have are always important to help ourselves back into the rhythm of the season. We approach this year the same as the last and all others before it, with our full focus and ready to work with the Repsol Honda Team to achieve the best we can. Together with HRC and Repsol we have achieved incredible things and continuing this success is a big source of motivation for me, and now I’m eager to start another season and compete again one the RC213V."
Alex Marquez: "It is a privilege to be part of the family that is the Repsol Honda Team. Already I have had the special feeling of stepping in the garage for the first time, working with my team for the first time and now meeting the world at the launch – I truly feel a part of the Repsol Honda Team. I know that there is much to learn and achieve in 2020 but I am devoted to giving my best, I’ll try to improve and learn every day and hope we can do a great season step by step."
