Eight-time World Champion Marc Marquez and new teammate Pol Espargaro were pictured in Repsol Honda Team colours on social media yesterday, as the duo and the team gave fans a little preview ahead of the official launch on the 22nd of February.
Most notably, Marc Marquez was pictured in his leathers – a good sign that he is able to manoeuvre himself into them as he continues his recovery from his December right arm fracture surgery. A stoked Pol Espargaro was once again in Repsol Honda clothing, he posted a picture of himself posing for the camera in what was – you'd think – an official photoshoot for the launch.
In one photo, the rear of Honda’s famous Repsol branded RC213V was seen, an agonising teaser as to what the 2021 machine will look like. We're still unsure as to when we'll see the number 93 of Marquez back on the bike, but what we do know is that Pol Espargaro will be getting his first taste of the Honda in March's Qatar Test. Safe to say plenty of people will be keeping a keen eye on the former KTM star's debut.
