For 2017 the RC213V is fitted with Ohlins suspension front and rear. Providing the essential link between wheel and chassis, the suspension's job is to keep the tyre in contact with the ground and producing maximum grip as the machine hits thethousands of bumps and ripples encountered on every lap. It's a crucial link in the performance chain and for this reason both Repsol Honda rider shave a dedicated Ohlins technicianas signed to him.


MotoGP tyres are supplied exclusively by Michelin. Each rider is permitted to use a maximum of 22 slick tyres and 11 wet tyres during each grand prix weekend.


Carbon fiber front brakes are provided by Brembo. For rear disk and front disk under wet conditions the RC213V relies on Yutaka steel brake disks.


For 2017 the chassis has been modified in its rigidity balance and designed to reach the maximum compatibility between turning and stability. The twin-spar aluminum chassis is immensely light and yet provides the ideal stiffness and strength characteristics required to contain and deliver more than 180kw from the RC213V's engine to the rear tyre. As well as strength, the chassis features the right amount of carefully designed flexibility to enhance tyre grip.


We adopted 4 cylinder 'V' engine with 1,000 capacity to RC213V which can exploit maximum power of 1,000cc keeping duration for 18 races in season with 7 engines. We have reviewed all the details of the new engine, making it lighter, more power and rider-friendly characteristics.
