What was Marc Marquez riding and is it similar to MotoGP™?

Over the past few weeks, a handful of riders have taken to the track riding superbikes for their pre-season training as they awaited the arrival of the Qatar Test. Since its release in 2015, many Honda riders have turned to the Honda RC213V-S as a training bike, none more recently than Marc Marquez (Repsol Honda Team). The RC213V-S was inspired directly by the 2013 and 2014 Honda RC213V and the Open Class RCV1000R of 2014, with it taking a large portion of the MotoGP™ bike’s DNA. If you had to summarise the RC213V-S, it’s a very, very special superbike. It takes the very best of MotoGP™ and applies it to the road, which is why in the 6 years since its release we have seen so many riders use it as a training bike.
