Honda RC213V

Marc Marquez announces withdrawal from 2022 MotoGP season to undergo fourth surgery on right arm at the Mayo Clinic.


Honda is scheduled to unveil its 2022 RC213V race bike on January 14, 2022.

However, the global unveiling will take place without six-time MotoGP world champion, Marc Marquez who is still nursing his injured eye.

Instead, Repsol Honda has confirmed that the event will continue with Pol Espargaro and LCR Honda riders, Takaaki Nakagami and Alex Marquez.

Missing out on the bike unveiling is not an issue for the Honda camp, however, Marquez’s latest diplopia (double vision) diagnosis is still a concern as there is no confirmation if he could make it on time ahead of the Sepang test in February.

The Spaniard suffered the injury at the 2021 Algarve GP, but HRC only reported it as a concussion before the team confirmed the rider is struggling with diplopia.

Nevertheless, we hope Marquez could still make it back just in time for the pre-season test in Sepang or at least given enough time to test out the updated RC213V.

Pol Espargaro might have gotten one of the best Christmas presents anyone in motorsports has only dreamt about. Although it’s a bit late, all can be forgiven when you’ve spent your morning training hard and coming home to see a Repsol Honda RC213V perched in your living space. (more…)
