From MotoGP to the road – this or something similar could have been the motto for the development of the Honda RC 213 V-S. It goes without saying that such noble technology has its price. Honda wanted a whopping 188,000 euros in 2015 for the RC 213 V-S. Since the bike was only sold with an additional sports kit in Germany, which cost an additional 12,000 euros, the price rose to 200,000 euros. In return, however, buyers also receive a very light and powerful motorcycle that would like to transport the driving experience from MotoGP to a production bike.
