WSBK Honda title sponsorship back to Castrol

I love how the new Ten Kate Honda SBK looks.

I'm actually going to miss the Hannspree colors. But the Castrol looks good. My guess is the leathers will be plain though.

I dig it the scheme. only thing I don't like is the front fairing on the 1000rr, it looks like a whale sort of.

I knew the leathers would have the old school look to them. At least the bike looks good.

Would have been cool if Ducati wouldn't have pulled the factory team, as that's where Colin was headed. See Colin on a factory Duc. chasing Rea on the Castrol Honda.

Ten Kate has quite a bit to live up to w/Castrol backing them, flying those colors. Hope they're up for it.

Rea is already talking some pretty serious smack. Better back it up.

Looks like Honda's trying to channel some good vibes by bringing back the same look they last won SBK in

The bike looks great, but I absolutely loved the old Ten Kate scheme. Mixed emotions for this I suppose.

97? Those were still the days of Ducati dominance and I don't even think Hanspree was a company yet.

I meant he won in 07.


edit: P.S. Honda DID win in 97 with Kocinski but that's not what I was talking about. :P
