HRC Moto3 Bike





Honda unveils Moto3 machine

Thursday, 2 June 2011
Honda Racing Corporation officially presented its NSF250R Moto3 bike in a press conference at Catalunya today.


In front of an enthusiastic throng of cameras and journalists, Executive Vice-President Shuhei Nakamoto and Project Development leader Yoshiyuki Kurayoshi of Honda Racing Corporation unveiled the new NSF250R bike at a press conference at Montmelo.

The liquid cooled, single cylinder 4-stroke Moto3 machine, which will replace the current 2-stroke, 125cc bike used in the GP125 class in 2012, inherits important elements from its 125cc predecessor, including a chassis and geometry based on the successful frame of 125cc machine. Improvements over the former class bike are plenty, including titanium valves, a sealed crankshaft, and a dry weight of 84kg. The new machine will be available for purchase at the end of 2011.

Shuhei Nakamoto explained the philosophy behind the development of their Moto3 machinery, stating: "Our aim is to expand the base of motorsports through the Moto3 class, and the greatest joy would be for this class to be a springboard for future champions.”

Also joining the stage was former world champion Alex Criville. “Itīs time to change to Moto3. The future will be more interesting,” he stated. “For me, itīs a good time to change to this class.” Criville will ride a demonstration lap at approximately 17h00 on Friday, June 3rd, and an additional demonstration lap ahead of the MotoGP Warm-Up session on Sunday 5th June.

HFL says cost is about $38,000

Don't forget you have to buy brakes, suspension, traction control, etc, etc.
Still: looks awesome.

Will be seeing dunlops on this bike..

Dunlop to supply Moto3 and Moto2

Friday, 3 June 2011
Dunlop Motorsport, IRTA and Dorna Sports have signed a contract for the exclusive supply of tyres to the Moto3 Championship, a deal which will commence upon the introduction of the new category in 2012 and will run until the end of the 2014 season. An agreement has also been made to extend the existing Moto2 Championship contract until at least the end of 2014.


Dunlop will supply tyres and technical support to every competitor in Moto3, the replacement for the 125cc World Championship. Dunlop has exclusively supplied tyres to Moto2 since its inauguration in 2010. Dunlop’s supply has been ratified by Dorna and the International Road Racing Teams Association (IRTA).

Sanjay Khanna, Managing Director, Dunlop Brand Europe, Middle East and Africa said: “Dorna, IRTA and the teams have endorsed Dunlop’s commitment to motorcycle Grand Prix racing by extending our Moto2 supply and awarding us the contract for the exciting new Moto3 Championship. These are strong validations of Dunlop’s technology which will continue to be highlighted to a worldwide audience through these fantastic Championships.”

Jean-Félix Bazelin, General Manager, Dunlop Motorsport commented: “Moto3 is an exciting new Championship for Dunlop, our engineers and technicians and we relish the new challenge, and look forward to the progress in our understanding as we develop tyres for the new 250cc 4-stroke powered racing machines. The extension of our Moto2 contract is a strong validation of the good job we have done in that Championship, the results of which are clear to see.”

Sharon Antonaros, Dunlop Europe Motorcycle Marketing Director stated: “Dunlop participates in motorcycle racing in order to develop our products and our knowledge of the latest technology. This provides benefits for our consumers such as our NTEC and Multi-Tread technologies which we have enhanced further through our Moto2 relationship. Moto3 is a fantastic new proving ground and we will benefit from being there at the start of the Championship, when the learning curve is at its steepest, and the potential rewards are at their greatest.”

Carmelo Ezpeleta, Dorna CEO, said: "It is a great honour to be able to continue working with a brand such as Dunlop in the new Moto3 category, and also to extend the existing collaboration we have with them in Moto2 until the end of 2014. Dunlop’s passion for the world of motorcycling and its commitment to the MotoGP World Championship are values which have consolidated the relationship between Dorna, and this has been done through two of the three categories which comprise the World Championship. There is no doubt that the constant technological work carried out by Dunlop to improve their products allows the circuit to be a testing ground for these developments, and that this technology is then transferred to the road.”

^hmmmm I woulda hoped for more.. the Ninja 250 has like 30hp doesn't it??

I was hoping for more like 60hp... 60hp with an 85 kilo bike would be pretty unreal to ride. considering our bikes are about 90-100 kilos more

60hp is 450cc single power. ^^

Mid 40's sounds reasonable, that's what the pro level 250F race bikes used in SX and Motocross make.
