Pol Espargarò didn’t find his gift under the Christmas tree but... on the terrace of his house. Precisely, on the snow-covered terrace of his house in Andora is where he was suprised with the Honda RC213V, which he’ll be racing with this year. It was a first-time opportunity for him to wear the Repsol colors and get on the bike.
“I'm about to cry. I never imagined it. Can I keep it here forever?" the Spanish rider laughed in surprise.
For the moment, he was only able to enjoy a static contact.
"It's a bit smaller than I expected," he commented.
To see him in action, we’ll have to wait for the Sepang tests scheduled for the second half of February.
"This bike has always been the rival to beat. It was everyone's goal," he concluded.
