MotoGP: Aerodynamic revolution for Honda: here is Bradl's new fairing

Honda needs a definite change of pace, and it cannot be said that it is not working hard to achieve it. It has also fielded test rider Stefan Bradl in Jerez, and it is up to him to rehearse over the race weekend to test a thoroughly revised aerodynamic package. Just a distracted glance at the number 6 RC213V is enough to realize how different it is from the one seen in the first GPs of the year.

Japanese engineers have revolutionized the entire fairing, even beating out unprecedented paths. The tail is the most unusual part, almost a huge wing on which the rider is seated, from which rises another spoiler of very automotive taste. Gone, however, are the stegosaurus-like side wings.

The fairing has also been redesigned, and it is very reminiscent of the Ducati, with wings that are smaller than on the GP24, but also the whole side, where the 'ears', previously seen on the Honda, have reappeared, but with a different shape.

The whole fairing is different, with hot air extractors already seen on Aprilia first and Ducati later. The tank has also been redesigned, and in the side view you can also see the exhaust that protrudes a lot from the tail.

Below is a photo of Marini's bike for comparison.
