“Having achieved our goals last season by again winning the Triple Crown, we’re delighted to present our team for the 2020 MotoGP World Championship. Last season, Marc Marquez won his sixth MotoGP title, while Honda secured both the Constructors and Team titles. Marc continues to break records every year, and we hope he’ll continue to give us many more great moments in the future.

“For 2020 we have a new rider as two-time world champion in Moto2 and Moto3 Alex Marquez joins us. He rode with us already in 2014 in our first season in Moto3 and we were able to achieve the title together.

“These two brilliant riders deserve the best tools to be successful this new season, and it’s our mission to make this possible. Our engineers in Japan and our team around the world have done an impressive job, and I’m sure that we’ll do it again this time.”

The launches we have are always important to help ourselves back into the rhythm of the season.
