Winner of national 500cc and Superbike competitions in Japan, this skilled rider got two podiums in the 1995 and 1996 seasons when he proudly wore the Repsol Honda Team colours. Itoh raced for Honda again in 2002 and 2011 as a Wildcard.

Alex was with us during 2004 and made up the Repsol Honda team alongside Nicky Hayden. During this year, he came in second place once and third place three times, finishing the season in a respectable fourth place in the world standings.

Max Biaggi wore the Repsol Honda Team colours in 2005 and stepped onto the podium on four occasions: twice in second place and twice in third place. He ended the season in fifth place in the world standings.

+5 from Sete Gibernau


Today he is a familiar face in the paddock as Dani Pedrosa’s personal assistant, but he also raced for the Repsol Honda Team in 1998, 1999, and 2000. During this time, he shared the Box with two world champions — Álex Crivillé and Mick Doohan — and racked up five podiums.

+10 from Tohru Ukawa


Five-time winner of the Suzuka 8 Hours, Tohru Ukawa, was part of the team in 2001 and 2002. He is the only official Repsol Honda Team rider to have raced in both 500cc and MotoGP. During these two years competing in the two different categories, Ukawa got a total of 10 podiums, one in 500cc and the rest in MotoGP.

Dani Pedrosa and Casey Stoner’s teammate in the Box, Dovi was a Repsol Honda rider from 2009 to 2011. In this period, the Italian obtained 15 important podiums for the team.

A Repsol Honda Team legend, Okada proudly wore our colours from 1996 to 2000. He stepped onto the podium 21 times in his career with Repsol Honda, and in 1997 he was runner-up in the world championship just behind his teammate Mick Doohan.

The Australian was with us during the 2011 and 2012 seasons. Two thrilling years in which Casey managed to obtain 26 podiums and the title of world champion.

Alex gave us 44 podiums from 1995 to 2001. In this time, he was also the first Spaniard to be crowned world champion in 1999.

+48 from Mick Doohan


How can we forget the achievements of the person who was for many the first Repsol rider! Mike took away five MotoGP world championship titles, four of which were with the team. He was the first to take the Repsol Honda Team to the highest levels of competition and put us on the podium 48 times.
