Honda RC211V

An engine designed for a new era

With the arrival of 4 strokes, Honda decided to design an engine that would make history.

The new regulations mandated four-stroke engines. Honda built a V5 engine, the first in the history of the competition, and, by using the "Big Bang” configuration, the increasingly refined electronics made history. From 2002 to 2006, the RC211Vs were ridden by Valentino Rossi, Tohru Ukawa, Álex Barros, Max Biaggi, Nicky Hayden, and Dani Pedrosa.
