The road going Honda RC213V-S Prototype
Developed by Honda Racing Corporation (HRC) and Honda Motor, the RC213V-S is a road going prototype of the awesome Championship winning MotoGP RC213V machine. No technical details, information or the production date on the road going RC213V-S Prototype are available at this time.
Will the new Honda RC213V-S be unveiled at the EICMA motor show?
After two years of rumours, Honda filed yesterday 2014/10/31 a trademark application in EU for the name RC213V-S which indicates that the upcoming bike will be introduced at the EICMA motor show next week.
The letter S stands for a street version of the Honda motoGP RC213V race bike. Hence the RC213V-S will be a limited edition motorcycle and the price is expected to be suitable only to very few people on this planet! Thus she will not replace the CBR1000RR.
The 1000 cc V4 Honda RC213V-S is expected to be advertised as “an RC213V with lights”.

The engine layout of the rumored limited production bike is depicted in patent drawings, which were submitted in 2012 although they were revealed just a few days ago.
The drawings concern the water pump, driven by the camshaft of the forward cylinder. The CBR 1000 RR styling on the drawing is not really significant.
