Destined for Grand Prix greatness.
The 2007 MotoGP season was marked by several notable changes. For the previous five seasons, riders could race bikes up to 990 cc. That year, riders were restricted to smaller 800 cc bikes, which offer superior braking and handling. Teams were also restricted to a maximum 31 tires per race weekend per rider. Pressure from sponsors and riders resulted in an increase of nine additional tires later in the season. Repsol Honda racer Julián Simón (#60) scored 123 points this season, placing 9th. Shuhei Aoyama (#73) was also on the team, earning his first-ever pole position during a race at Motegi. Overall, the Honda team earned 313 points in 2007, finishing 2nd (just behind Ducati®). This limited edition kit features many newly tooled parts, including a seat pad, a rear swing arm, a tank pad and rear fender parts.
