2012 LCR Honda MotoGP Team – Over 250HP of 1,000cc RC213V Power


2012 should be a great year for Honda race bikes. LCR Honda Team has announced the technical specs of the RC213V that reveals the 1,000cc engine can generate over 250HP of power output! Stefan Bradl will be riding the bike for the LCR Honda MotoGP team this year after moving from Moto2 as champion of 2011. The bike in theory can be said to be powerful than the Ducati GP12 that has been claimed to generate over 230HP.

This might be true since Stefan Bradl is inching away from Hayden and Rossi in Jerez test. Anyway you see it, getting a high power of 250HP from a 1,000cc is something absolutely amazing and technically challenging. It is more challenging because is the engine is NA(normal aspirated) not turbo or supercharged. One of the biker talks about the engine from Honda is about the application of pneumatic valves, but I don’t know anything about it yet. Honda, they always has been on the edge of the technical prowess.
