Repsol Honda riders Pedrosa and Marquez receive new Honda replica scooters

Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez have received new Repsol Honda replica scooters for use in the paddock at the European rounds of the MotoGP Championship.

The sporty new NSC50R 50cc scooter, has an extremely efficient four-stroke engine, CBS braking system and now features the same paint scheme as the Repsol Honda Team machines!

It's class-leading environmental performance, thanks to highly efficient fuel economy, means it can cover 50 kilometres on just one litre of fuel in normal use, giving a great range from the 5.5-litre fuel tank of up to 273km. Also a tri-metal catalyser is used in the exhaust system which reduces harmful gas emissions to levels comfortably below EURO 3 requirements. An extra layer of safety is added by Honda’s CBS (Combined Braking System), linking the front hydraulic disc brake to the drum rear.

"It's fun for me and the team to have the scooter replica of our MotoGP bikes to get around the paddock. They are essential to move from the motorhome, to the garage, to hospitality, especially at the homes races in Spain! My team also use it to move around the service road during sessions over the weekend to watch me at different parts of the track and give me feedback"

"Having two such different bikes in the paddock is something quite strange! We jump from the 50cc scooter onto a 1000cc MotoGP machine - you can't get much more different! We also use the scooter to do our track inspection on Thursdays before each GP"
