There is no truth in the rumour that the Tech3 KTM team will be sponsored by Oros.

The official Honda satellite team, LCR Honda launched their team colours.  As in the past and like Avintia Ducati this year they will have two different sponsors for the two bikes.  Takaaki Nakagami will again be on the Idemnitsu sponsored bike, while Alex Marquez takes over the Givi sponsored bike from Cal Crutchlow.  You would be forgiven if you thought AM73 is sponsored by Smarties.

2021 Repsol Hondas launched.  Could be the 2020 bikes, or perhaps the 2002 ones ....  ;)

Repsol.. by far my favourite, but then again I'm a bit biased.

I'm not sure why everyone wants to have Honda change the Repsol Colours, I think it looks fantastic especially under the lights at Quatar.. .

Who is this " everyone"  who want to change the Repsol colours?  I have yet to meet such a person.

Yes, they're the only colours that still look like a racebike, and not an artist's colour chart or palette.

Look at those LCR satellite bikes, I believe they do short pink, but the rest is all there. :eek7:

Repsol Hondas remind me of the Marlboro Yamahas. Beauties.

To be fair on the colour schemes, Repsol Honda is one of the few teams who only have one major sponsor.  The LCR team bike that AM73 rides share sponsorship with Givi and Castrol and a few smaller ones.  Also, even the Marlboro Yamahas (and like you I loved their looks) went through a few colour scheme design changes over the years.

I have to confess though, this was the most beautiful race bike ever, in my not so humble opinion.

Yes all over the motorsport press. Very sad loss to motorsport and MotoGP. He was a double world champ himself. RIP.
