    YOU ARE WRONG kushagra kumar. Motogp switched to 800cc engines in 2007 and was used until 2011- the year in which Stoner won the championship aboard the RC212V(used no.27). From 2012 Motogp raised the capacity to 1000cc and honda’s new bike was christened the RC213V and stoner used the No.1 plate. So this is the No.1 RC213v that stoner rode in 2012. For 2013, the livery and fairing has changed in 2013 a bit but other than that the bike is the same.

  • I corrected you guys last time as well, this is not the 213V, its the 212V. The RC213V is the current version that Dani and Marc ride, it's the 1000cc version. The honda ridded ben Stoner in 2012 (the one in the article) is an 800cc machine not 1000. It's the 212V.
