We have competed in MotoGP together with TEAM SAN CARLO HONDA GRESINI in the past, so it is heartening to be able to aim for the ultimate finish line together with our trusted friends. Showa Suspension will be used in the all of the race classes (MotoGP, the Moto2, CRT, and in the Moto3) so in addition to our expectations, we are also feeling a keen sense of responsibility. With Showa’s latest technologies being used in all the classes, we will continue to strive in the hopes of contributing to a championship win for the team.”
