Bike India - - SPORT -

THIS IS go­ing To BE a SPE­CIAL YEAR for honda Mo­tor­cy­cles & Scoot­ers inda (HMSI) in the na­tional rac­ing scene. The com­pany will start a new one-make se­ries wherein rid­ers will com­pete on the nSF 250R, a proper rac­ing ma­chine. This will al­low honda to hand-pick tal­ented young rac­ers who will then grad­u­ate to in­ter­na­tional cham­pi­onships such as the Thai Tal­ent cup and asia Road Rac­ing cham­pi­onship. one may re­call that the four Moto2 and Moto3 rid­ers had also started out in smaller classes and, with honda’s help, are to­day rac­ing at the pin­na­cle of mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing: the FIM Moto2 and Moto3 cham­pi­onship.

in­di­vid­u­als who will make it to these cham­pi­onships will also get an op­por­tu­nity to com­pete, based on their per­for­mance, in well-known races such as the Suzuki Eight hours and all Ja­pan Road Race cham­pi­onship. From there the tal­ent will have the op­por­tu­nity to move up to Euro­pean cham­pi­onships like FIM CEV, which is a step­ping stone to Moto3.

honda Rac­ing in­dia are de­ter­mined to give home­grown tal­ent a chance to rep­re­sent HMSI and in­dia on the global stage and the 2019 rac­ing sea­son in in­dia will mark the be­gin­ning of this ini­tia­tive.
