LCR presents the official Hondas of Alex Márquez and Nakagami

With the arrival of Alex Márquez last year from the Repsol team and the consolidation of Takaaki Nakagami, Luccio Cecchinello ‘s structure will repeat this course a line-up of riders who have a direct contract with the Japanese manufacturer, in addition to two identical prototypes, at least at the start of the season, to that of the factory drivers, Marc Márquez and Pol Espargaró, presented on Tuesday.

For purely commercial reasons, Alex and Taka ‘s bikes are painted in different colors and sponsors, and for this reason they have been presented separately through the team’s social networks.

For the youngest of the Márquez brothers, what is about to begin is his third season in the premier class after his debut in 2020 with the official Honda team.

Then, in 2021, he moved to the LCR with a two-year contract with the official brand, although he suffered a difficult season with the RC213V, below his performance from the previous year, in which he had achieved two podium finishes, finishing 16th in the championship. of drivers behind his teammate Takaaki Nakagami. Fourth place at the Algarve Grand Prix was his best result.

Márquez’s bike in the LCR continues to wear the Givi and Castrol livery, with colors similar to those he rode last year.

The LCR team made its MotoGP debut in 2006 with the backing of Honda and Casey Stoner as rider, before the Australian left for Ducati to become world champion the following year.

The Monaco-based team owes much of its success to Cal Crutchlow, who won two races in 2016, the Czech and Australian GPs, and also the 2018 Argentine GP.

However, LCR has been mired in a podium drought since the 2019 season, when a second place also by Crutchlow in Australia was his last top three finish.

Nakagami’s livery for 2022 was unveiled at 12 noon, an hour and a half after #73. And, as expected, it is very different from Alex Marquez’s due to a difference in the main sponsor, the Japanese brand Idemitsu .

In addition to the large logo of his sponsor, the Japanese’s colors are mainly white, red and black.
