Marco Simoncelli tribute CBR1000RRMon, 16 Jul 2012 00:00:00 -0700
At Mugello Honda graciously gifted Simoncelli's father Paolo with Marco's RC212V race bike from last season, along with this tribute-livery Honda CBR1000RR in his honour and memory.
Unveiled in a special and emotional ceremony the Fireblade was designed by Aldo Drudi and was inspired by the memorable Super-Sic colours. The bike will be auctioned off on eBay to raise money for the Marco Simoncelli Foundation.
Mugello marked the first Italian round since Simoncelli was tragically killed at Sepang last year.
