It was the second year running for the teamís official presentation to be held in Indonesia, but this time it was a pit stop for Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa before heading to Australia for the second MotoGP test of 2016.

The Repsol Honda Team unveiled the new RC213V that it will campaign during the 2016 MotoGP World Championship at the Sentul International Circuit in Indonesia. Although there is yet to be a MotoGP round in Indonesia (speculation is 2018), the passion for MotoGP is high and Indonesian fans stuck it out in poor weather to see Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa at the teamís official unveiling.
