A MotoGP season starts long before the first race or even the first test; riders train, engineers fine-tune bikes and everything must be ready for a team’s launch. Marc Marquez, Joan Mir and the 2023 Honda RC213V stepped in front of the photographers’ lens just ahead of the Sepang Test before traveling to Madrid for the full unveil at Campus Repsol. This was the first in-person launch event for the Repsol Honda Team since 2020.

The countdown continues to the opening race of the year in Portimao, the Portuguese Grand Prix scheduled for March 26. Before then a crucial final test at the same venue on March 11 and 12 awaits Marquez and Mir.
