With MotoGP returning to Mugello for the Italian GP, the San Carlo Gresini Honda team is reverting back to its customary white livery scheme, a decision made by both Fausto Gresini and the Simoncelli family. Hoping to invoke some memories of Marco Simoncelli lapping around that famous Italian track, Gresini Racing’s time of mourning for its fallen Italian rider appears to be over as it retires its all-black livery, and has painted Alvaro Bautista’s Honda RC213V in the team’s customary all-while livery for this weekend.
To help raise money for the Marco Simoncelli Foundation, Honda has donated two motorcycles to Paolo Simoncelli, one of which is a Honda CBR1000RR in the white race livery that will be auctioned off to support the charity, while the other is Marco’s own Honda RC212V. The ultimate collector bike? We think so. SuperSic forever.
