This is the first official photo session of the 2017 world champion MotoGP in the class prototype Casey Stoner, with the number 1 on his new RC213V with engine capacity of 2017 cubic meters. The motorcycle was introduced in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Last year was very successful for the team and HRC Casey in particular. And while this year's team, two pilots left (Andrea Dovizioso joined the CRT team), executive vice president of HRC, Mr. Nakamoto said: "We have full confidence in the professionalism of our riders Casey Stoner and Dani Pedrosa, and we give them all our technical and human support. "
The first test before the season begins in Sepang with Casey and Dani, in fact will go on the same bike on which they finished last year's stage in Valencia, but in fairness it must be said that small changes still were made at the request of pilots. Visiting Malaysian track was a good time to visit the place of death of Marco Simoncelli, pay their respects to a minute of silence.
