Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

The road-legal Honda MotoGP bike.

The road-going Honda RC213V-S MotoGP-derived motorbike is no more a wild dream as the Japanese automaker has made it a reality by unveiling a prototype at the EICMA 2014 in Milan, Italy.

Honda says that the RC213V-S has been inspired by, and developed with inputs from many legendary GP riders. The highly exclusive hyperbike is the closest a super rich civilian can get to the thrill of MotoGP racing.

Made of carbon fiber, the road rocket looks exactly (except for the headlamps that are mandatory for a road-legal vehicle) like the championship winning RC213V sans the popular Repsol Honda livery.

Honda has not disclosed the specifications of the RC213V-S but expect the 1,000 cc V4 engine to dish out an unearthly power output of over 200 PS (197.1 bhp).

MotoGP-derived electronics, suspension and gearbox are expected to be onboard to make it one of the most extreme two-wheeled machine on the planet.
