Honda (UK) and its official Buildbase Honda off-road racing team – managed by three-times world champion Dave Thorpe – have teamed up to create an exclusive offer for young motocross competitors with their purchase of a new Honda CRF150RB.
Riders who purchase a new Honda CRF150RB will be automatically entitled to a range of exclusive benefits and have the opportunity to progress their riding skills and confidence, with guidance and support from Dave Thorpe and the Buildbase Honda team, at selected race meetings within the Red Bull Pro National series in the UK.
On event, chief engineers and mechanical staff from the team will be on hand to provide the young Honda competitors with technical support and track analysis, as well as aide with race preparation of their CRF150RB machines competing in the supporting youth classes.
Team Manager, and multiple world champion, Dave Thorpe, will also be on hand to offer expert advice and detailed rider tuition to budding racers and potential British and World champions of the future. At each event, riders will be invited on a track walk with Dave Thorpe and the Buildbase Honda MX riders. They will also be given a private briefing in the Buildbase Honda team truck, by Thorpe himself, on race day.
The Honda CRF150RB is the perfect bike on which develop riding skills and hone racing talent. Riding the four-stroke 150cc machine is also the ideal preparation for those looking to take the step up to bigger capacity four-stroke machines in MX2 and MX1. Now with added support from one of the best teams in the British Championship paddock and personal mentoring from one of the true legends of the sport in Dave Thorpe, owning a Honda CRF150RB means experiencing the complete competitive package and becoming part of the wider Honda team.
For 2012 the CRF150RB is further improved with a new cylinder head with optimised combustion chamber shape and new camshaft for stronger power, torque and drivability across a wide rev range. It also benefits from revised suspension settings with the 37mm inverted Showa front fork and Pro-Link rear suspension system, delivering heightened control and accurate feedback.
