Brogan has high hopes for Honda return

“My 'Blade will be close to the specification of the HM Plant Honda machines… my intention is to try and win the BSB Championship,” – Steve Brogan.
Steve Brogan's 2011 Jentin Honda will be 'close' to the official HM Plant Honda team in terms of specification, handing the Liverpudlian a fighting chance of achieving his BSB title dream.

Brogan won the 2008 British Superstock title with HM Plant Honda and, after being crowned Evo-class BSB champion on a BMW last year, Brogan and Jentin Racing are switching to CBRs for a main BSB-class assault in 2011.

“I've enjoyed the last few seasons in the BSB support classes but, have always had the ambition to compete in the main BSB Championship and ultimately win the title,” said Brogan.

“I'm certainly ready for the challenge and with the opportunity with the Jentin Racing team, who I've now got a great working relationship with, for me riding the Honda Fireblade and working with Honda again is the best package at this time to try and go out and achieve my aim.

“The Fireblade's results last year – with a 1-2 in the championship – speak for themselves and my 'Blade for 2011 will be close to the specification of the HM Plant Honda machines.

“I've never ridden a bike with electronics on before so having the insight into that from the team at Honda will be a great support for me and Jentin Racing, who run a really close knit and professional team.

“I can't thank Honda UK enough for their support this coming season and the faith they are showing in me with my return to Honda.

“I now just have to do myself, the team, our sponsors, the Fireblade and Honda proud in all respects which is as much my intention as going out there to try and win the BSB Championship.”

The 2011 BSB series kicks-off on Easter weekend, 23-25 April, at Brands Hatch in Kent.

Shane Byrne and defending champion Ryuichi Kiyonari will ride for Honda UK's official HM Plant team in 2011.

louth looney your right i mean rob mac said they had the same bikes as airwaves but when you got into it it was only about 50% of what the airwaves bike actually was i mean it may be hm plant spec but i doubt it will be 100% the same spec as the winning bikes from last year. i mean they might not be that far off but they wont be the same plus even if they were the same i still think brogie will struggle to get top results on it, there's better riders

The HM Plant Hondas used in 2010 were built in louth by a very capable and professional team.and were not full factory bikes.The bikes were good for sure but Kiyo and Josh rode the wheels off them to get results. Just because you have got the same machinery as HM plant it will not automatically make you a winner. With Brogan riding a HM Plant spec bike he will have no excuses as we know the bike is a proven winner in the right hands.
