PICS: Casey Stoner with Repsol Honda

The Australian is tipped to launch a title challenge with Honda in 2011 after moving from Ducati
Honda has taken the wraps off the bike it hopes will claim back the MotoGP World Championship crown in 2011, as well as officially presenting new rider Casey Stoner in Repsol colours.

Following on from Ducati's high-profile unveiling with Valentino Rossi, Repsol Honda has formally revealed its expanded three man line-up of Stoner, Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso.

Even so, it is Stoner that is courting most attention, the Australian integrated into the team's distinctive colours having previously tested aboard a white liveried RC212V at Valencia last year.

Former Ducati man Stoner, who proved instantly quick during that test, is being charged – along with Pedrosa and Dovizioso - with wresting the MotoGP title off Honda's rivals for the first time since Nicky Hayden won for the manufacturer in 2006.

Oh how I wish all the spoilt "baby riders of the trackside" would put their dummies back in their mouths and set back and enjoy the show. Half of you are full or S*!t and the other half are clueless. Motorcyclist at this level should be respected for their abilities and the show they put on for everbody. Anybody who has raced or attend a good track day will know these guys put there lives on the line every time they go out on their bikes. I for one will be sitting back and enjoying the whole season. Don't particularly care who wins as long as the racing is close and exciting
