Honda has confirmed to Crash.net that retired double MotoGP champion Casey Stoner is set to ride some demonstration laps on the new RC213V-S at Catalunya.

Billed as a 'MotoGP machine for the street', the RC213V-S is based upon the RC213V grand prix prototype with which Stoner and then Marc Marquez have each won world titles.

The bike - expected to cost around ?100,000 - will be unveiled in the Catalunya paddock on Thursday, on the eve of the grand prix weekend.
