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.
