FIRST LOOK: Team HRC unveil 2024 WorldSBK livery

Iker Lecuona and Xavi Vierge will ride Team HRC's CBR1000RR-R


Team HRC have unveiled their livery for the 2024 WorldSBK season.

The CBR1000RR-R is in Honda's corporate colours, predominantly red and blue.

Iker Lecuona and Xavi Vierge will comprise the team's rider duo.

Lecuona will work with a new crew chief this season, Tom Jojic.

“To be honest, changing crew chief is never really a problem for me," Lecuona said. 

"I think I’m a friendly, open person and so I’m always happy to work with new colleagues and have always had a good relationship with members of my crew. 


"My initial impression is good, and Tom seems to be a very cool guy with a positive, cheerful outlook. 

"So far, so good, and I look forward to developing our relationship throughout the season. The goal is to fight for the podium.

"We reached the podium in our first year but not last year, which was more challenging. 

"So, our first goal is to develop the bike to a level that allows us to fight at the front and fight for the podium. 

"We want to achieve more top three finishes, and then take it from there.”

Vierge said: “Let’s say that we didn’t always live up to our potential in 2023, as performance sometimes depended on the track, the conditions, and whether there was a good level of grip or not. 

"Our potential was great at Indonesia, for example, but perhaps less so at some other tracks, so we want to work hard to achieve a better, more consistent level of performance at different circuits.”
