LCR Honda working on a CRT bike

At a quick glance this may look like Toni Elias’ 2011 RC 212V Honda, but it isn’t underneath the fairing.
This is Lucio Cecchinello’s CRT bike that could take part in the 2012 Moto1 championship.
The bike is 70% complete and Max Temporali (Mediaset Premium’s MotoGP commentator) took it out for a spin at the Castelletto di Branduzzo circuit.

The bike is currently equipped with a CBR1000RR engine and the standard chassis (which should have to go based on the CRT rules) and just the front end says Temporali, between last year’s set of Öhlins forks, Brembo carbon fibre brakes and Marchesini wheels is worth 50,000 euros and the team is currently working on a longer swingarm and complete bike should go for about €150.

The FIM and Dorna should release the names of the CRT teams tomorrow.
