It has been announced that Bruce Anstey will ride a Honda RC213V-S at this years 2016 Isle of Man TT.

Clive Padgett has been putting the building blocks in place over the last few months and made the offer to 'the Flying Kiwi' just a few weeks ago.

The £138,000 MotoGP replica has generated excitement in the world of motorcycles for a number of years, and this is arguably one of the biggest tests to date for the bike as it is set to roar around the awe-inspiring 37.73 mile circuit.

Anstey said: 'It has always been a dream of mine to ride a MotoGP bike at the TT and this is as close as I will ever get, Clive is the only person in the world who could put something like this together and if he says it is OK I am with him 100%. He hasn't just pulled it out of the crate and said we are racing it. Clive and the team have done a lot of work to the bike to make it ready for the TT.'

He continued: 'The RCV should be an absolute weapon because it has loads of power but it feels as nimble as a 600. It should be stable too as it's over 2 inches longer than a Fireblade but is still really small and compact. I am really looking forward to seeing how it handles through the quick corners because it will be able to turn so fast.'
