About Max Biaggi and the 2003 RC211V
One of the most famous teams in MotoGP racing today, the Honda Pons team underwent big changes in 2003 with new sponsorship from tobacco giant Camel and two new riders, Max Biaggi and Tohru Ukawa. Max Biaggi finshed 3rd overall in the Riders Championship in 2003 with 9 top-3 finishes, including victories in Great Britain and Motegi, Japan. Like other Honda Teams, Honda Pons used the RC211V, featuring revolutionary technology such as the powerful V5 4-stroke engine and Hondafs unique unit pro-link suspension. A distinctive feature of Biaggifs bike was the specially altered tank cover and seat cowling which was redesigned to match his small physique. Still riding with Honda Pons in 2004, Biaggi currently sits equal 2nd on the points table.
