Home / Bikes / Suzukua 8 Hours: Honda HRC confirms Stoner crash due to throttle issue

stoner_suzuka_crashHonda Racing Corporation has carried out a detailed analysis following the crash of Casey Stoner in last weekend’s Suzuka 8 Hour race.

Checking the throttle, which is a particular specification for Endurance HRC Factory bikes, and different from the standard throttle used on the Honda CBR1000RR road version, a malfunction was discovered related to the throttle cable.

This kind of problem hasn’t arisen before, however, HRC will cease using this throttle specification and will design a new one to be used for Endurance races.

HRC would like to apologise to Casey Stoner and thank him for the effort he made in attending the Suzuka 8 Hour event.
