Five-time MotoGP champion rides a superbike on Japanese serpentine Hakone

A video appeared on the YouTube channel of Red Bull Motorsports, in which the five-time champion of the MotoGP series, Mark Marquez, took part. In the video, he rode a Honda RC213V superbike along Hakone’s Japanese serpentine, which is 15.75 kilometers long.

In the video, Marquez on his way meets legendary personalities and Japanese transport. So, he overtook the scooter Honda Super Cub in 1958, which has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide. At the same time, the scooter was driven by a professional rider Norio Iobe – the winner of the GP500 championship.

In addition, during the climb to Hakon, he met the Nissan Slyline GT-R in 1970, a Hino truck, a Mazda RX-7 coupe, and met the “godfather” of all Japanese tuning culture Isami Amemia.
