Honda Australia has announced the release of racing-inspired apparel.
Synonymous with the prestige associated with the MotoGP, Honda Australia has announced the release of the iconic GAS Repsol Honda official apparel into Honda dealerships nationwide.
A limited number of styles of this high-end, quality gear has been sourced from GAS Italy to suit the Australian market. The GAS Repsol Honda Sweater (RRP $155), Polo (RRP $110) and Hoodie (RRP $239) should prove to be quite popular amongst Aussie MotoGP fans.
Racing has been an integral part of Honda since the company’s inception, and the Repsol Honda team is held in high regard on a global level. The Honda head office team wanted to offer Honda Repsol fans a piece of the action.
GAS Jeans is a leading premium apparel brand owned and promoted by the Grotto family out of Italy. A long-time sponsor, GAS Jeans is the official clothing partner of the Repsol Honda MotoGP team.
In 2010 the partnership between Repsol and the Honda Racing Corporation will enter its 16th season and it is an association which has made Repsol Honda one of the most recognisable team names in motorcycle racing history. Team mates, Dani Pedrosa and Andrea Dovizioso are riding the latest evolution of Honda’s 800cc four-stroke RC212V race machine.
Honda Australia is currently working on securing the 2011 range, including the launch of the Honda Lifestyle Collection by GAS; a collaboration between Honda Italy and GAS.
Honda Australia is the exclusive distributor of GAS Repsol Honda official apparel to Honda dealerships and will be the exclusive distributor of the Lifestyle range in Australia in 2011.
Also announced last week, emerging from the contemporary lines and sculptured form of the iconic CBR1000RR Fireblade, Honda Australia’s CBR Racing Team range of apparel is set to be a hit with road racing enthusiasts.
This quality apparel is adorned with international race logos, and the Honda Wing logo is featured prominently on this stand-out Racewear.
The CBR1000RR Fireblade logo is unique to CBR Racing Team apparel, appealing to those discerning sport bike riders who like to make a statement about their ride of choice.
The new range which also embodies Honda’s Road Racing efforts, includes a waterproof jacket (RRP $225), a shirt in mens and ladies styles (RRP $85), a fleecie (RRP $85),
a polo (RRP $60) and team cap (RRP $25).
