Rea of hope in new year
Jonathan Rea may well have remained at the Dutch-based Ten Kate Honda team for the 2011 World Superbike season, but their all-new Castrol Honda livery is a throwback to the days of John Kocinski and Colin Edwards.

Closer to home, many fans will remember Phillip McCallen and the late great Joey Dunlop donning the famous green, red and white livery, which has remained virtually the same on the contemporary Ten Kate Honda machinery of 2011 — offering a vibrant retro feel, that Jonathan said, “he is pretty pumped about”.
