Some important changes took place in motor cycle racing during the 2002 season. It was now permissible to drive 990 cc bikes in the newly formed Moto-GP Class. Honda prepared for these new changes with great precision and application and responded to the technical requirements with a quite revolutionary racing machine, the new RC 211V. The Honda has an innovative four stroke, five cylinder engine with 3 cylinders in front and 2 behind. The superiority of this light 145 kg machine delivering 230 bhp and a top speed of 320 kph was proved in the course of the 2002 season. The Honda immediately dominated the 1st Grand Prix World Championship. Apart from the technical superiority that showed in its impressive acceleration (from 0 to 100 kph in 2.2 seconds and from 0 to 200 in 6.0 seconds), this was primarily down to Valentino Rossi. This young and extremely talented rider who had conferred the name the Doctor on himself, ended the 2002 season the victor in no less than 11 out of 17 GP races. Again he battled to win the world championship rider's title. His team mate Tohru Ukawa also won the South Africa Grand Prix and hanks to these professional riders, Honda succeeded in winning the 2002 world championship constructor's title.
