Well, the cat’s finally out of the bag: Ken Roczen is leaving RCH Suzuki after two years and joining Honda HRC for a three-year deal. The announcement was made official this morning. You can read more about it here.
Since the announcement has been made official, we figure there's no better time than now to release a preview of the December ’16 edition of Racer X Illustrated, featuring Roczen on the cover on his new bike.
The digital edition of the issue will be available on October 5 and the print edition will begin shipping to subscribers the day before. It will hit newsstands on October 25.
Inside the issue, we've put together an exhaustive statistical analysis of the Roczen-to-Honda pairing with win and championship stats comparing Ken to Honda today, and Honda today versus the golden era of the big red machine. That info is a magazine exclusive, so you'll have to grab a copy if you want to see it.
You will receive the December ’16 print issue if you subscribe now through October 1. You can also subscribe to the print edition as late as November 8 and still receive the December ’16 digital issue at no additional cost.
