October 31st, 2014 was probably the day we motorcycle fanatics were waiting for a long long time. Honda finally trademarked the name "RC213V-S" in European Union. The long-awaited street-legal replica of Honda's Moto GP racer may finally be approaching with this development. 

Honda Chief Executive Officer Takanobu Ito originally confirmed plans to produce a new super sportsbike derived from its Moto GP machine RC213V prototype in 2012 but we haven’t heard a peep from the manufacturer since then.

Not until the new trademark filing, that is. Filed with the EU’s Office for the Office Harmonzation for the Internal Market, the trademark application offers few details, except saying it will be used for “motorcycles; vehicles; apparatus for locomotion by land, air or water; and parts and fittings for the above-mentioned goods in this class”.

While the description may be vague, the name itself is fairly obvious, with the “S” likely signifying the street version of the RC213V prototype. Honda first introduced the RC213V in 2012 MotoGP season. Since then, the 1000cc V-4 racebike has won 34 of 53 races split between the legendary Casey Stoner, incredible Dani Pedrosa and the new Prodigy and 2 time reigning World Champion Marc Marquez. 

Recently we did talked about the expected arrival of the Honda V4 at EICMA 2014.

The Mythical Honda V4 finally arriving?
