Casey Stoner Testing The Honda RC213V At Motegi – Video
Casey Stoner made a surprise return to MotoGP recently, participating in a two-day test with former employer, Honda. Check out the video below to see the former champ in action. The test took place at the Honda-owned Motegi circuit, where Stoner rode the 2013 model in the morning session before switching to 2014 machinery — the same spec bikes Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez currently pilot — in the afternoon.

The shortened schedule meant Stoner wasn’t able to test Honda’s 2014 Production Racer, but HRC head Shuhei Nakamoto promises Stoner will get a chance to try it in the future.
Lap times weren’t released, but we’ll assume Casey hasn’t lost much, if any, speed since his switch to four wheels at the end of last year.
