About the Honda Pons NSR500 '01
Tamiya introduces a 1/12 scale model of the bike that reclaimed the 2001 Road Race World Grand Prix 500cc Class Championship Title. At this event, 4 teams entered a total of 6 NSR500 '01 machines employing powerful 2 cycle V4 engines. 125cc and 250cc Class World Championship Title holder Loris Capirossi and veteran rider Alex Barros were on the Pons Honda team line-up. Capirossi turned heads with a miraculously fast lap time, earning the pole-position from the opening race, the Japan GP. Under the heavy rain of the 5th race, the Italian GP, these two talented NSR500 riders pulled off a brilliant one-two finish, making themselves favorites for the season championship.
