After years of waiting, Honda has finally announced it has plans to build a road-going version of its MotoGP machine.

It's not entirely clear if it will be a straight copy of the RC213V, as the manufacturer has simply said it will apply MotoGP technologies to a new bike planned for roll-out in 2014.

The announcement was made by Honda chief executive officer Takanobu Ito in a speech outlining the future of the company over the next five years.

What is known about the bike is that it will be expensive and more like a Ducati Desmosedici RR than a replacement for the CBR1000RR Fireblade.

"Since its market introduction in 1987, the RC30 (VFR750R) super sports bike has been loved by a large number of fans," said Ito.

He added that Honda engineers have "begun development of a new super sports bike to which new technologies from MotoGP machines will be applied".

Ito also said Honda will begin production of a new series of large-sized models for commuting that will feature a "torqueful" engine and low seat height.

The firm will begin making this new range in February 2013.
