Isle of Man TT: Michael Rutter confirmed on Honda RCV
Michael Rutter has confirmed he will ride the Honda RCV at this year’s Isle of Man TT.
Rutter made his debut on the MotoGP-derived machine at the Macau Grand Prix last November, finishing second behind Peter Hickman.
The veteran Midlands rider will compete under the Aspire-Ho Bathams Racing banner again in 2019 and will ride a BMW S1000RR in the Superstock class.
Rutter will also team up with John McGuinness to ride for Mugen in the TT Zero race and has signed a deal to ride a KMR Kawasaki in the Lightweight class.
Rutter said: “The RCV is just an awesome machine and certainly the best bike I will probably ever ride.
“It just sounds fantastic and it will be great for the fans to see it at the TT. I ride it for the first time at Macau and its such an awesome bike, so I can’t wait to come to the TT with it.”
