Fernando Alonso has tested a Honda MotoGP machine at the Japanese manufacturer’s ‘Thanks Day’ at Motegi.

The McLaren Formula 1 driver jumped aboard a Honda RC213V Open class specification bike for a demonstration run at the MotoGP Japanese Grand Prix venue.

Alonso was joined at the event by Honda’s MotoGP riders Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa and former F1 driver Takuma Sato.

Alongside his run on two wheels, the double world champion completed laps behind the wheel of a McLaren Honda MP4-6 campaigned by Ayrton Senna and Gerhard Berger in the 1991 F1 world championship.
