Four-time MotoGP world champion Marc Marquez finished the 2017 season with 298 points. That’s 37 points ahead of runner-up Andrea Dovizioso and a full 90 ahead of MotoGP legend Valentino Rossi.
Only 25, Marquez is also Tissot’s newly crowned brand ambassador, joining others such as fellow Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo and Swiss Thomas Luthi. He wears the T-Race Marc Marquez 2018 limited edition, which comes with a black and orange livery like his team colours. Delivered in a helmet-shaped presentation box, this sporty model has a 43mm case in black PVD-coated steel and a glass case back printed with his initials and race number.
Marquez started out in 2010 in the 125cc category, which he won, and then went on to Moto2 in 2012 which he also won. He took the MotoGP world championship almost consecutively in 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017. An injury in 2015 prevented him from taking the title that year.
The bike he rides is a Honda RC213V which has a liquid-cooled four-stroke DOHC 4 valve V-4 1,000cc engine, with a maximum speed of approximately 360km/h.
Other than the T-Race Marc Marquez 2018, biking fanatics can also look at the black and rose gold PVD T-Race MotoGP 2018 limited edition and the T-Race MotoGP special edition decked in black and red. Check out the pieces here.
