Fresh from watching the 16th round of MotoGP, Shell Advance Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix, I bought these latest 2011 1/18 collection of Maisto:

Marlboro Ducati Team: Valentino Rossi 46, Nicky Hayden 69
Factory Yamaha Team: Jorge Lorenzo 1, Ben Spies 11

















In memory of Marco Simoncelli, I also bought 2008-2009 San Carlo Honda Gresini bikes. But no release yet from Maisto of the team's 2010 and 2011 models. Hope they would launch one soon.

I also had a picture with Marco Simonncelli an hour ago before he left us all. He will be missed. Thank you Marco for letting me meet you and talk to you before you ride to the heaven.

TFL,

where did you find these?? they dont seem to be available anywhere here in the US... we used to get EVERY ONE of the motogp bikes on the store shelves of a few different places, now NO ONE sells them and you can barely find the street bikes anymore too.. i had to get the that rossi bike from a cousin that went to italy!! he actually bought me 3 of them.. one for the display case, 2 for the vault!! lol... would LOVEEEEEE to get my hands on the yamaha team bikes... ben spies is my boy! i would pass out cold on the floor if i ever heard rumors of maisto (or anyone) making the 50th anniversary bikes in the red/white livery... THAT would be sick!

I bought some of them in Malaysia and some in Singapore. Hope you would get yours soon mate, the quality is fantastic and I'm impressed of the details as the Ducatis are slim in right proportions and the fluoroscent red is same as the real bikes. I would also love to have the Yamaha's 50th Anniversary white/red livery, and I do hope that Maisto would release 2011 Repsol Hondas and Gresini bikes in honour of Marco Simonchelli...

First, those are very nice, thanks for posting pics!

Secondly, I too have not seen hide nor hair of any of these here in the States. I was in Korea a few weeks ago but didn't see any toy stores or anyplace else that might carry them. I don't get to Europe like I used to but it is a shame that they aren't available like they were here. I am caught up to last year, but I think these are going to be a challenge!

Thirdly, I am a little disappointed that Maisto is only offering two teams. Where's the Repsol Honda squad? With all the teams running there year, you'd think there would be more done.

Lastly, RIP Marco. The sport will never be the same without you!

I really hope someone brings out Super Sic's 2011 Gresini Honda because i'm looking to get that model too. NewRay made the 2010 Gresini Honda bikes but i've no idea what the detail is like in comparison to the Maisto bikes. I assume the Maisto bikes are better.

I'm still affected by Simoncelli's death too, I wanted to see him World Champion.

Great pics! I have lots of catching up to do with my Maisto MotoGP bikes. I'm also sad to hear that they are hard to find here in the US.

I'm glad you were fortunate to meet and take a picture of Marco before he passed.

Ciao e grazie, Marco!

Any news that maisto would release 2011 Respol Honda?
How about 2011 Gresini Honda....
There are no news yet on any of the 2011 Repsol Honda; and the 2010 and 2011 Gresini Honda bikes.

Although Maisto claimed they the released this November a 1:18 BMW S1000RR

I too am still shocked by Marco's death, but we'll never forget him that's for sure.

But those are some nice models, I hope they make a retro Yamaha one.

Found this on Maisto's site:

"For the Repsol bikes you're in luck.
2010 Honda RC212V Repsol: #31575 (choose Dani Pedrosa or Andrea Dovizioso)
2011 Honda RC212V Repsol: #31184 (choose Dani Pedrosa or Andrea Dovizioso)

Sorry but we won't be making the Honda Gresini Team bikes."

http://www.maisto.co...part-1&catid=20

No idea if this is official or not but it sounds like they wont be releasing the 2011 Gresini bikes which would be a shame...and only Dovi and Pedrosa Repsol bikes. No stoner?
