Two day test just completed at Jerez for factory Kawasaki, Yamaha, Honda teams and Kawasaki privateer teams. No Ducati or BMW teams attended. Have to wonder how strict the travel restrictions are in Spain if a test day was allowed.

Garrett Gerloff rode the 2020 and 2021 Yamaha Superbikes at the test (he was on a 2019 bike for the 2020 season). Toprak rode both his 2020 bike and the new 2021 bike. Johnny Rea and Alex Lowes rode the new, not yet public, 2021 ZX-10RR on day 2.

Interesting note: Stefan Bradl rode an HRC MotoGP bike on day one. They are getting their money's worth out of Bradl's contract this year.


Day 1 best times:
Garrett Gerloff (GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Junior Team) 1’39.571s
Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) +0.384s
Toprak Razgatlioglu (PATA YAMAHA WorldSBK Official Team) +0.484s
Alex Lowes (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) +0.545s
Leon Haslam (Team HRC) +0.723s
Alvaro Bautista (Team HRC) +0.771s
Andrea Locatelli (PATA YAMAHA WorldSBK Official Team) +1.008s
Lucas Mahias (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) +1.281s
Isaac Viñales (ORELAC Racing VerdNatura) +2.345s
Kohta Nozane (GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Junior Team) +2.375s
Loris Cresson (OUTDO Kawasaki TPR) +5.237s




Day 2 best times:
Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) 1’38.324s
Toprak Razgatlioglu (PATA YAMAHA WorldSBK Official Team) +0.515s
Alex Lowes (Kawasaki Racing Team WorldSBK) +0.562s
Garrett Gerloff (GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Junior Team) +0.847s
Leon Haslam (Team HRC) +1.527s
Andrea Locatelli (PATA YAMAHA WorldSBK Official Team) +1.553s
Lucas Mahias (Kawasaki Puccetti Racing) +1.870s
Alvaro Bautista (Team HRC) +1.907s
Kohta Nozane (GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Junior Team) +2.345s
Isaac Viñales (ORELAC Racing VerdNatura) +2.568s
Loris Cresson (OUTDO Kawasaki TPR) +4.862s

Pics.

New ZX-10RR. Not sure about the looks even with the always excellent KRT winter test livery.










Our Main in Spain.






Toprak



Stoprak.

Quote from Paul Denning: "@toprak_tr54
was his usual restrained self under braking for turn 6 yesterday. It’s only testing after all."

Apparently, KRT was testing the 2021 bike on day 1 of testing, but with 2020 bodywork. Sneaky

Very sneaky.

Not sure if Dorna will allow embedding for Day 1 test highlights.

First ride on the 2021 ZX-10RR from Johnny Rea's channel.

The winglets/strakes or whatever they are called are beside the lights. Here is the view from behind the fairing.

Tom Sykes has been riding for BMW for the last two seasons and will continue with BMW next season.

Davies is considering offers. He's shown he can still win races, earn podiums and take points away from Rea so he's looking for the right opportunity.
