MotoGP™ is back as Misano hosts private test

Ducati, Suzuki, KTM and Aprilia are at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli for three days of long-awaited track action

MotoGP™ riders and teams are lighting up the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli for the next three days as Ducati Team, Team Suzuki Ecstar, Red Bull KTM Factory Racing, Red Bull KTM Tech 3 and Aprilia Racing Team Gresini get back into the swing of things.

Michele Pirro is on hand to dust the cobwebs off the GP20 as the Italian lays down the rubber on familiar territory, with Suzuki test guru Sylvain Guintoli getting his hands back on the GSX-RR. Over at KTM, all four of their premier class stars will be getting back in the groove – factory riders Pol Espargaro and Brad Binder joined by Tech 3’s Miguel Oliveira and Iker Lecuona.

 

Along with KTM, Aprilia had a very promising 2020 preseason campaign. Aleix Espargaro and test rider Bradley Smith will be on hand to try and pick up where they left off in Qatar, with Smith returning to Misano having completed a day and a half at the venue a few days ago.
