Marquez and Pedrosa test 2017 Honda MotoGP engine
Following a successful race weekend at Misano, the Repsol Honda Team had remained at the circuit to complete a one-day private test on Monday, but decided to reschedule the session for Tuesday as Monday’s early morning downpour had left the track damp and useless until midday.
Taking advantage of ideal conditions on Tuesday, Marc Marquez and Dani Pedrosa had a first taste of next season’s engine evolution and also continued to work on the settings of their RC213V machines in view of the season’s crucial final phase.
Having completed a busy period that included back-to-back GPs and this test, Marquez and Pedrosa will now have a weekend off before heading to their third GP on home soil in Aragon on September 25.
Unfortunately, as you would expect, neither Marquez, Pedrosa, or HRC made any comment about the performance of the new engine during the test.
