I think the gearbox testing had more to do with his times than anything.

In what is surely an oversight by MotoGP.com staffers, they failed to categorize the riders by scarf wearing and non-scarf wearing.



The test riders (and Aprilia’s Aleix Espargaro) who are on track on Wednesday and Thursday are as follows:
- Jorge Lorenzo (Yamaha)***
- Dani Pedrosa (KTM)
- Stefan Bradl (HRC)
- Michele Pirro (Ducati)
- Sylvain Guintoli (Suzuki)
- Lorenzo Savadori (Aprilia)*
- Bradley Smith (Aprilia)**
- Aleix Espargaro (Aprilia)**
*Only riding Thursday
**Only riding Wednesday
***2015-2020 Scarf Champion


The MotoGP™ riders who are riding superbikes are as follows:
- Maverick Viñales
- Valentino Rossi
- Andrea Dovizioso
- Danilo Petrucci
- Jack Miller
- Francesco Bagnaia
- Johann Zarco
- Tito Rabat
- Takaaki Nakagami
- Alex Marquez
- Pol Espargaro
- Brad Binder
- Miguel Oliveira
- Joan Mir


edit: I'm curious to see what production bikes Oliveira and Binder ride. Having a couple of 1290 Adventures mixing it up with the R1s and Panigales will be interesting. LOL.
- Alex Rins
Added the important details you failed to include.

Don't want to junk up the LeMans thread with such peripheral content. Some highlights from the Portimao practice day on the MotoGP YouTube channel. (embedding not allowed)


I know I'm blaspheming but those R1s and Panigales look damn good compared to the GP bikes. The Suzukis could go either way. Not sure about the Hondas.

The GSXR1000 is hideous by 2020 standards. They need to get away from that single center headlamp.

Lorenzo looks like he chunked up a bit in the mid section....

Borenzo has always been a bit Dad-Bod-ish.

Suzuki is terrible about trickling down their prototype styling to production.

Thankfully, Ducati doesn't even try.
