MotoGP™ teams set for Monday Brno test

Latest innovations and 2020 spec machines are likely to make an appearance

On Monday at the Automotodrom Brno, the MotoGP™ teams will be back on track testing their latest innovations and in some cases, 2020 spec machinery.

One of those teams is Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP, who will hand a 2020 YZR-M1 to the capable hands of Maverick Viñales and Valentino Rossi as we hope to get an early indication of how the Iwata factory are shaping up for next season.

Repsol Honda Team were busy trying some things for 2020 back at the Barcelona test, but Marquez’ and Honda’s main aim for the Brno test is to confirm their preferred chassis. The reigning World Champion will be alone in the Repsol Honda box, with Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda Castrol) and Takaaki Nakagami (LCR Honda Idemitsu) making it three HRC bikes on circuit.

At Ducati Team, likewise for Team Suzuki Ecstar, new aerodynamic packages have made an appearance this weekend. Continued tests of those are to be expected as they gain more vital mileage and data on Monday, with the Bologna factory continuing to try and improve their main weakness: turning.

Development continues on all fronts for Red Bull KTM Factory Racing but they will be without test riders Dani Pedrosa and Mika Kallio, who were testing in Brno during the summer break. In terms of Aprilia Racing Team Gresini, something “very different is planned” according to Technical Manager Romano Albesiano. Will we see an early 2020 Aprilia on track?

The riders will be on track between 10:00-18:00 local time on Monday, and you can follow the action via Live Timing. At the end of the day, a report and videos will be available to get the low down on what happened right here on
