Video: Honda test at Almeria

Watch our video of the Honda World Superbike temas testing their new 2008 WSB bikes at Almeria.

The Hannspree Ten Kate Honda team finished the first test onboard the brand new 2008 specification Honda CBR1000RR at the top of the time sheets in Almeria last week.

WSB rookies Carlos Checa and Ryuichi Kiyonari set identical lap times on the final day and left the Spanish circuit convinced of the potential of the new machine.

Due to the late arrival of the new bikes, which the team only received on the 12th December the three days in Almeria will be the team’s one and only test before heading out for Free Practice for the Qatar race on 21st February.

Testing alongside the Ten Kate was the Paul Bird Honda team with Gregorio Lavilla on board.
