FB01 Returns to Testing in Misano

FB01 Misano

During the last week of April, at the Misano World Circuit – Italy, FB Corse has scheduled various days of testing, to continue the technical development of the FB01, together with the rider Garry McCoy.

Unfortunately, Garry has been a victim of a flue that with the already known symptoms has not allowed him to ride the FB MotoGP bike as soon as he wanted. Misano will be his next chance.

While the doctors have forced McCoy to rest as of late, the staff of Oral Engineering has continued their own work, developing the race bike. The development work has continued thanks also to the simulator, static and dynamics, and the good old dyno.

In the factory, the team has been working on a small technical service on the three-cylinder motorcycle-racing machine. This effort is based on the testing done by the team in Valencia, during the last month.

For the next test, the team will have new transmission and the electronic management for the FB01, which will make its debut in Santa Monica.
