Ahead of this weekend’s round 2 of the 2014 World Superbike Championship at Aragon, the Hero EBR team wrapped up successful testing of the 1190 RX.

The Erik Buell Racing team tested at Spain’s Alcarras circuit with its riders Aaron Yates and Geoff May, the latter returning following a broken collarbone sustained at the opening WSBK round at Phillip island.

Geoff May (Hero EBR 1190 RX) says: “This test was positive. The new forks and new electronic setup will help us to be more competitive in the races at Aragon. Aragon MotorLand is a fast track and I have never raced there but I am confident we will make a step forward compared to Phillip Island.”

Aaron Yates (Hero EBR 1190 RX: “We tested a lot of different solutions, some that were positive and were a step forward. It was a good test and it helped us to know which direction to move. I am really looking forward to racing in Aragon.”
