Michele Pirro rode the bike he will compete with in the 2012 MotoGP World Championship for the first time on Friday. The Italian will race for San Carlo Honda Gresini on an FRT-Honda running to CRT regulations and gave the bike a shakedown at Imola.

Pirro tested out the many technical components on the bike as well starting some set-up work and he will have three more days to make progress when the final official pre-season test starts on Friday at Jerez.

“Finally I have had chance to ride the CRT bike I will be riding in this year’s championship”, he commented. “It really was a shakedown designed to find out how everything works. Even after just a few laps we were able to work out what we need to do with the bike in order to be ready for the next test at Jerez. We know we have a lot of work to do but we are very confident.”

“The potential of the bike is very high and if we make the right choices with it we can do well. It is too early to make predictions but we are all very enthusiastic and that will help us take on the challenge.”
