No confirmation of Edwards bike change

16 August 2012

The Forward Racing preview for this weekend's Indianapolis MotoGP makes no reference to a change of machine.

Colin Edwards previously confirmed that a switch from Suter-BMW to the Aprilia CRT bike was possible from Indy, but the team preview doesn't name any bike - with Edwards simply quoted as saying:

“I am excited for this second home race for me, it's always good when family and friends are around. I'm looking forward to having a good weekend here at Indy and that we make the bike work.”

Edwards tested the Gresini FTR-Honda and the Avintia FTR-Kawasaki after Mugello in mid-July, but was back on the Suter-BMW for Laguna Seca.

“I've heard rumours we'll be on an Aprilia at Indianapolis,” Edwards said at the US GP. “That is still not going to able to compete with the [prototype] guys but at least it's the best CRT bike out there. If that happens it's a step forward.”
