Valencia Moto3 Test: Enea Bastianini makes Honda debut

"The Honda is a completely different bike" - Enea Bastianini.
Runaway Moto3 rookie of the year Enea Bastianini made his Honda debut during the start of unofficial testing at Valencia on Tuesday.

The 16-year-old Italian took KTM machinery to three podiums this season and is staying with Gresini for its Honda return in 2015.

“I really enjoyed this first day of testing!” said Bastianini, who completed 53 laps. “The Honda is a completely different bike from the one I used to ride, but today we could begin to get acquainted to it, doing the many kilometers and making a very good job.

“In particular, I immediately liked the behaviour of the chassis; on this first day we tried to find the feeling with the bike, then we have already started to make some changes to the set-up to adapt the bike to my needs. Tomorrow we will continue in this direction.”

Gresini was one of many Moto3 teams not to release a lap time, with Red Bull KTM's Karel Hanika fastest of those that did. Testing continues on Tuesday.
