"LCR Honda’s Stefan Bradl was given the opportunity to test a factory spec Honda RC213V for the day, as the German may be using the machine in the following season with his satellite outfit. He finished the day in fourth with a 1.49’570, just over a second and a half off Pedrosa’s time." ( so if Rea & Bradl were both on factory spec bikes, 1 second difference isnt that bad.
