Max Biaggi has completed the second day of testing at Phillip Island with the fastest time once again, though things proved much closer between the Aprilia and Yamaha riders.
Testing a variety of new parts on the Aprilia RSV-4, Biaggi lowered his best lap from day one to 1min 32.3secs, though both his team-mate Leon Camier and Yamaha's Eugene Laverty were just two tenths adrift.
Marco Melandri suffered a fall from his R1 around the long final bend that leads onto the pit-straight, the Italian hurting a finger, but not seriously. His best lap placed him four tenths off Biaggi.
Camier, meanwhile, also suffered a fall, though it was a later impact with a seagull – one that left him with a swollen arm – that forced him to curtail his day's running.
