Gabor Talmacsi says he will make a decision regarding his immediate motorcycling future in the coming days after completing four days of testing on a Superbike with Pedercini Kawasaki.
The Hungarian racer took the opportunity to ride the ZX-10R in Malaysia alongside the already confirmed Roberto Rolfo, though his time on the bike was limited by both weather and mechanical issues, forcing the team to prioritise its signed rider.
However, while Talmacsi's alternative options appear slim, having seen his Moto2 ride disappear with the withdrawal of the Jack&Jones team, he remains reluctant to make the switch to the series, stating in his own press release that it was merely nice to sample a Superbike for the first time.
Even so, team manager Donato Pedercini, who has offered the ride to Talmacsi, is hopeful a decision either way will be made in the coming days.
“Gabor showed a good potential and he quickly found a good feeling with the new Kawasaki bike. I know it could be an important step for his career and so we'll wait some more days to know about his decision.”
