Alex Lowes and Kawasaki continued their preparations for the 2021 Global Superbike campaign earlier this week with a two-day test at MotorLand Aragon.
The two-day outing in Teruel was the third pre-season test of 2021 for Lowes after Jerez and Barcelona.
The British rider completed 73 laps in Aragon, and with another test at the Spanish venue on May 4-5, Lowes will certainly be delighted to feel “ much better ” with his shoulder compared to Barcelona’s official test.
“Unfortunately the second day it was raining so we have English weather in Spain! At one point it seemed to be raining both days but luckily yesterday I did 73 laps and my shoulder went down. felt much better than in the last Montmelo tests “added Lowes.
“It’s really positive. On the bike side, we worked on the corner exit electronics and the chassis settings, trying to improve my feeling in this area.
“It’s the same work we did in Jerez and Montmelo, and we continued this same testing plan in Aragon; it was really positive. I think it’s the best I’ve felt since my first released on the Ninja ZX-10RR. ”
Last season’s double header at Aragon saw Lowes win three sixth places, a fifth and a ninth after retiring from the opening race.
The final pre-season test for defending champions Kawasaki will see Lowes joined once again by teammate Jonathan Rea, while Yamaha will also be on track with Andrea Locatelli and Toprak Razgatlioglu ahead of the season opener on the 21st and 23rd. may.
