Spanish manager Jorge ‘Aspar’ Martinez according to Spanish websiteAS, after testing five different bikes during the Valencia tests in December has narrowed down his choice for his Moto2 team between the German made Kalex and the RSV for World Champions Mike Di Meglio (2008) and Julian Simon (2009).
Martinez told AS : The decision will depend on the technical conditions, and Kalex has their close association with the Pons team going against them,” Martinez explained.
“In contrast, RSV is just a manufacturer who can get fully involved with our team.
” While Salvatore Giorlandino (project leader) said : “Martinez’s riders tested the bike at Valencia and were satisfied.
We’re negotiating with Martinez as we are with Boscoscuro (another team that was supposed to use Aprilia) and other teams.
