Miguel Oliveira already knows what it is to ride a MotoGP bike. The Portuguese, the first pilot of his country, which wheel of a motorcycle of the category queen, consummated their debut on the back of the KTM RC16 during a private test that KTM Racing has organised in MotorLand Aragon before starting the summer break. The current Moto2 rider shared two days of work in the layout with Spanish pilots owners of the brand in MotoGP, Pol Espargaró and Bradley Smith, as well as with the tester of the brand, Mika Kallio. Perfect reward for his good season in Moto2.
A test with two days of work and more than sixteen hours on the road from Alcañiz has been the framework of the debut of Miguel Oliveira at the controls of a prototype of MotoGP. A test session in which KTM has sought to collect information to improve your RC16 for the second half of the season, but that in the case of Miguel Oliveira was something more special. A gift well deserved after adding four podiums in his second season in Moto2, first next to the Ajo Motorsport team with a KTM motor bike that time placed him third in the championship.
After completing their first miles with the KTM RC16, and with an eye always set on a future, the category queen of the World, Miguel Oliveira wrote: “The goal was not to be very fast, it was a test for me, to enjoy the day. I Had an opportunity that you would like to have any driver in his career at least once. I’m really happy to have had the opportunity to try the KTM RC16, so all in all it has been a test very good. I was able to do a few laps and enjoy a MotoGP bike thanks to KTM“.
