During the two-day Supported Test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, teams and manufacturers from the MOTUL Superbike World Championship were bringing different items to try as they looked to refine their package ahead of the new season. Yamaha were no exception to this rule as they look to build on a strong, race-winning campaign in 2020 for the Pata Yamaha with BRIXX WorldSBK outfit and give GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team riders the best chance in the Championship too. At the Pata Yamaha outfit, Toprak Razgatlioglu and Andrea Locatelli were trying out new fairings on their YZF R1 and new brake calipers from Brembo as well as an update engine. For GRT Yamaha duo teammate Garrett Gerloff and Kohta Nozane, they were able to try out the new fairing as well. Check out all the different components in the gallery at the top of this article!
