What new tech was on show at the Jerez Test?

A fascinating two days of track time at the Official Jerez Test kicked off the 2022 season with plenty of technical innovations on display. The engine, chassis, exhausts, seat and tail unit, aero package, fairings are all new and, for the first time, we saw Honda equip a bike with a mass damper at the back. On the bike which this bike is based upon, this is very different. With eight bikes on the grid in 2022, Ducati were also very busy over the two days testing. Elsewhere, Ducati continued work on a fairing seen at the Misano Test as well as a different air intake and aero package. Like Ducati, Aprilia didn’t bring their 2022 bike to Jerez but they did have a new exhaust to test. Over at KTM, the biggest difference on the RC16 was a huge new aero package first seen at Misano.
