PBM bike for 2nd test at Sepang
The PBM in-house machine’s debut has been postponed to the second test in Sepang, leaving, Paul Bird Motorsport’s Michael Laverty on Yonny Hernandez's second ART bike for the first test in Malaysia on February 5.
The company has lately revealed pictures of its in-house frame, which Michael Laverty will race in the CRT class. The new bike features a conventional aluminium twin spar design chassis with adjustable head pipe and swingarm pivot positions and the Aprilia engine used in the ART machines.
The Irish racer has never raced in MotoGP and in order to get used to the Bridgestone tyres, carbon brakes, and engine characteristics, Michael Laverty will use team mate Yonny Hernandez’s spare ART bike for the upcoming tests.
