Voltcom Suzuki World Superbike newboy will make his debut for the team at next week’s official Jerez test and is keen to make full use as it will be his only time on the bike before the winter ban kicks in.
The Frenchman, who continues his duties as a MotoGP test rider in 2015, will be joined by Briton Alex Lowes as he starts his second year with the team.
“Jerez will be a very important test for me. It is my first time on the Crescent GSX-R1000 and our only test before the winter break. I am hoping for good weather to allow us to work a lot, I am aiming to do everything I can to learn the bike and work with the team to give as much information as I can to build the best bike ready to continue development in January,” said De Puniet.
“I am really excited for next year, my concrete goal is to be ready for Phillip Island and this test is my first step to achieving that.”
