Toprak Razgatlioglu ‘really enjoying’ BMW M 1000 RR as post-season WorldSBK testing continues

ROKiT BMW Motorrad

Toprak Razgatlioglu says he is ‘really enjoying’ riding the BMW M 1000 RR and feels he is now getting up to speed on his new machine as the post-season WorldSBK testing continued in Spain.

After his first outings at Portimao and Jerez were hampered by poor weather, the ROKiT BMW Motorrad team took the decision to add Valencia to its testing schedule in an effort to give the Turkish rider more crucial winter track time.

Though that test too was also hindered by inclement weather, Razgatlioglu feels just being on track is giving him the chance to get a better handle on the BMW M 1000 RR package he will ride in 2024. 


 “We have not really been lucky over these past days. Also in Valencia, it started to rain a bit on Friday morning and the track was fully wet. But this track dries really fast and we could ride again in the afternoon. 

“We made big improvements, especially on the last three outings, and I am really enjoying the BMW M 1000 RR. Especially with the engine brake and the electronics we made big improvements. 

“With every lap I am still learning my bike but now I know it, I know the grip and the reactions, and this makes me very happy. 

“I am still learning because it is a completely different bike, but we did a very good job, especially on the final day. 

“Thanks to all the guys because everyone really works hard to give me a good bike. I am still adapting to the bike and the guys in the team are learning my riding style, so it is teamwork. 

“But we are not far off, we are coming, the feedback also has been better every day.”
