Despite crashing twice over the two days of testing the 2016 Honda RC213V in Valencia, Marquez finishes first with a time of 1:31.367. The testing marks the official start of the 2016 season and includes technical changes such as a Spec ECU that all teams must use; Michelin taking over as the sole tyre supplier; a fuel limit of 22 litres for all and the use of seven engines for the year, plus the bikes now have to weigh a maximum of 157kg compared to 158kg in 2015. Wheel diameter has also been increased by half an inch to 17” by Michelin, to bring them more inline with road bikes.
