Yamaha WorldSBK rider, Toprak Razgatlioglu, has unveiled to Jonathan Rea that he will ride the Yamaha MotoGP factory machine at the end of the season.
The Turkish rider met with Rea at the Barcelona round and exchanged a few words before casually revealed that he received the opportunity to ride the Yamaha YZR-M1.
“I’ll try the M1 at the end of the season. I’ll do it to understand the bike and how it works; maybe I won’t even like it,” said the Turks.
The conversation was recorded on Rea’s YouTube channel, which you can checkout below:
While it may be exciting to see Razgatlioglu onboard the M1, knowing that he already penned a two-year extension to remain in WorldSBK, this could be just an effort to allow him to taste at MotoGP.
Nonetheless, we might see him in the world championship in a couple of years.
