Schumacher tests Ducati and Yamaha superbikes

Ex-F1 God gets his hands on Bayliss' title-winning machine

SEVEN-TIME Formula 1 King Michael Schumacher was invited to ride a couple of WSB machines after the final round of the series at Portimao, Portugal.

The German ace, who's recently taken a shine to motorcycle racing, tested newly-crowned WSB champ Troy Bayliss' Ducati 1098, as well as Noriyuki Haga's 200bhp R1.

Schumacher has been involved in the development of BMW's new WSB contender, the S1000 RR superbike.
