Sepang MotoGP Shakedown test times - Day 2 (FINAL)

Lap times from Saturday's second day of the Sepang MotoGP Shakedown test.

The second day of the three-day Sepang MotoGP Shakedown test took place at the Malaysian circuit on Saturday, when Pol Espargaro set the fastest lap time.

KTM race riders Espargaro, Johann Zarco, Hafizh Syahrin and Miguel Oliveira joined MotoGP test riders Stefan Bradl (Honda), Michele Pirro (Ducati), Sylvain Guintoli (Suzuki), Takuya Tsuda (Suzuki), Mika Kallio (KTM), Bradley Smith (Aprilia) and Katsuyuki Nakasuga (Yamaha) on track, alongside some Japanese Superbike teams.

Nakasuga had two M1s at his disposal, while fellow Yamaha test rider Jonas Folger will ride on Sunday, when Aprilia race riders Andrea Iannone and Aleix Espargaro are also due to test.

KTM and Aprilia MotoGP race riders are allowed to take part as their factories benefit from technical concessions, including extra private testing.

The Official Sepang test (for all race and test riders) will be held from February 6-8.
