MotoGP World Championship leader Marc Marquez did a total of 168 laps aboard his Repsol Honda Team RC213V across the two days of running at the Italian circuit.

Before ending his test, Lorenzo was able to complete 31 laps as he assessed the Honda RC213V around the 4.2km long Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli.
Action resumes at Misano on September 13 when the San Marino GP begins. Both Marc Marquez and Jorge Lorenzo are confident that their findings from the test will allow them to be competitive from FP1 on Friday morning.
