He may not yet officially have a ride for 2012, but Randy De Puniet has been lined up for a test with the Rizla Suzuki team at Valencia. The goal is to get a fresh pair of eyes on the Suzuki GSV-R.
Here is the official Rizla Suzuki Press Release:
Rizla Suzuki has given the opportunity to Randy de Puniet to ride the GSV-R at today’s Valencian post-season test.
De Puniet will join the team this afternoon for a shakedown and comparison test to assess the potential of the GSV-R from another rider’s perspective. Rizla Suzuki has worked with Álvaro Bautista in a single rider team this season, with the exception of a couple of wild-card appearances for John Hopkins, and it is accepted as a good opportunity by the team and the Suzuki factory to get another rider’s feedback during the final test of 2011
