Miller says he's getting faster and faster

Jack Miller says he's getting 'faster and faster' after his second taste of a MotoGP bike last week as he tested the latest spec production Honda in Malaysia.

After winning the final Moto3 race of 2013 in Valencia, Miller jumped from his 60bhp KTM RC250R onto the 230bhp Honda RCV1000R production racer Scott Redding rode this season.

Having spent just two days on the bike in Spain, Honda flew the Aussie to Sepang for his first spin on the updated, more powerful RC213V-RS production racer.

Miller experienced his first MotoGP crash on the third and final day, suffering a small lowside on Friday morning. Over the three days he improved his fastest lap by over two seconds, setting a time of 2’02.9 on his final run that would have placed him 18th on the grid for this year’s race.

“In general I was really happy with how the bike went, we made more improvements and every time I get on it I feel more and more comfortable and that means I’m getting faster and faster” Miller said. “I can’t thank the team enough for their hand work and Honda for their support, they’re all teaching me really well how to ride in MotoGP.”

“We had a small crash in the morning, but it was nothing serious and there was no real damage to the bike as it was low speed carrying a bit too much lean angle over a couple of bumps. All in all, I would say I’m very happy how the bike worked during the test. It has been positive.

“I’m looking forward to the off-season now and I’ll be training hard and getting my body in the physical condition needed for MotoGP. We managed a long run today and whilst it was really hard, my body stood up to it, so I look forward to coming back even stronger in February”.

Miller will next test with the CWM LCR Honda team at the traditional pre-season tests in Malaysia early next year.
