Former AMA and MotoGP champ Nick Hayden tested the Panigale Superbike today at Mugello. Hayden did around thirty laps on the bike, and is said to have enjoyed it aside from a small harmless crash.
There is no word is Hayden will test the Ducati Superbike again or if he will accept Ducati's offer to pay him handsomely to race the bike in 2014.
Italian media are vibrating today, not just because Hayden rode the Superbike, but because he also uploaded a map of a recent training run he made to the Internet. The route he took was around the area of Noale, Italy in the province of Venice.
Noale is the home of Aprilia.
