Repsol Honda rider Andrea Dovizioso has expressed his pleasure with the new evolution of Ohlins front forks.

The Italian tested that latest Ohlins racing forks at the post-season test in Valencia, and he said that the new system gives him a great deal of confidence for the next season.

Dovizioso had previously tested prototypes of the Ohlins forks in the August test at Brno, but now he felt they offered more promise with the Honda chassis.

The Honda rider was hampered by a fever so was not able to push 100 per cent, but he was still pleased with the outcome of the test.

"This is not the best way to finish things before the winter break, but with the fever I couldn't do better. Overall though this was a positive test in terms of the work we got through," he said.

Repsol Honda will be using a three-man line-up nest season, with Dovizioso riding alongside Dani Pedrosa and Casey Stoner.
