Superbike - Davies takes BMW bow in Jerez

Chaz Davies made his debut for BMW onboard a S1000RR during a World Superbike testing session at Jerez.

The Welshman, who won a race in Germany in his maiden WSBK season in 2012, was given a chance to look at the new machinery during a two-day test in southern Spain.

"Good 1st impressions on the BMW in Jerez. Damp patches this morning and now raining so not ideal but good 2 ride again!" the 25-year-old said on his Twitter account.

Davies will line up alongside Marco Melandri next year for BMW Italia, who have taken on the identity of the 'official' S1000RR squad following the demise of the factory team.
