Hayden set for mid-November test

Nicky Hayden will make his first appearance for the Honda World Superbike team at a test on November 16.

The American has made the switch from MotoGP to WSBK ahead of the 2016 campaign, having signed with Honda Racing.

Hayden is not yet available to do any testing as the MotoGP season only comes to an end next weekend, and so the 34-year-old will have to wait until November 16-17 to get his first taste of the CBR1000RR.

Hayden leaves MotoGP after 13 seasons in the premier class, having claimed the World Championship in 2006. The Kentucky Kid has turned out in WSBK before, having taken part in two races in the 2002 before moving across to MotoGP.
