At the Adelaide hairpin, turn five, Razgatlioglu took the lead but was wide into the 180, allowing Rea to take the lead back.
The fight for fourth place was headed by Andrea Locatelli and Michael van der Mark with the Ducatis of Chaz Davies and Michael Ruben Rinaldi on his tail, but after tyre-smoking contact on the straight with Locatelli, Van der Mark swerved and had to avoid pit boards and dropped to seventh place, climbing to sixth after a few turns. Razgatlioglu tried to pass Rea, but Rea slammed the door into turn five.
Seven laps down, Jonathan Rea, Toprak Razgatlioglu and Scott Redding were three seconds clear of the fight for fourth place between Andrea Locatelli, Chaz Davies and Michael Van der Mark. Jonathan Rea set the fastest lap.
At the end of lap nine, Scott Redding lost touch from the leading duo, with a second gap to Toprak Razgatlioglu and Jonathan Rea. Once again, Rea and Razgatlioglu charged to turn five with the Yamaha on the inside line taking the lead. Into the Imola chicane, Jonathan Rea forced his way under Toprak Razgatlioglu and held his line through the chicane to hold the lead. Turn five of lap eleven, Razgatlioglu once again took the inside line, braking from a way back, as Rea leant his Kawasaki on the Yamaha as the pair cornered glued together. Razgatlioglu led throughout lap twelve, but the pair were still under only two tenths of a second apart.
Lap thirteen and Jonathan Rea remained in Toprak Razgatlioglu's clean air as Scott Redding watched the fight from over a second and a half behind, ending lap thirteen two seconds behind the quality slap fight for the win.
In fourth place, three seconds from Redding, Andrea Locatelli was over a second clear of Chaz Davies with Alvaro Bautista a further second behind with the best Michael fight on his tale, contested between Michael Ruben Rinaldi and Michael van der Mark.
Jonathan Rea charged into turn five way too fast, missing the apex but briefly holding the lead until Toprak Razgatlioglu took it back on the better line.
Five laps remaining, Razgatlioglu still had Rea for company as the pair were over four seconds clear of Scott Redding with Andrea Locatelli three further seconds behind. Turn five once again was the scene of a close call, with Rea unable to pass. Four laps remained and they were still on close quarters.
At the start of lap nineteen, Toprak Razgatlioglu finally shook off Jonathan Rea, with Razgatlioglu pulling out a one second gap as Rea looked like he settled for second place as Rea's tyres looked to be a little more spent. Lap nineteen, Razgatlioglu hammered home his advantage with a personal best lap, two seconds ahead of Rea. Scott Redding in third place was a comfortable two and a half seconds clear of Andrea Locatelli and Chaz Davies.
At the opening of the last lap, Toprak Razgatlioglu led by almost three seconds over Jonathan Rea with Scott Redding over five seconds further back and the podium was settled. Chaz Davies was closing on Andrea Locatelli as the only fight that looked unsettled o the last lap.
