Italian Motorcycle Manufacturer Hires Italian Rider For MotoGP Team

Ever notice that with Aprilia it's always "next year"?

Marco Bezzecchi has signed a multiple-year contract to race with Aprilia Racing beginning from 2025. This is an important step for the manufacturer from Noale, with a full-time Italian rider once again in the top class, after Lorenzo Savadori’s MotoGP début in 2020.

The return of an Italian rider is a significant step for the Italian Team Aprilia Racing. The 2025 line-up will have Marco Bezzecchi and Jorge Martín Almoguera as teammates, a duo ready to establish Aprilia at the top of the MotoGP standings.

From his 2022 MotoGP début, Marco has shown great talent and fierce determination, qualities which allowed him to achieve 3 wins, 9 podium finishes, and 4 pole positions, not to mention winning over the hearts of Italian fans.

“Welcome aboard to one of the best Italian talents, who has demonstrated his worth from his début in the lower categories and especially last year in MotoGP, with outstanding performances and even breakaway victories. We can’t wait to embrace Bez in Noale; the Italian bike and Italian rider duo are extremely exciting, but even more so is the rider pair which will be formed with Jorge. We are really happy with our line-up for 2025, Martín and Bezzecchi were our first choices for their age, talent, grit, and determination. With them we can write a new and important chapter in the history of Aprilia Racing”.
