Savadori and Smith retained by Aprilia for 2021

Aleix Espargaro, Lorenzo Savadori and Bradley Smith will be the Aprilia Racing riders for the 2021 MotoGP™ World Championship season. Aleix Espargaro ends “disaster year” with season-best result 22/11/2020. Over the last few weeks, the names of several riders have been associated with Aprilia Racing, as always happens in the negotiating phase. Some of the possibilities evaluated did not come to fruition independently of Aprilia Racing’s desires, so between the situations that were actually feasible and the possibility of continuing with the three riders who rode the RS-GP this season, the latter was chosen. MASSIMO RIVOLA – APRILIA RACING CEO: “It’s no secret that we offered three young riders an opportunity because we felt that our project could be very interesting for talented young riders, but they did not yet feel ready for the leap and, at the same time, the teams that have already signed them for the 2021 season preferred to keep them.
