Some of the very awaited changes in the teams did happen. One of them is Jorge Lorenzo to Ducati. We all are very curious about how he will do in the Italian manufacturer.

The other one is Maverick Vñales to Yamaha. For me dark horse of the championship.

But there are some more interesting changes! Andrea Iannone goes to Suzuki, while Aleix Espargaró moves to Aprilia. Álvaro Bautista moves back to his old team Aspar.

There will be 4 newcomers. It will be exciting to watch their battle for the Rookie of the year trophy. Sam Lowes goes to Aprilia, Alex Rins has signed with Suzuki. Johann Zarco and Jonas Folger are now team mates in Tech 3.

The KTM factory comes to MotoGP with their team. Their riders will be Pol Espargaró and Bradley Smith. They know each other very well as they were team mates in Tech 3 for a few years.

Karel Abraham returns back to MotoGP after 1 year spent in World Superbikes. He will be racing in Aspar Team.

Stefan Bradl and Eugene Laverty are leaving MotoGP, both go to World Superbikes. Yonny Hernández moves back to Moto2 category.
