Andrea Dovizioso Returns to MotoGP with Aprilia


That Andrea Dovizioso was not going to stay away from the circuits was an open secret. The actual reasons for his “gap year” have been debated by thousands of fans. But what is clear is that, among all the speculations, none of them led us to see the Italian rider on an Aprilia.

Let’s remember that Aprilia is the only factory that has concessions today. KTM fortunately lost them last year. One of the benefits obtained thanks to these concessions is the programming of private tests such as the one that will be carried out in Jerez from April 12 to 14, in which Andrea Dovizioso will test the Aprilia RS-GP 2021 that Aleix has already tested, Espargaró and Lorenzo Salvadori in Qatar.

Dovizioso is delighted with this opportunity that Aprilia has given him: “I was delighted by Aprilia’s interest and when we talked about the possibility of doing this test, I gladly accepted the invitation to be able to ride a MotoGP bike again and stay in shape, giving my opinion to the engineers. I want to thank Aprilia Racing for this opportunity.”
