World Superbike star Eugene Laverty is in negotiations for several of the remaining 2015 MotoGP rides.

"MotoGP is my priority for next year," Laverty told Crash.net. "I feel it is the right time to move to MotoGP and having had a taste of the Bridgestone tyres on the Suzuki earlier this year I know it suits my style.

"There are a few options that could materialise. The three main bikes that are still available are the Pramac Ducati, Aspar Honda and Forward Yamaha. But a lot of it depends on the Scott Redding situation. There's a lot going on and deadlines being moved at the moment."

The present Voltcom Crescent Suzuki rider added: "There are different strengths for each option. For my riding style I've always said I'd like to ride a Honda but I never thought there would be one available. It's an Open bike, not a Factory bike, but it sounds like next year it'll be pretty damn close and I believe I could be quick on it early on.

"At Ducati I have a good relationship with Gigi [Dall'Igna] and other guys. They know my level and how we developed the Aprilia in Superbike. So that's got some future in it and would appeal to me too."

Eugene, younger brother of PBM rider Michael, is a title runner-up in both the WSS and WSBK championships. He has won WSBK races for Yamaha, Aprilia and Suzuki.
