Despite a recent test for Alex de Angelis on an Aprilia RS-GP (pictured), it appears the Ioda rider will be back on his usual ART this weekend at Aragon.

Nevertheless, IodaRacing has confirmed to Crash.net that they are working to try and secure 2015 RS-GPs for the Sammarinese in next year's world championship.

Aprilia will debut an all-new MotoGP prototype in 2016, meaning the present machines used by factory riders Alvaro Bautista and Stefan Bradl - which feature a seamless shift gearbox and pneumatic valves - would be available.
