I'm a big Nicky Hayden fan and like many others I too am looking forward to know where he will end up in 2014. Though he may no longer be a rider on the Desmo after this year, I can certainly say that either a Yamaha M1 or Aprilia ride will offer significant satisfaction compared to the current Desmo. I am hoping he will continue to ride in MotoGP but this time for the Noale factory. Should he decide to continue riding for a factory-backed machine, the closest he will ever get outside of WSBK is through the Aprilia factory. An upgraded chassis and pneumatic valved engine amongst other upgrades will surely improve the current ART product. A "customer-spec" Yamaha M1 will not touch a factory-backed M1 but the Aprilia machine will bring him closer to top 3-5 positions. He can still ride the heck out of any bike but I think the Aprilia package is far superior than what's currently out there.
