He'll basically be riding a bike like Bradley Smith has. That's most likely the competitiveness the Forward team will have next year, but certainly not more than that. So I would be looking at it through those lenses.
And he's tied with Smith already without those upgrades. I do think rider v rider - Aleix is probably the better rider though. But even so, I'd have to think he'll be around that level next yea - and thus he won't be moving up that much.
I don't see it being that big of a change. And if Aprilia really steps up, it could be the seriously wrong decision.
