Ducati

Ducati moved swiftly to tie star man Francesco Bagnaia down to a long-term deal but the saga over his 2025 team-mate dominated the early rider market.

Marc Marquez eventually claimed the role, after an apparent U-turn from Ducati, who had appeared to pick title leader Jorge Martin.

Ducati will also welcome Moto2 teenage talent Fermin Aldeguer to the premier class in 2025. 

But it remains unconfirmed which team he will ride for with Pramac splitting from Ducati and joining Yamaha in 2025.

It is still to be confirmed if Pramac's pair of factory-spec bikes will be reallocated to VR46 and/or Gresini, but Alex Marquez will be riding one of the Gresini machines after re-signing for 2025 and 2026.

KTM

KTM had already locked Brad Binder into a long-term contract until 2026, with rookie star Pedro Acosta confirmed as moving from Tech3 GASGAS to the factory team.

But there was a surprise at the Tech3 team which will run an all-new line-up of Enea Bastianini and Maverick Vinales, while also dropping GASGAS branding for Red Bull KTM colours.

That also means current KTM riders Jack Miller and Augusto Fernandez are out of a ride.

Aprilia

It'll be all change for 2025 at the factory Aprilia with Aleix Espargaro retiring at the end of this year and Maverick Vinales signing for KTM Tech3.

Jorge Martin will inherit good friend Espargaro's machine, after missing out at Ducati, with Marco Bezzecchi arriving from VR46 to replace Vinales.

The rebrand of the US-backed Trackhouse could mean an American rider, such as Moto2's Joe Roberts, is considered. But with both Espargaro and Vinales leaving, at least one of the current Trackhouse riders is likely to stay for continuity.

Yamaha

A key piece of the 2025 rider market was solved by Yamaha when they tied Fabio Quartararo into new contract, rumoured to be making him MotoGP's highest-paid rider.

The factory then pulled off another major coup when, having lost out on VR46, they suceeded in tempting reigning teams' champion's Pramac away from Ducati on what is reported to be a seven-year deal for factory bikes starting next season.

Honda

Luca Marini signed a two-year contract to be Marc Marquez's Repsol Honda replacement, with Johann Zarco also locked in until the end of 2025 at LCR.

Honda's other two riders - Repsol's Joan Mir and LCR's Takaaki Nakagami - are out of contract.

HRC knows their bike isn't too tempting at the moment, but the manufacturer is a MotoGP powerhouse and could yet attract a big-name signing. BMW WorldSBK star Toprak Razgatlioglu is an exciting rumour.

Aleix Espargaro is rumoured to be a HRC test and wild-card rider in 2025.
