Lorenzo Savadori Biography

After three MotoGP race appearances for Aprilia at the end of 2020, Lorenzo Savadori was promoted to race rider for the 2021 MotoGP season ahead of fellow test rider Bradley Smith.

However, Savadori's racing season was cut short by a foot fracture in Austria, after hitting Dani Pedrosa's fallen KTM, and Aprilia's subsequent signing of Maverick Vinales. 

After the Spaniard's unexpected arrival, Savadori - the 2015 FIM Superstock champion, who then spent three seasons racing for Aprilia in World Superbike (best finish of fourth) - reverted to test and wild-card rider.

Savadori continued in that role for 2022, making five further MotoGP appearances. While he failed to score a point, the breakthrough win and podiums by Aleix Espargaro plus first RS-GP rostrums for Maverick Vinales reflected positively on Savadori's testing efforts.
