Alvaro Bautista has announced he will be riding a Ducati in 2017 after penning a one-year deal to ride for the Pull&Bear Aspar squad.

The hugely experienced Spaniard, who was without a ride after losing his place in the Aprilia factory team, will be campaigning a Ducati Desmosedici GP16 for the season, while the team’s other rider, who is still to be confirmed, will be racing on a Desmosedici GP15.

The smart money is on Eugene Laverty retaining his seat, although the Irishman is through to have an offer on the cards to ride a factory-backed Aprilia in WSBK. If Laverty does switch series, team-mate Yonny Hernandez will stay with Aspar.
