It has been confirmed that Alvaro Bautista will partner Chaz on the Ducati in WSBK next year , Melandri is apparently in talks with Yoshimura Suzuki to replace Roger Hayden in Moto America .

Not the youngest of riders but he does have a wealth of experience.

He's always struggled with consistency. It seems to take him a while to get used to a new bike.

new bike to get dialed in , new team mate plus variable rev limits depending on how successful they perform and then there's Johnny Rea , It's not going to be a walk in the park .

Ducati have won in their new bikes debut season every time except with the Panigale v2. With the arrival of the Panigale v4 normal service will return.

Chaz is capable of the task and the v4 is a quantum leap forward. I would say the advantage is firmly in the red corner.

With an extra 300cc you would hope they can compete with the other bikes
