Iker Lecuona Set To Make The Jump To WorldSBK

KTM MotoGP rider, Iker Lecuona, is set to move to WorldSBK with HRC Honda for the 2022 WorldSBK Championship.

The Tech3 KTM rider was heavily linked with a move to WorldSBK after failing to secure a spot in MotoGP for the 2022 season.

Nonetheless, Lecuona hinted that there are a few options on the table in WorldSBK, including a possible move to HRC to replace Ducati-bound Alvaro Bautista.

“We still finalising every point in the contract. I expect to say something at Misano if everything is fine.

“I think I’ve learnt a lot of things for my life too. I’m very happy to have stayed here for two years.

“I don’t know if in the future, I will come back or if I will stay in another Championship.

“I don’t know; I just know I want to continue these performances, to continue to enjoy, to fight with my idols, and then we will see what happen,” said the 21-year-old rider.

Despite his uncertain future at MotoGP, Lecuona still has time on his hand as he is just 21.

Moving to WorldSBK to justify himself as a competitive rider could serve him well and perhaps make his way back to the MotoGP World Championship in a few years.
