MotoE: MotoE 2023 entry list: 9 out of 18 riders are Italian, 6 Spanish

For the MotoE, 2023 will be a year of great changes. The first is the electric-bike championship that will go from a World Cup to a tried and true World Championship. The second is that, after the Energica era, the Ducati one as the sole supplier of motorcycles will begin.

The riders will be able to get on the electric Ducati for the first time in Jerez, where tests are scheduled from March 6th ans 7th, while Barcelona will host the pre-season tests from April 2rd to 5th. The first race will be the Le Mans GP, the others in Mugello, Sachsenring, Assen, Silverstone, Red Bull Ring, Barcelona, and Misano: 8 rounds for a total of 16 races.

Meanwhile, the FIM has published the list of riders for 2023 but the reigning champion, Dominique Aegerter, isn't on it.

There will be a total 18 riders who will participate in the World Championship, and half are Italian. Matteo Ferrari is the veteran of the category (and the first winner of the championship in 2019). Along with him will be Andrea Mantovani, Kevin Zannoni, Luca Salvadori, Nicolas Spinelli, Kevin Manfredi, Mattia Casadei, Alessandro Zaccone, and Alessio Finello.

The second most represented nation is Spain, with 6 riders:  Maria Herrera, Hector Garzo, Mika Perez, Tito Rabat, Miquel Pons, and Jordi Torres. The last three places are occupied by Swiss rider Randy Krummenacher, Brazilian Eric Granado, and the Japanese, Hikari Okubo, for a touch of internationality.
