SBK: Honda wants to take Toprak Razgatlioglu to MotoGP!

The MotoGP rider market has entered into full swing and in this regard there is no shortage of surprises and twists. After Marc Marquez's move to Ducati Factory and Martin's move to Aprilia, with Vinales and Bastianini in KTM, the hot name has suddenly become that of Toprak Razgatlioglu.

As we all know, the Turk has a contract with BMW for next season as well, but it was his manager Kenan Sofuoglu who stirred the pot, stating that he has already let the Munich-based manufacturer know that he will soon leave Superbike to catch the train tied to MotoGP. Apparently this is the desire of the #54.

According to what we have learned, Honda is strongly interested in taking the world championship runner-up to MotoGP, to the point that the news was already circulating in the paddock on Sunday night at Misano. Sofuoglu's words further fueled this possibility so much so that we had a chance to sound this possibility out, finding confirmation regarding HRC's offer toward the Turk.

In the last few hours, it seems that HRC has already talked to Sofuoglu, putting an offer on the table to bring the Turk to MotoGP next year. We will now see what will be Toprak's desire: whether to stay in Superbike or jump on the MotoGP train. One thing for sure is certain: never before have Toprak's doors to MotoGP been so wide open.
