Eight Ducatis, that's a lot. No more customer Honda/Yamaha, a shame.

8 Ducati's, 5 Honda's, 4 Yamaha's, 2 Suzuki's and 3 Aprilia's all on Michelin tomorrow. Throw in a gaggle of young, GP seasoned youngsters and a few quick new faces in Baz and Rabat and we breathe a breath of fresh air starting tomorrow.
I am looking most forward to 2016.
I am hopefull that 2016 will see something other than only 4 factory bikes and 4 riders equipped to win any race.
Devil, as ever will be in the detail pertaining to rules and basic machinery supplied by manufacturer's to teams.

Alex expects to be on track next year? That would be very good news indeed.

...this guy. I mean to survive those injuries and to come back on that machine knowing that you'll end up last at most races (as much as I like Alex and underdog teams) you have to be either crazy or motorhead that can't live without bikes....

That would be good news, and an impressive feat. Surely the funds could be scraped up to get him off of the loathsome ART? Aren't there any 2015 Aprilias lying about?

Is there confirmation of the death of the downgraded Honda production racer piece of junk? Let us all hope so. If there was ever a piece of machinery that failed to deliver as promised....

I think this question only applies for Tito, think I already saw something about Miller on the factory bike, but not sure.

Tito will be on a factory RCV, being Scotts current, not a production bike

I mean, I know Spain is kind of the epicenter of MotoGP, but come on...

Oh, and +1 on Yonny.

When 63% of the riders in the MotoGP world championship come from only two countries, how can we be surprised when the end of the season becomes a flame war between Spanish and Italian newspapers.

53 TITO RABAT ESTRELLA GALICIA 0,0 MARC VDS

I've noticed the same discrepancy in the motogp.com live timing. AFAICS the two bikes have different liveries. Jack's is black, while Tito's is the familiar Estrella Galicia blue.

My prediction: Tito Rabat! I think he needs to earn at least 1 point tho... :-)

Can we expect a similar overview article, only with the types of bikes added?

I think for Ducati it's this:
GP16 for DRT,
GP15 for Pramac,
GP14.2 for Avintia,
14.0 and 14.1 for Aspar?.

What'll it be for the other teams, at least at the start of the season? For Honda in particular I'm curious if there'll be a difference between the bikes of Tito and Jack.
