European reports have linked German Stefan Bradl to the Aprilia Racing Team Gresini as the future of Forward Racing remains uncertain.

Forward Racing will miss the upcoming Indianapolis round of the MotoGP World Championship following the arrest of team owner Giovanni Cuzari, with a return date – if any – not yet confirmed.

It’s now indicated Bradl could vacate the team altogether prior to the Indianapolis round in favour of joining Aprilia, replacing ousted Italian Marco Melandri alongside Alvaro Bautista on the RS-GP.

The future of fellow Forward Racing MotoGP rider Loris Baz, as well as Moto2 teammates Simone Corsi and Lorenzo Baldassari, also is currently unclear.
