- Nine Riders
- More Riders
There's also support series for MotoGP riders and historical riders, thanks to the new Nine mode. Here's the full list of confirmed riders for MotoGP, Moto2, and more!
#04 - Andrea Dovizioso
Andrea Dovizioso seemed to be out of MotoGP entirely after 2020, but the Italian made a comeback midway through last year with his old team Yamaha. Dovizioso impressed the Japanese outfit enough to reward him with a full-time drive with Yamaha RNF in 2022.
#5 - Johann Zarco
Johann Zarco goes into 2022 still without a win in his MotoGP career. That's not for lack of trying though, as the Frenchman finished second on four occasions in 2021. Zarco also finished fifth overall in the championship, so the Ducati rider could be a dark horse in 2022.
#10 - Luca Marini
Luca Marini's first MotoGP season in 2021 wasn't spectacular, but he was consistent. The Italian Ducati rider finished every race in the season, something that will serve him well in 2022. He'll be looking to improve on a best finish of fifth.
#12 - Maverick Vinales
2021 was a tumultuous year for Maverick Vinales. A mid-season team move won't have helped the Spaniard's consistency, but he has found a permanent home in the form of Aprillia. He'll be hoping to replicate his early season form in 2022.
#20 - Fabio Quartararo
One of the most surprising champions ever in MotoGP history was Fabio Quartararo. El Diablo scored five wins and a total of ten podiums in 2021 to become the first ever French world motorcycle champion.
Quartararo is still only 22, so is improving all the time and will be hoping to continue his incredible form with Yamaha.
#21 - Franco Morbidelli
Franco Morbidelli initially signed with Petronas SRT, but the Malaysian manufacturers pulled out of MotoGP before the start of 2022. So, Morbidelli remains with Yamaha, now riding for the senior team. Morbidelli will be looking for a much better year after sinking to 17th in the standings in 2021.
#23 Enea Bastianini
By all accounts, Enea Bastianini's debut MotoGP campaign in 2021 went very well. The Italian rider placed 11th overall in the standings, even getting a pair of podiums at Misano. Bastianini remains at Ducati for 2022.
#25 - Raul Fernandez
2021 Moto2 runner-up Raul Fernandez gets his MotoGP debut in 2022 with KTM.
#30 - Takaaki Nakagami
Takaaki Nakagami didn't have a good 2021 season, as the podium continues to allude him. The Japanese rider remains with Honda for 2022.
#33 - Brad Binder
Brad Binder continued to improve in 2021, finishing an impressive sixth overall in the rider's standings. Only one win and one appearance on the podium will concern the South African, but he did go on a fourteen race long points-scoring streak.
#36 - Joan Mir
Joan Mir put up a decent defence of his 2020 title last year, finishing third overall. Mir didn't manage to win any race though, so that could be a concern going into 2022 for the Suzuki rider.
#40 - Darryn Binder
After seven years in Moto3, Darryn Binder will make the leap to MotoGP in 2022. The younger brother of Brad Binder, Darryn could struggle in the top series of motorcycle racing, as the highest he's finished in Moto3 is seventh.
#41 - Aleix Espargaro
Aleix Espargaro had his best MotoGP season since 2014 last year, picking his first podium up since that year as well. The Spaniard remains with Aprillia.
#42 - Alex Rins
2020's third place rider overall had a real fall from grace in 2021. Rins was outside the top ten overall and failed to win a race. He remains with Suzuki for 2022.
#43 - Jack Miller
Jack Miller had his best-ever year in MotoGP in 2021, finishing fourth overall in the standings. That was helped by his first wins since 2016 as well and the Aussie will be looking to continue this form in 2022 with Ducati.
#44 - Pol Espargaro
Pol Espargaro's move to Honda last year didn't go to plan. The Spaniard will be hoping for better this year though, as he remains with the Japanese outfit.
#63 - Francesco Bagnaia
Quartararo winning the championship was a shock, but arguably an even bigger one came in the form of Francesco Bagnaia. The Italian ace came out of nowhere towards the end of the season to win four of the final six rounds and catapult himself into a runners-up spot overall.
Bagnaia could well continue his mesmeric form into 2022 and put the motorcycle establishment to the sword.
#72 - Marco Bezzecchi
Third-placed rider in Moto2 last year, Marco Bezzecchi will ride for the great Valentino Rossi's Ducati team in his debut season next year.
#73 - Alex Marquez
Younger brother of Marc, Alex Marquez hasn't quite found the form of his sibling in MotoGP yet. 2021 was a failure to improve on his form from 2020, he'll be hoping for more in 2022 as he continues with Honda.
#87 - Remy Gardner
2021's Moto2 champion was Remy Gardner, and the Kiwi will ride for KTM next year.
#88 - Miguel Oliveira
2021 was a year of highs and lows for Miguel Oliveira. The Portuguese rider managed to win in Catalonia but still finished down in 14th overall in the standings. He'll be hoping for better in 2022 with KTM.
#89 - Jorge Martin
Jorge Martin's 2021 was a year he showed his incredible talents but almost one that cost him his life. Martin was involved in a serious accident in Portugal which saw him miss that and the next three rounds. He came back to win his and Pramac's first ever MotoGP wins though.
#93 - Marc Marquez
Could this be the year we see this great champion back to top form? Marc Marquez was unstoppable between 2013 and 2019, winning six of the seven championships available during that time. An injury in 2020 meant he missed most of that and last season, but he should get a fair crack of the whip in 2022.
The Spaniard did take three wins in 2022, including his final two rounds. So, we could see the dominant form we once knew in 2019 again next year.
The MotoGP games have included historical content in recent years and MotoGP 22 has taken it to a new level. Nine is a complete recreation of the 2009 season and includes a full roster of drivers, teams and tracks.
Milestone’s annual MotoGP game also includes the full rosters for Moto2, Moto3, 800 4-stroke, 990 4-stroke and 500 2-stroke.
Sadly, there's no Motoe in this year's game.
Moto2 is the direct feeder series for MotoGP. Three Moto2 riders from 2021 will be making their MotoGP debuts in 2022, who from the current crop will make the step up for 2023?
