Pedro Acosta’s Rise Casts Uncertainty Over Jack Miller’s Future: Exploring Options Beyond the KTM Factory Team



Pedro Acosta grabs the spotlight, raising questions about Jack Miller's future.

As Pedro Acosta is rumored to join the factory KTM team by 2025, speculation arises about what lies ahead for Jack Miller.

Jack Miller, who has secured victories in MotoGP races with both Honda and Ducati, is setting his sights on matching Maverick Vinales' achievement of claiming wins with three distinct manufacturers.

Nonetheless, the KTM competitor has faced a challenging beginning to 2024, being overshadowed by the impressive newcomer, Pedro Acosta.

The current Moto2 world champion has consistently outperformed competitors such as Miller and Brad Binder in several races.

Speculation is mounting that Acosta is on the verge of taking over Miller's spot on the Red Bull KTM squad, leading to the likelihood of Miller seeking a new team by 2025.

What choices does Miller have?

Shifting to GASGAS

Though Miller is likely to prefer staying with a factory team, he would get access to the most current RC16 model in a team that consistently demonstrates its ability to compete effectively.

Miller shares a positive rapport with KTM, which means moving to GASGAS would enable him to persist in his MotoGP career under the Austrian umbrella, while also providing the affiliate team with a prominent rider boasting significant expertise.

Under the guidance of Herve Poncharal, GASGAS seems to operate as a highly efficient team, fostering a supportive atmosphere for its racers. This aspect may attract Miller, known as one of the most vibrant figures in MotoGP.

Position as a test rider for KTM

Similar to Pol Espargaro's situation, Miller might consider taking up a test rider position, but at 29, he probably views it as a fallback option.

Miller has shown time and again his competitive nature, and should a team decide to bring him on board, they would be acquiring a rider who may still have his best days ahead of him.

Given that KTM potentially boasts the strongest test rider duo in Dani Pedrosa and Pol Espargaro, the likelihood of securing a test rider position with KTM seems minimal.

Transition to WorldSBK

Moving from MotoGP to WorldSBK might seem like a downgrade for the Australian racer, yet the high caliber of competitors in WorldSBK is precisely why the championship is now more fiercely contested than ever before.

At times, the competition in WorldSBK can rival that of MotoGP, and given that major players such as Ducati and Yamaha may be keen on acquiring Miller, offering him highly competitive deals, the KTM racer might soon be in a scenario where he's consistently vying for victories and titles.

Numerous racers have transitioned from MotoGP to WorldSBK in the past few years, achieving significant achievements, and Miller might be the next one to follow suit if he decides to go in that direction.

Transitioning to a different MotoGP manufacturer team

Opportunities for Miller to join the factory teams of Ducati, Aprilia, and Yamaha appear to be off the table. Meanwhile, it remains uncertain if Joan Mir will continue with Repsol Honda.

Hence, Miller emerges as a highly feasible choice for the Japanese manufacturer, eager to amass a strong roster of premier riders to elevate their competitive status.

Miller is seasoned in navigating a Honda on the MotoGP circuit, and while a switch from KTM to the RC213V might mean a drop in performance, joining Repsol Honda could offer Miller the sole opportunity to stay on as a factory rider.

Coverage Alternatives

Joe Roberts is rumored to be in close association with Trackhouse Racing given his impressive beginning to the 2024 Moto2 season. Should the Aprilia squad decide on a comprehensive team makeover, Miller might be positioned to join alongside the American competitor.

LCR Honda – Should the Japanese team persist with Joan Mir and Luca Marini as their choices, Miller might consider shifting to Honda under the LCR banner, given the slim chances of">ki Nakagami retaining his spot for another season.

Yamaha – The possibility of Pramac switching from Ducati to provide Yamaha with a pair of satellite motorcycles might be significantly boosted by acquiring Miller. This is especially true since a transition to the Monster Yamaha squad seems improbable after they extended Fabio Quartararo's contract and seem satisfied with Alex Rins.
