Franco Morbidelli (born 4 December 1994 in Rome) is an Italian motorcycle racer. He was the European Superstock 600 champion in 2013. He won the 2017 Moto2 World Championship with EG 0,0 Marc VDS after his closest championship contender Thomas Lüthi was declared unfit for the Malaysian GP following a crash at qualifying.
Despite the common misconception, he is not related to Giancarlo Morbidelli, manufacturer of the famed Morbidelli Grand Prix racing bikes, or his son, former Italian F1 driver Gianni Morbidelli. Morbidelli's father is Italian, but his mother is Brazilian.
