In the first 12 races of 2021, the Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK rider has won 3 times (twice at Donington Park and once at the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli), come 2nd four times and 3rd twice beating Jonathan Rea, undisputed winner for the last six years with Kawasaki, to the top of the rankings.
These feats have attracted the attention of the MotoGP teams especially after Maverick Viñales said farewell to Yamaha which is having a domino effect on the other riders. Some thought that Razgatlioglu would have moved into MotoGP but in Assen, the official Yamaha Superbike team announced that his contract would be renewed for another 2 years.
Razgatlioglu made his mark participating in the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup in 2013-2014. In 2015, he dominated the European Superstock 600 Championship winning 5 times and coming 3rd twice in the 7 races. After leaving the 600 class, he moved into the 1000 one, first in the Superstock championship and then in the World Superbike Championship where he made his debut in 2018.
