The 2017 Aragon motorcycle Grand Prix was the fourteenth round of the 2017 MotoGP season. It was held at the Ciudad del Motor de Aragón in Alcañiz on September 24, 2017. This was the 900th race to contribute to the Grand Prix motorcycle racing championship.

Earlier on Friday afternoon, a number of riders expressed concern that the initial 30-minute FP3 delay wouldn't be enough to allow the track to warm sufficiently.

Several riders outside of the provisional Q2 places - including the Ducatis of Andrea Dovizioso, Jack Miller and French GP winner Danilo Petrucci - may stand a better chance of improving on their FP2 times with the new schedule.

Due to the cold conditions expected for the final run of races at Aragon, Ricardo Tormo near Valencia and Algarve in Portugal, the allocation of front soft tyres has been increased by one from five to six for each weekend.

It is not clear yet if future races will have their schedules altered in response to the expected colder conditions.

Friday's running at Aragon was topped by Yamaha's Maverick Vinales, who led championship leader Petronas SRT's Fabio Quartararo by 0.249 seconds.

Quartararo's nearest title rival Joan Mir on the Suzuki was fourth on the combined times.
