In 2016 and 2017, Rabat drove a Honda. This was followed by three years with Ducati.

Avintia Ducati newcomer Johann Zarco admits he expected to be faster in his first test outing with the Desmosedici MotoGP bike in Sepang. Zarco , who split with previous employer KTM last year and was persuaded by Ducati to sign a works contract and ride for satellite team Avintia in 2020, had sat out the Valencia and Jerez tests in November. Friday at Sepang thus represented Zarco 's first day riding the Ducati Desmosedici GP19, and he ended it in 19th place, a second and a half off the pace.

Zarco : " Ducati convinced me!" The French rider confirms his seat in 2020. Yamaha, KTM, Honda and now Ducati : it will be the fourth bike you ride in as many years, how do you expect to adapt to the Desmosedici? “These three races on the Honda have really taken away some doubts, which could be because of the lack of results.
