Forward Racing is courting a host of new riders for the team's 2014 privateer Yamaha bikes, according its owner Giovanni Cuzari.

He told the official MotoGP website that in addition to present riders Colin Edwards and Claudio Corti, he is "speaking with Nicky Hayden, Aleix Espargaro and Jonathan Rea".

Rea has also been linked with a 2014 Production Honda ride, while Hayden is on the wishlist of the LCR team to ride the new Production (privateer) Honda.

Cuzari spoke at Indianapolis and said that while he is in discussion with a number of very good riders no decision has been made as yet.

He explained: "I'm not saying I don't have good riders. I have very good riders, but of course I have to choose the best solution for me and my supporters and my sponsors that support me in this project.

"We agreed with Yamaha to lease the engine and the frame, the body of the bike, so we lease almost a complete bike from Yamaha."
