Af­ter two years racing lower-spec RCVS in Mo­togp, Nicky headed to World Su­per­bikes in 2016, lured by the thought of a new Fire­blade in 2017 and the po­ten­tial to be­come the first Mo­togp/ WSB cham­pion. His 2016 bike was out­dated, but he still man­aged a win at Sepang in the wet – al­most 14 years af­ter his de­but as a WSB wildcard and 10 years af­ter his last Mo­togp win. He fin­ished fifth in the ti­tle stand­ings.
