Flamboyant WorldSBK star Davide Giugliano will stand in for the crocked Eugene Laverty at next weekend's Aragon round.
Giugliano, who was last seen in competition on a Red Bull Honda, will partner countryman Lorenzo Savadori in Spain and at Assen, while he could also race on home soil in Italy should Laverty not be fully recovered.
"First of all I'm sorry for what happened to Eugene in Thailand and I hope he can get back on his bike as soon as possible," said Giugliano.
"I want to thank Shaun Muir and the Milwaukee Aprilia team for allowing me to stand in and for their cooperation. We only have a short time to prepare but the upcoming rounds are at tracks I know very well, and I have great confidence in the experience and professionalism of the crew."
