Esteve "Tito" Rabat Bergada (born 25 May 1989 in Barcelona, Spain) is a Spanish motorcycle racer who currently competes in the Moto2 class in the Motorcycle World championship. He started racing professionally in 2005, and made his Grand Prix début at that season's Valencian Grand Prix.[1]

Rabat's breakthrough year came during the 2013 season. After finishing ninth in the season-opening Qatar Grand Prix, Rabat recorded a second place finish at the Grand Prix of the Americas; after five previous third places, it was Rabat's best result in Grand Prix racing at the time. The following race, Rabat achieved his first pole position in the Spanish Grand Prix,[2] outpacing all of his rivals by over four tenths of a second. In the race, Rabat led from start to finish, winning by over four seconds from Scott Redding.[3] He added victories later in the season, at the Indianapolis and Malaysian Grands Prix.
