Niccolò Canepa (born 14 May 1988 in Genoa) is an Italian motorcycle road racer competing in the Superbike World Championship for Althea Racing aboard a Ducati 1199

Having previously competed in the Italian Superstock Championship, the Italian Supersport Championship, and the Superstock 600 UEM European Championship – where he finished runner-up in 2006 – Canepa won the 2007 Superstock 1000 F.I.M. Cup championship on a Ducati, and spent 2008 as a tester of their MotoGP and World Superbike machines.[1][2] He was given three World Superbike wild card rides in the second half of the 2008,[3] qualifying on the second row for his debut at Brno, on his first experience of the one-shot "Superpole" system. He raced in MotoGP full-time for Pramac Ducati in 2009 with little success, and made an uncompetitive start in Moto2. He moved back to the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup in 2011, and after a season in the Superbike World Championship in 2012, returned to Superstock 1000 in 2013 and became runner-up behind Sylvain Barrier.
