The following year Chaz and his team moved up into the Superbike World Championship category, and the Welshman took one victory and won the Rookie of the Year award with ninth place overall in the final standings. These good results earned him a factory bike for 2013, a season in which his team-mate was Marco Melandri. Chaz finished the season in fifth place and stepped onto the top of the podium three times.
In 2014 Ducati made its official return to World Superbike with a factory team and Chaz Davies was one of two men chosen to ride the 1199 Panigale. In his first year with Ducati, he finished sixth overall in the championship, demonstrating the increasing competitiveness of the Panigale SBK. In the following season he scored the bike’s first win at Aragon, and this was followed by victories at Laguna Seca (a double win), Sepang and Jerez. These results powered him to the runner-up slot in the championship. In 2016 he finished third overall in the final standings, but took the factory Panigale bike to eleven wins after dominating the final six rounds of the championship. In 2017, Davies confirms his top-contender status by finishing the season as runner-up and taking 7 wins overall.
