Vizziello made a surprise return to the Superbike World Championship midway through the 2015 season, riding a Kawasaki ZX-10R for the Grillini SBK Team for the remainder of the season. He scored 13 points with a best finish of eleventh at Magny-Cours. Vizziello substituted for Román Ramos at the 2016 rounds of Imola and Sepang after Ramos got injured in second free practice at Imola. Later that season Vizziello rejoined the Grillini Racing Team for the remainder of the season.

Supersport World Championship

Vizziello moved down to the Supersport World Championship for 2006, riding a Yamaha YZF-R6 for Yamaha Team Italia.

Vizziello moved to the team of Johan Stigefelt for the 2009 season. He had a difficult season and Vizziello had to step out of the championship after the Nürburgring round due to the economic situation of the team combined with disappointing results. For the next two years Vizziello sporadically appeared in the championship starting in three races.
