I think the "tricolore" barcode logo looks the business and is a fitting endorsement to a country that punches well above its weight in automotive design. Nice one.

With Vale there now it's like the Italian national team. The atmosphere at Ducati must be crazy, Nicky is a lucky boy to be part of it. Even the Vale/Ducati haters have to admit that would be fun as sh@t to be a part of.

Funny...they just revealed the 2011 livery and there's NOT a tri-color anything that I can see anywhere.......What gives?

It doesn't really matter though.....the Neon yellow looks hideous with the Ducati red anyway.

No tri-color anywhere.

Nicky's bike looks really clean.

I'm not sure what to think of Val's bike. The neon yellow on the red/white is a livery that was fit for the 80's or early 90's. It's not so bad but definitely not the best.

On the pics on GPOne there seems to be something in front of the GENERALI logo on the top of the tank. Could be the Tricolore. I was expecting more based on the press releases and the photoshop in this article. Pretty funny that they do a press release about a 2 inch sized sticker!
