Good to see Ducati putting it's faith back in the trellis frame as that is were most of their success has been. Also love the ram air and headlight stickers just like SBK will run this year! I take it the mirrors are on there for when getting lapped...
Good luck boys you will need it !!! :)

@splodge

If it was these riders on last years bike and team I'd agree that they wouldn't get a podium, but Ducati have changed a lot more than just the riders.

Even if they start out badly they should be in a better position to develop something competitive with 4 riders on near enough the same bike to get feedback from and someone who's willing to listen to that feedback along with greater financial backing.

@David - yes the number plate holder is there to help collect speeding tickets and the indicators are a safety measure to use when turning into the pits and the rail behind the seat is for a top box to carry the riders lunch and snacks

@LOL whilst you might appreciate sarcasm and understand the bike's a multistrada there's still a good few people posting who can't tell the difference between a race & road bike. Mind you, Ducati may as well enter a road bike for all the chance they have. What a waste of a talented rider of Dovizioso's class

A lot of hot air from Ducati.
Both Hayden and Dovi say that they will be starting the year with the same bike that finished 2012. They hint that there will be work on getting the best out of the engine though.
If you are a Rossi fan you can say that the chassis is now sorted. More likely Ducati still haven't cottoned on that development must be quicker.

It's a good job that Ducati is there on the tank. I thought it was a Suzuki.

Ducati CEO Del Torchio opens VrooM and introduces new Ducati team. He's done very well in his career. I remember his early years on TV when he played the title character in "Torchy, The Battery Boy". And who can forget Del in the Italian version of "Only Fools and Horses"? If he doesn't sing to Audi's tune he might have to return to his TV career sooner than he likes.
