Ducati has today unveiled this 2016 MotoGP race livery for Andrea Iannone and Andrea Dovizioso.

The launch was held at the team's factory in Borgo Panigale, Italy, where Iannone and Dovizioso were joined on stage by Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali, Ducati Corse general manager Gigi Dall'Igna, sporting director Paolo Ciabatti and team manager Davide Tardozzi.

One of the most obvious visual changes for 2016 is that Ducati's unique 'winglets' are now painted white.

The '2016 Desmosedici GP' - already seen in testing - is the second complete machine designed under the leadership of Dall'Igna, whose factory riders took eight podiums last season but missed out on the goal of a first race win since Casey Stoner in 2010.

Iannone finished fifth in the world championship, despite twice dislocating his shoulder, with Dovizioso dropping to seventh after a stunning start to the season.

The pair have posted modest results in the two official pre-season tests to date at Sepang and Phillip Island, where the 2016 Desmosedici was in carbon black. However Ducati appears to have made a seamless transition to the new unified ECU software and is tipped as one of the favourites during the opening round in Qatar on March 20.

The unified ECU is one of two big technical changes this season, alongside a switch from Bridgestone to Michelin tyres.

Dovizioso lost out on victory by just 0.174s to Valentino Rossi at Qatar last season.
