Scott Redding goes into his second season with the Ducati team in 2021 as the Italian manufacturer unveiled their latest Panigale V4 R. 

Redding made the move from British Superbike last season after claiming the title during his one and only season, and was the biggest challenger to eventual champion Jonathan Rea. 

Redding will be looking to build on a season that included five wins and another nine podiums for Ducati. 

The 28 year-old has a new team-mate for this year in Michael Ruben Rinaldi, which forms one of the better line-ups on the WorldSK grid. 

Speaking at the Ducati team's bike presentation in Italy, Redding said: "Last season was very exciting for me. The great support I received from Ducati and the extraordinary bond with the team were very important and gave me a deep desire to be competitive and win again.

"For this reason, I'll give my best to make that step that we missed in 2020.

"I'm convinced I can do well because last season, I had the opportunity to gain a lot of experience with the Panigale V4 R, know new circuits, and understand the format of an exciting competition like WorldSBK.

"This will allow me to start on an equal footing with my competitors in 2021. I want to thank all the guys in the team who work hard every day. To the fans, I can say that I will try to entertain them on track to celebrate together at the end."

Redding has already had a taste of the 2021 bike following a two-day test last week in Misano, as Ducati and Yamaha continued their preparations for the new campaign.

The next track action for the Brit will come on March 31 for the Official World Superbike test in Barcelona.
