CM Racing have officially become the second Ducati WorldSSP team to unveil their 2022 colours. 

Following last week’s official presentation by Althea Racing Ducati and its rider Federico Caricasulo, CM Racing were next to show off their new colours for former Moto3 rider Maximilian Kofler. 

CM Racing, who elected to join Ducati on their return to WorldSSP for the first time since 2007, have taken the gamble to switch away from Yamaha machinery for the first time. 

Discussing the look of his new Ducati V2, Kofler added: "I am really fascinated by the livery of the bike, which in a way also looks fast. 

"Of course I hope to be fast on the track, and to get great results. 

"This presentation has confirmed the great feeling that has already been created between me and the team, so I can say that we are ready to start."

Following his switch from Moto3 where he spent the last two full seasons, Kofler has already been in action after taking part in last month’s two day WorldSBK Portimao test alongside Nicolo Bulega (Aruba.it Ducati) and Oliver Bayliss (Barni Spark Ducati). 

The presentation of Kofler’s new Ducati 955cc machine took place in Rome after the Austrian took part in a private test at Vallelunga. 

"It has been an intense day, but a profitable one," said Team Director Manuel Cappelletti. "In the test in Vallelunga we understood some interesting things, which will certainly help us in the development of the bike, and the presentation was very exciting. 

"To pose with the bike in front of the Colosseum I think it was a great emotion for everyone, which we will take with us to give our best during the season"
