New livery and strong motivation

It has been over a couple of months that the world witnessed the end of the 2017 MotoGP championship. But for many like me, excitement levels are even higher now with the teams busy putting the 2018 MotoGP bikes through their paces and testing their readiness for the opening race of the MotoGP in Qatar.

Showcasing their 2018 game-plan, Ducati introduced the Ducati Desmosedici GP18 prototype that comes with a fresh new flair. With the Italian brand’s most successful MotoGP campaign behind them, Ducati promises an exciting 2018 season at an event in front of a packed crowd of media, press, team sponsors and the factory riders Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo.

The new livery on the Desmosedici GP18 prototype, according to me, is the best ever. Traditionally, the Borgo maker opts for a Red and White signature paintwork on their enormous body but, things are a bit different this time. This year sees the addition of a cool new grey color, and a little more of the blue you’d usually see on a Ducati Desmosedici.

With sponsors like Flex-Box and Shell Advance adding that hue of blue, we can’t find a reason why Ducati chose to add grey. Whatever the reason it is, it sure looks dope. And that is a good enough reason for me. Of course, this is not the final 2018 Ducati Desmosedici GP18 but looks like a new livery on the GP17 with the crazy hammerhead fairing.

Ducati will unveil the final Desmosedici GP18 soon and will have prominent technical changes, especially with the aero designs on the bodywork. Be pretty sure that Ducati will do everything in its stride to emerge as champs for the 2018 season.

Ducati Corse General Manager, Luigi Dall’Igna commented on the development: “When you come close to winning the title, like last year, it’s easy to lose direction in the development of the bike, and so all the innovations that we will introduce on the new Desmosedici GP will be characterized by evolution, not revolution."

Previous to the last season, Ducati couldn’t help the dry spell that followed Casey Stoner’s departure to Honda, and Valentino Rossi’s lackluster performances. But the team seemed to have turned a corner with both Andrea Dovizioso (who won 6 races in 2017) and Jorge Lorenzo at the helm, and the team had a ball last season.
