As the 2021 MotoGP Championship season rapidly approaches, we are beginning to see our first glimpses of the bikes that will be on the grid this year. First up is Ducati Corse.
Now of course, what Ducati Corse plans to race this year isn’t exactly what we’re seeing here, as these new bike unveilings for MotoGP have turned into a trend of last year’s bike’s getting this year’s livery.
Still, it is fun to see the new colors, as well as a close-up glimpse at these racing beauties.
Onboard the factory team’s Ducati Desmosedici GP21 this year we have two new riders, with Jack Miller and Pecco Bagnaia wearing the rosso corsa livery.
“The start of a new season is always a special moment, and this year even more, as we have a completely new team. We have two new riders with us, Jack Miller and Pecco Bagnaia,” said Gigi Dall’Igna, General Manager of Ducati Corse.
“Both are extraordinarily talented, they’re young, but they have already a lot of experience on our bike. Jack and Pecco have great potential, and I think that together we can fight not only to defend the Constructors’ Title won in 2020, but we can also aim for the Riders’ Title.”
“As per this year’s regulations, we cannot modify some of the bike’s components. Still, during winter, we have been able to work on many other aspects to improve our bike’s competitiveness and be ready to start the new season.”
“From 2021 we will also be able to count on even greater support from Lenovo, which has been our partner since 2018 and with whom we have worked very well together over the past few seasons. I’m sure that together we will be able to achieve even greater success this year while entertaining and bringing excitement to all the Ducatisti around the world.”
