1 of 4

Ducati have pulled the covers off a new-look 2018 MotoGP machine at the Italian manufacturer’s headquarters in Bologna, with Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo unveiling a new colour scheme that sees the traditional red and while colours replaced with a new red and grey scheme for the coming year.

Showing off the bike for the first time in front of sponsors and media in the Borgo Panigale factory, the modifications to the new bike, while subtle, make the already aggressive-looking Demosedici GP machine look even angrier.

However, the bike still isn’t the finalised design, with a new aerodynamic package set to replace the current winglets at one of the upcoming preseason tests in either Malaysia or Thailand early next month.
