Ducati present Desmosedici GP15

Ducati present Desmosedici GP15

Ahead of the forthcoming 2015 MotoGP™ World Championship season Ducati have presented their new GP15 prototype.

The official Ducati Team riders, Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone, helped unveil the new Ducati Desmosedici GP15 at the Italian factory’s 2015 MotoGP team launch, held at the Ducati Auditorium, in Borgo Panigale, Italy.

The new bike, which will make its public on-track debut at the Sepang 2 test before the end of the month, is more compact than its predecessor the GP14.

The most visible updates to the machine relate mainly to new aerodynamics, with details such as a new air intake and a sleeker, smaller tail fairing. Further technical upgrades, such as improvements to electronics and the new version of a ‘seamless’ gearbox were also explained at the launch by Ducati Corse General Manager, Luigi Dall’Igna.

The GP15 will only be made available this season to Dovizioso and Iannone, so the rest of the Ducati equipped riders on the MotoGP grid will continue riding distinct versions of the GP14.
