The world champion Ducati unveils the new ones Desmosedici GP23 by Pecco Bagnaia and Enea Bastianini. After the great 2022 season in which the Italian manufacturer won the Triple Crown, the goal is to try and repeat itself. The statistics don’t play in his favor, winning two consecutive MotoGP titles isn’t easy for anyone, but the Emilian group has an obligation to try and have all the credentials to hit the world championship encore.

After a winter of indecision and second thoughts I’m sorry Bagnaia has chosen to apply the world champion’s number 1 on the livery of the 2023 bike. It hasn’t happened since 2012, when Casey Stoner made the same decision after his triumph with Honda. “It’s been a long time since we haven’t seen the 1, I’ve always admired those who ran. The 1 represents who you are, it was right to pay homage last year. 63 will always be there, but I hope to see him again as soon as possible“.

It will be a two-pronged Ducati with the arrival of Aeneas Bastianini in the team factory. The rider from Romagna demonstrated his talent by demonstrating that he fully deserved this important saddle. He has a great responsibility, wearing the official colors certainly leads to more pressure, but the ‘Beast’ will be able to keep his head up in this situation: “This new adventure begins, the responsibility of riding the Ducati is important. We will do a good job, I think we have what it takes to do well. We will give our best and I think we will have fun“.

The riders of the SBK World Championship were also present on the stage of the official presentation in Madonna di Campiglio. Alvaro Bautistaworld champion 2022, also chose the number 1: “It was difficult, I made this decision with my little girl, only that every day she changed her mind. The secret to winning? I still enjoy it, I have the passion inside even at 38 years old. This is why I continue with a great desire to improve myself“.

At his side Michael Ruben Rinaldi who wants to take another step to get closer to the podium more consistently. But the first rider to beat will be the WorldSBK veteran and teammate: “My goal is to fight for the world title with Alvaro this season. I want to fight and let’s see who wins“.
