Official images and videos of the Ducati GP12

Here are the official pics and videos following today’s unveiling of the Ducati GP12 which has much more white than before and the Tricolore is evidenced and the livery design is identical to that of Ducati 1199 Panigale Tricolore only the red and green are a slightly different shade.

Filippo Preziosi informed viewers that since their has been a lot of curiosity surrounding the bike engine he confirmed it is still has a V90° and the capacity is a full 1000cc and at the upcoming MotoGP test at Jerez Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden will finally be able to chase lap times after finding their set-up so we’ll hopefully be seeing some decent lap times from the Ducati riders and if the new GP12 will be closer to its rivals or if the start of the 2012 season will have the same sorry story arc as in 2011.
