Lenovo arrives as title sponsor for Ducati

The long tail

Launch bikes are always from the previous year, but even so, the bulbous tail of the Ducati is clear

Any doubt that this is last year’s bike can be removed by zooming in on the frame number

New Brembo brakes, narrow front aero below the wheel axle. Ducati occasionally use a much wider version

Front and rear: 2020 aero looks better in red

Black carbon fiber weave on the inside of the wings is gorgeous sponsoring the MotoGP team as well as the WorldSBK team

Cockpit details: neutral selection lever on the right hand side (note the date stamped on the bracket). But no thumb brake for Jack Miller

Big thumb brake paddle on the left for Pecco Bagnaia. Missing: the shapeshifter lever. Unless the neutral lever has been moved

Side view


The role which Michele Pirro has played in Ducati’s success simply cannot be overstated
