Watch Ducati unveil its 2021 MotoGP challenger at its official season launch event live on Autosport.

The Italian manufacturer is the first factory team and the second squad on the grid after its satellite outfit Avintia to pull the wraps off of its new-look motorcycles ahead of the 2021 season.

The reigning MotoGP constructors’ champions come into the 2021 season with an all-new line-up at its factory squad, with one-time race winner Jack Miller stepping up from Pramac alongside Francesco Bagnaia.

Miller scored four podiums on his Pramac-run GP20 last season on his way to seventh in the standings, while a maiden rostrum in an injury-hit campaign put Bagnaia 16th in the championship.

Ducati was a double race-winner in the chaotic 2020 season, with Andrea Dovizioso guiding his Desmosedici to victory in the Austrian Grand Prix, while Danilo Petrucci came out on top in a wet French GP.

The Italian marque’s riders’ world championship-less spell has extended to 13 seasons since Casey Stoner’s 2007 triumph, which Ducati will be hoping to end in 2021 with its youthful line-up.

Ducati’s launch presentation begins at 3pm UK time.
