Are You the Ducati Desmosedici GP13?

Are You the Ducati Desmosedici GP13? | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

UPDATE: Nope, according to Italian TV’s Gudio Meda, it is a model built from leftover parts of the GP3 & GP7. For those picking out those design elements, good eye!

While the official launch of the Ducati Desmosedici GP13 is supposed to be tomorrow, the folks atGPinside have seemingly snagged this photo of the GP13 at the 2013 Wrooom event that Ducati co-hosts with Scuderia Ferrari. While the livery appears relative unchanged, there are several noticeable changes to the Desmosedici GP13, namely the skinnier tail section.

Our eyes also spot changes to the exhaust system, with a much shorter side-pipe, and what appears to be a larger undertail cannister. The fairings have also been refined from their previous shape, and give away a figure that’s longer than the GP12 (shown after the jump), with noticeably fewer side vents...

Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

Whatever it is, it's closer to the 1199 Panigale they showed last year.  Wrooom roll outs are a tough tradition to uphold, when the bike and team are in steep transition with a test looming....

No comment yet.
