Ducati has uncovered their MotoGP bike for the 2021 campaign, and announced technology company Lenovo as a new title sponsor.
In an online presentation, the Italian team revealed the Desmosedici GP21 bike, which will take to the 2021 grid with the aim of retaining the Constructors’ Title and fighting for the Riders’ Championship.
The team will now be known as Ducati Lenovo Team, after it was announced during the presentation that technology company Lenovo will strengthen its relationship with the Bologna-based team and become the title sponsor.
This year’s bike keeps the sharp red colour that has been prominent on the Ducati in recent seasons, however much of the black, white and grey has disappeared.
In a press release, Luigi Dall’Igna, General Manager of Ducati Corse, said: “The start of a new season is always a special moment, and this year even more, as we have a completely new team.
“We have two new riders with us, Jack Miller and Pecco Bagnaia.
“Both are extraordinarily talented, they’re young, but they have already a lot of experience on our bike.
“Jack and Pecco have great potential, and I think that together we can fight not only to defend the Constructors’ Title won in 2020, but we can also aim for the Riders’ Title.”
With a new title sponsor in the form of Lenovo, Ducati will have access to a higher amount of technology in order to continue their fight at the front of the grid.
Speaking on the Lenovo announcement, Dall’Igna believes the partnership can help the Italian team achieve good results in 2021.
“From 2021 we will also be able to count on even greater support from Lenovo, which has been our partner since 2018 and with whom we have worked very well together over the past few seasons,” he said.
“I’m sure that together we will be able to achieve even greater success this year while entertaining and bringing excitement to all the Ducatisti around the world.”
The next teams to unveil their 2021 liveries will be KTM and Tech3, on February 12.
