Ducati has officially unveiled the new livery for its MotoGP racebike ahead of the upcoming MotoGP season. And we must say its white, grey and red livery looks very handsome. However, hold your horses for now - the bike used in the photos is a 2017 model and not the newer 2018 one. The bike which will be ridden by Andrea Dovizioso and Jorge Lorenzo in this season of MotoGP is still a tightly guarded secret for now.

According to reports, Ducati is expected to reveal its 2018 edition of the Desmosedici GP bike at its Qatar debut, just ahead of the 2018 MotoGP Championship season opener. However, there is a high possibility that the Italian marquee might surprise us with the new GP18 machine at the Sepang testing later this month, Ducati having used a modified GP17 at Valencia and Jerez last November.

Last year's runner-up Andrea Dovizioso was all praises for the livery. He said, "It is absolutely stunning, so beautiful. Every single bike I had the possibility to ride was beautiful but this has something different - we have added some grey, even more aggressive, even more stunning."

Dovizioso will enter the 2018 campaign as a favourite after last year's breakthrough campaign, which saw him taking the championship fight to Marc Marquez till the final race. Jorge Lorenzo, on the other hand, struggled initially but regained some momentum later in the season to look comfortable on the Ducati. With this, the Italian brand will certainly be a strong contender to win the championship next season.

The upcoming season will get underway, with the first round of pre-season testing scheduled for the end of this month, in Malaysia. It will be followed by two more tests schedules before the opening race in Qatar, in March.
