Ducati tests out the Desmosedici GP13

Wednesday, January 23 2013

Just a couple of days after the Desmosedici GP 13 was unveiled, it was in business on the Jerez track, with test riders Michele Pirro and Franco Battaini trying out the new bike’s controls and technology,

The Jerez test was the first of a few planned over the coming weeks, in order to get the bike ironed out and prepared for the 2013 MotoGP season. Unfortunately, as a result of the inclement weather, the complete schedule couldn’t go ahead, but nonetheless, the test-riders managed to get in a few worthwhile laps. Riders Andrea Dovizioso and Nicky Hayden will take the reins in a couple of weeks time for the next session in Sepang, with the first round of this year’s championship taking place in Qatar on April 7th.
