Ducati MotoGP to Unveil GP12 on Facebook


2012 Ducati MotoGP Livery Launch

If fans of Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden are up early enough on the East Coast, or had a late night on the West Coast, the Ducati Team is streaming a live online presentation in coordination with the TIM (Telecom Itali Mobile) Facebook page.

During the online presentation, which will be on TIM’s Facebook page at 7 a.m. EDT Monday, March 19, Rossi and Hayden will be together with the Ducati Team as they unveil the Desmosedici GP12 in its 2012 MotoGP livery.

For Americans, the TIM Facebook page is structured in Italian, but the video will be easy to navigate.

The online presentation will be the first time Rossi and Hayden’s GP12 prototypes will be displayed in 2012 MotoGP livery; for the first two official MotoGP tests in Sepang, the Ducati GP12s donned black body work.

The first outing with the new livery will be at the final MotoGP test of 2012 at Jerez March 23-25.
