Madonna di Campiglio (Italy) 15 January 2013 – Ducati Team MotoGP racers Andrea Dovizioso and Nicky Hayden were the stars of the second day at Wrooom 2013, the traditional Press Ski Meeting that takes place at Madonna di Campiglio until Friday 18 January. Today the two riders met with international media in the first scheduled press conference, which opened with a welcome from Ducati Motor Holding CEO Gabriele Del Torchio, who presented the new Ducati Corse staff....

Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

We look forward to Wrooom (pronounced Vroom) because it traditionally includes the unveiling of the team's new look and colors as well as the media's chance to speak to the riders now all officially under contract to Ducati (most contracts end on Dec.31 and preclude the riders from commenting on anything relating to "next years job" if it's with a different manufacturer)

2012 in review – Stoner retires! Rossi leaves! Ducati sold! OMG Justin Bieber buys an 848! | Ducati.net

2012 in review – Stoner retires! Rossi leaves! Ducati sold! OMG Justin Bieber buys an 848! | Ducati.net | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Our first year of Ductalk.com has now come to an end and in reflection, I don’t remember a year when there was more to write about in the Ducati world and that’s coming from somebody that bought her first Ducati 23 years ago.  In that regard, our timing to start Ductalk was lucky, because few days came and went without something worthy of mention.  Bombshell announcements (Stoner retires! Rossi leaves! Ducati sold! Justin Bieber buys an 848!) were the monthly norm. And the images? Well, I doubt there will ever be another rider and bike combination more beautiful at rest or speed than the spectacular colors in combination of Ducati, Rossi and Drudi....

Are You the Ducati Desmosedici GP13?

Are You the Ducati Desmosedici GP13? | Desmopro 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...

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....
