Rossi Reveals Ducati Desmosedici GP12
Valentino Rossi has released the first photograph of the factory Ducati Desmosedici GP12 ahead of the MotoGP pre-season test at Malaysia’s Sepang circuit.
The Doctor and Ducati teammate Nicky Hayden will test the GP12 alongside the other MotoGP teams and their race bikes this week to prepare for the upcoming 2012 season.

Expect a full announcement from Ducati about the Desmosedici’s features in the next few days.
