Ducati Alstare team is ready for the first pre-season testing at Phillip Island, said goodbye to Suzuki and just introduced Superbike Ducati 1199 Panigale R, in which Carlos Checa and Ayrton Badovini will be racing in the upcoming season.
Alstare Panigale color design includes classic Ducati red with white elements. Also the bike has a logo of the four sponsors: Energy Trading International (Italian Energy Company, which also supports Andrea Yannone in MotoGP), FIAMM Group (batteries), FICC (energy drink) and TIM (the telephone company).
Francis Batta said that “One can only rejoice and look to the future with optimism. We have a great team, a motorcycle-level two class racer, friendly staff and sponsors who will support us throughout the season. Future competition will not be easy, but thanks to the partners and the trust Ducati team will find the strength and motivation. I thank all those who believe in us. We will do everything in our power.”
