Today, on the 150th anniversary of Italy's Unity, Ducati joins all Italian people of the world in the celebration of this important anniversary.
As a tribute to this anniversary of our country, and as proud ambassadors of Italy, Ducati has accepted the invitation from the Italian Republic President to place the logo celebrating this 150-year anniversary on the bikes of Valentino Rossi and Nicky Hayden. During the entire 2011 MotoGP season, the Desmosedici GP11 will bring the unity message represented by the three tricolore flags to racetracks all over the world.
On this important day, the spotlights will shine on the MotoGP Championship. Also Valentino Rossi, the icon of Italian motorcycle racing and Team Ducati MotoGP official rider, celebrates together with all Italians, despite being far from his homeland.
