MotoGP Bike Launches Approach: Ducati On Monday 15th January, Yamaha Wednesday 25th January

With the first MotoGP test in Sepang less than two weeks away, the factories are preparing by launching their bikes and introducing their liveries. So far, only two factories - Ducati and Yamaha - have announced dates, but more should follow soon.

First up is Ducati, who are launching their 2018 MotoGP campaign in the factory headquarters in Bologna, as they have done for the past five years. The launch starts at 10:30am CET on Monday, 15th January. It will be streamed live via internet, and you can find a link to the presentation on Ducati's Youtube channel. The link will also allow you to set a reminder.

The Movistar Yamaha team is to follow suit, on Wednesday, 24th January, immediately before flying out to Sepang for the start of the first test. The Yamaha launch is to be held in Madrid, at the Matadero Madrid center for contemporaneous arts. That presentation starts at 11am CET, though no details of live streaming have been announced yet.

We will be at the Ducati launch in Bologna. Make sure you follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for extra details and live coverage from there.
