DesmoSport Ducati has lifted the covers off its indigenous livery to be used at this weekend’s fourth round of the 2023 Mi-Bike Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) in Darwin.

For 2023, DesmoSport Ducati has once again chosen to actively participate in the indigenous round, by learning more stories from the team’s home base on the Gold Coast, known as the Yugambeh Language Region, thanks to artist and performer Luther Cora.

“I obviously saw the bike last year with Luther’s artwork across it and learnt what it meant through the content, so to be a part of telling more of those stories this year is a privilege,” said DesmoSport Ducati rider Broc Pearson.

“I’ve spent my whole life living in this area so to learn more about the culture and history of the region, how the Aboriginal people interacted with each other and with the environment around them has been really interesting and I’m proud to ride with those stories, with Gwonda and the Aboriginal flag on the Panigale V4 R.”

The sole rider representing the DesmoSport Ducati team in 2023, Pearson enters the upcoming round this weekend at Hidden Valley determined to charge forward from P8 in the standings.
