New looks new style, but we always can meet the original Rossi colors, shiny/bright green colors on the front side/number, Desmosedici GP12 also comes with many of colors combination such as Red, White, Black and Green. Well, I hope they will give a real performance in the next race, caused if I have to tell the truth, I haven't satisfied about this team and of course Ducati GP12 bike when the 1st MotoGP race in action, the performance problem between Rossi and Ducati actually can we see in the 2011, but it's looks Ducati and Rossi need more times to handle their problem until today. Good luck for Ducati and teams, and please fight back your rivals in MotoGP. Enjoy.
