After the great successes of the last two seasons, in which two Riders’ World Championships with Francesco Bagnaia and two Manufacturers’ Championships were earned in MotoGP and, in Superbikes, two Riders’ Championships with Alvaro Bautista, Riello UPS will proudly continue the long-standing partnership with Ducati on both a sporting and technological level.
In 2024, Riello UPS will see its branding on the front fairing of the Borgo Panigale reds, on the riders’ suits (Francesco Bagnaia and Enea Bastianini in MotoGP, and Alvaro Bautista and the new Nicolò Bulega in WorldSBK) and on the team clothing.
