DUCATI CORSE unveiled the 2010 Desmosedici GP10 racer earlier this week, and here are some studio shots of the gorgeous 220bhp brute.

The bike was unveiled in Italy at a press conference by Ducati's MotoGP bigwig Claudio Domenicali. The team boss explained that the new racer should be easier to ride that previous incarnations of the Desmosedici; design engineers have been working on how to make the GP10 less twitchy and more tractable.

This has to rate as one of the best-looking racers ever.
