Components from the Ducati Demosedici GP16 MotoGP bike have been added to Ducati’s memorabilia collection.

The components list from the GP16 that have been newly added to the Ducati memorabilia collection for 2023 includes the exhaust camshaft, intake camshaft, connecting rod, and piston - all original components from Ducati’s 2016 Grand Prix prototype.

Each component comes with a price arguably worthy of their origin. Either of the camshafts will cost €1,000 (£862.90 at time of writing, 29 June 2023), while the connecting rod is €800 (£690.32 at time of writing), and the piston €700 (£604.03 at time of writing).

Each component will come in a box with a certificate of authenticity signed by Ducati CEO, Claudio Domenicali, and Ducati Corse General Manager, Gigi Dall’Igna. Additionally, a description of the component will be included, which itself will feature the rider the bike to which the component belonged was ridden by, in which race, and the finishing position in that race.

All four GP16 components, as well as the rest of the Ducati memorabilia range, can be viewed on the Ducati website.

The Desmosedici GP16 proved a pivotal bike in the history of Ducati in MotoGP. Its immediate predecessor, the GP15, was the first to have its design led by the aforementioned Dall’Igna, and can be seen as the origin from which the dominant and title-winning (in the hands of Francesco Bagnaia) GP22 was derived.

The GP16 itself became the first Ducati to win a MotoGP race since Casey Stoner at the Valencian Grand Prix of 2010 when Andrea Iannone triumphed over his then-teammate, Andrea Dovizioso, at the 2016 Austrian Grand Prix. 

Dovizioso himself would go on to win in the wet Malaysian Grand Prix at the penultimate round of 2016, before challenging for the championship in 2017, to be denied only by Honda’s Marc Marquez.
