Pramac Racing, the Ducati satellite team, has unveiled its new livery for the 2023 MotoGP season, which will be raced by Johann Zarco and Jorge Martin. The new livery features a combination of purple, red, and white colors.
The purple color, which was the dominant color on the team’s Desmosedicis last year, has now been reduced and the traditional Pramac red and white colors are more prominent.
The Pramac Racing team had not had a title sponsor for two seasons, but last year, the insurance agency Prima joined the team as a sponsor. This resulted in the team’s motorcycles, the Desmosedicis, being primarily colored purple.
However, for the 2023 livery, the amount of purple on the lower part of the bike has been reduced and the traditional Pramac red and white colors are more prominent.
Last season, Pramac Racing was the leading satellite team and finished fourth in the teams’ championship. However, their riders, Johann Zarco and Jorge Martin did not have as successful seasons as they had hoped.
Zarco dropped from fifth to eighth in the riders’ standings, and Martin was not able to repeat his 2021 rookie season’s race-winning performance, finishing ninth. Despite this, Zarco and Martin both stood on the podium four times each.
Johann Zarco, who is 32 years old and now one of the oldest riders on the grid, will continue to aim for his debut MotoGP victory after finishing as runner-up on ten occasions.

He has had several near misses, including falling from the lead at Silverstone last season and choosing not to risk contact with Francesco Bagnaia in the closing stages of the wet Buriram race.
Zarco stated, “I am very excited to be riding in these colors again for another season. I believe that we have a great team, a great bike, and a good relationship with my teammate Jorge. I believe we have everything we need for a successful season and maybe, just maybe, we’ll be able to secure a victory.”
Jorge Martin will continue to work on turning his speed into consistency and also aim to become the first satellite rider to win the MotoGP championship. Despite being overlooked by the official Ducati team, Martin is being considered as a potential candidate for the factory Yamaha ride alongside Fabio Quartararo for 2024.
He said, “Last year was a special year, with very difficult moments too, but it served for me to grow and become stronger. I have big plans and real ambitions, and together with my team I know we can do great things. I’ll know if all the hard work of the winter break was worth it when I get on my Ducati in Sepang. We’re ready! I’m, ready!”
In addition to the new livery, Pramac Racing has also announced a new team manager for the 2023 season. Gino Borsoi, who was previously with the Aspar team, has been brought on to take over from Francesco Guidotti, who joined KTM at the end of 2021.
