About DesmoSport Ducati

The DesmoSport Ducati team was formed in 2016 by the 2001/2006/2008 World Superbike champion Troy Bayliss and former Australian Superbike racer, Ben Henry. 

The team, based out of Cube Performance Centre on the Gold Coast, competes in the Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) against Australia’s, and some of the world’s, best Superbike racers. Bryan Staring joins DesmoSport Ducati for 2022 aboard the Ducati Panigale V4 R superbike, as Oli Bayliss graduates to race in the World SuperSport Championship. 

ASBK rules result in very few mechanical changes to the standard Ducati Panigale V4 R apart from a full titanium exhaust, advanced Ohlins suspension package and advanced electronic management via a Magneti Marelli ECU.
