In a tweet to his fans, Valentino Rossi has unveiled one of the most eagerly anticipated new bikes ahead of its test this week in Sepang, Malaysia.

Both Ducati and Rossi are hoping this new bike will see them return to podium position during the 2012 season.

The 1000cc Ducati GP12 features a number of design changes in order to alleviate weight distribution issues which they believe will solve understeer issues that dogged both Rossi and team mate Hayden throughout the previous season.

The three day test kicks off in Sepang Tuesday 31st January 2012
