How have MotoGP teams coped with the wing ban?

Ducati wing fairing

Ducati unveiled their latest fairing design at the Moto GP pre-season tests in Qatar at the weekend after a ban had been put on having external wings. Ducati waited until half way through the second day of testing to bring out their latest design, which features four outer wings that are combined to make a “square shape”. Ducati have struggled with the wing ban and have done everything in their power to somehow keep them on the bike without breaking the rules, and it looks as though they have done just that.

Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, and Aprilia had all already revealed their new fairing design before Ducati, so the question is whether or not some of the other teams will follow in Ducati’s footsteps and opt for a similar fairing or if they’ve got some surprises up their sleeves.
