They may not have managed a single victory this year, but Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali says the target for 2016 is two race wins.
General manager Gigi Dall'Igna's goal ahead of the 2015 was a MotoGP victory, but while they came close on several occasions, finishing runner-up in five races, they could get to the top of the podium.
Andrea Dovizioso came closest in Qatar, missing out by just 0.174s.
"We must win at least two [races]. We got very close, making some very beautiful races, but the competition is very strong," Domenicali said.
"MotoGP is the highest level, but the objectives will not change: we need to improve."
Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone will again spearhead their challenge in the new year.
Asked if there was any truth to speculation that former champion and new test rider Casey Stoner may do some wild-card races next season, Domenicali said that was "not in our plans".
Ducati haven't won a MotoGP race since 2010.
