A special motorcycle, manufactured in a numbered series, the pure expression of Ducati sportsmanship and a tribute to a timeless passion.
Based on the Panigale V2, this version is made unique by the special livery, inspired by the 996 R on which Bayliss won his very first world championship title in 2001, and by the prestigious Öhlins components, that bring the track performance of the Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary to a whole new level.
52 wins, 94 podiums and 3 World Superbike Championships: the Ducati-Bayliss pair was one of the most successful in the motorsports world. His name along with the racing performances of this Australian have made an indelible imprint in the heart of all the Ducatists, and the perfect match between Ducati and “Baylisstic” has been rekindled to produce this celebration motorcycle, manufactured in a numbered series, whose graphic details and name were chosen working side by side.
The Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Campionship 20th Anniversary is powered by the 955 cm³ twin cylinder Superquadro engine. It is a Euro 5 model, delivering a maximum power of 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and maximum torque of 104 Nm at 9,000 rpm to guarantee full scale Ducati emotions and performance.
Compared to the Panigale V2, the Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary is 3 kg lighter, thanks to the use of a lithium-ion battery and the choice to adopt a single-seater configuration that explicitly recalls the look of the renowned racing bike.
The Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary is characterised by its special celebration livery, inspired by the 996 R bike that accompanied Bayliss during his conquest of his first world title in 2001.
Ducati red is the main colour of the bike, and it joins green and white in a tribute to the Italian spirit of the Bologna-based motorcycle manufacturer, while the iconic #21, Troy Bayliss' race number, and the Shell logo, which visually strengthen the link with the racing bike, stand out on the sides and front. Troy's autograph is reproduced on the fuel tank, while the billet aluminium triple clamp shows the name of the bike and the progressive numbering of this unique model.
