Troy Bayliss, Claudio Domenicali and Davide Tardozzi present a new chapter in a highly successful story.
Born to celebrate
The new Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary celebrates one of the most successful riders of all time and the symbol of an entire community: Troy Bayliss. 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.
On the occasion of the launch of the new Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary, the champion from Taree talks about his indissoluble bond with Ducati: from his relationship with the twin-cylinder bikes to his fans, from the origin of the number 21 to the first victories of his son Oli on the Panigale V4 R.
Riding mode: never give up.
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 imprint of the champion
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.
As if it has just come out of the pits
The track spirit of the Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary bike is also expressed in the prestigious Öhlins components: the fork, steering damper and rear shock absorber allow a much higher performance on the track, in addition to giving the bike an even more sporty look.
