Ducati Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary Enters Production

The limited run of the Ducati Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary has entered the production phase, as confirmed by the Italian firm.

The special edition Panigale V2 was built to pay homage to Troy Bayliss careers at the Superbike World Championship.

The Panigale V2 is characterized by the combination of livery and graphics inspired by the 996 R that helped Bayliss clinched his maiden win in the 2001 WSBK.

According to Ducati, since the official presentation at WSBK in Assen, the company has received tons of orders, already covering a large part of the production for the coming months.

To better enhance performance on the track, the V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary is fitted with Öhlins NX30 front fork and TTX36 rear shock absorbers.

Moreover, adopting a lithium-ion battery and a single-seat configuration allows the bike to shed off 3 kilograms of weight.

Troy’s number 21 is added on the saddle in white alongside a red and green stripe that makes up the Italian flag.
