A unique Panigale. Twin cylinder. Baylisstic.
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 Bayliss has been rekindled to produce this celebration motorcycle, manufactured in a numbered series, whose graphic details and name were chosen working side by side.
Compared to the standard version, the Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary is also 3 kg lighter, thanks to the adoption of a lithium-ion battery and the choice of the single-seater configuration that explicitly recalls the look of the racing bike (passenger seat and footrests are available in the equipment supplied).
The equipment is completed by the sport grips, the silencer outlet cover in carbon fibre and titanium and the rider seat made by combining two different technical materials with double red stitching. Troys number 21 is embroidered in white on the saddle and, together with the green and red bands, makes up the Italian flag. The motorcycle is also equipped with self-cleaning brake and clutch pumps with smoke grey oil tanks.
The Panigale V2 is the super-mid of Ducati sports bikes and represents the entry model to the Panigale family. It is powered by the 955 cc Superquadro twin-cylinder unit (Euro 5 compliant), with a maximum power of 155 hp at 10,750 rpm and a maximum torque of 104 Nm at 9,000 rpm. The chassis is based on the monocoque frame, while the elegant and sporty design is inspired by that of the Panigale V4.
The electronic package, dedicated to active safety and vehicle dynamics control, includes the «»cornering»» function applied to Bosch ABS, the electronic quick shift that also works when downshifting and traction, engine brake and wheelie controls (Ducati Quick Shift, Ducati Traction Control, Ducati Wheelie Control, Engine Brake Control). All the controls are integrated into the three Riding Modes (Race, Sport and Street) that can be modified using the 4.3″» colour TFT dashboard with graphics and interface designed to make menu navigation and settings adjustment intuitive, as well as immediate identification of the selected Riding Mode
The track spirit of the Panigale V2 Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary bike is also expressed in the prestigious Øhlins 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.
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 track alignment of the bike used in the racing season (passenger seat and footpegs are available upon request).
