Some People Have a Motorbike Named After Them: Ducati 998 Bayliss in Germany

{note: Please join me in welcoming Claudio to the team. He is our new European contributor and has a great selection of bikes for sale in the EU this week starting with this Bayliss edition 998. -dc}

Ducati was among the first motorbike makers to identify some of their models with the initials of a great rider of them. As an example we can recall the early MH= Mike Hailwood replicas. And so went on the tradition...Here is a rare (model Nr. 201/400) Ducati 998 S Bayliss special edition:

Mr. Troy can actually count one additional model with his name tag the modern 1098 R:

Along side the more rare Ben Bostrom replica pictured below:

The 998S Bayliss was a limited edition featuring common equipment with the S models such as Ohlins fornt fork. Unlike the 996 R which used the latest engine step (often then found on the new bike replacing the old version), carbon fairing etc. the Bayliss replica is closer to the standard 998 model apart form the color scheme which replicates one to one the bike used in WSBK races. As all the numbered Ducatis these models are sought after by collectors, hence don't expect a chap buy. The conditions of this sample seem very good as you can see for yourself:

Apart from the tiny LED turn lights the bike is in standard condition and it comes with a set of Termignoni (included in the special versions of Ducatis), a signed certificate plate and a rear stand.

With less than 10.000km this is a pretty new bike. Good luck with the bidding.
