1998 Ducati Superbike 996RS: They Don’t Get Much More Rare Than This!

Warning!

This post is in our archives. Links in this post have been updated to point to similar bikes available to bid on eBay.

One of two bikes used for the 1998 season by Troy Bayliss in the British Superbike Series. This bike has been in storage since 2000. Check out this eBayMotors auction for the bike that would eventually land him a ride in the World SuperBike series.

quote from seller’s eBayMotors listing:

Own a piece of history, Troy Bayliss # 32 GSE Racing 996RS. Bike has been in heated storage since 2000. We just got it out of storage and replaced the belts and serviced the bike to be ridden once again. Bike comes complete with all documentation including a letter of authenticity from Paolo Ciabatti Ducati Corse. Bike was purchased direct from GSE and imported into the USA. This Bayliss bike is as raced and is in perfect unmolested condition. This was the full JHP/GSE effort constructed for the 1998/1999 season with Troy as the pilot. Comes with roller started and all the paper work.

1998 #32 TROY BAYLISS DUCATI 996RS BRITISH SUPERBIKE FROM JOHN HACKET RACING TEAM

Collector race cars and bikes are not really an arena I’m well versed in, but one thing is for sure: It’s a very rare machine anyway, and it’s been ridden by Troy Bayliss. It’d look great parked under the Christmas tree I’m sure!
