Update: The owner has informed us this bike has sold. Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc
Our latest featured listing is from Scott in Maryland with his 2002 Ducati 998S Bayliss edition. The 998 debuted in 2002 and features the “Testastretta engine” which would go on to power the 999 series and was previously seen in the 996R. The S model got a horsepower bump over the standard issue as well as Ohlins suspension and carbon bits all over.
With such low mileage and living room storage time, this example looks to be in excellent shape as you can tell from the pictures (click each for hi-resolution).
from the seller:
I am ready to part with my 2002 Ducati 998S Bayliss. I am the original owner of this collectible beauty. Only 400 were made for the world to commemorate Troy Bayliss winning the World Superbike Championship in 2001. My bike has been ridden very sparingly. Everything about the bike is 100% original. It has all of 1500 miles on it. The Bayliss is a 998S edition with carbon fiber bits and Ohlins. Comes with special cover, stand, and plaque. This bike has been part of my collection for more than a decade. It has always been stored inside (garage and living room). Asking $17,500. Located in Maryland.
For those not familiar, the Bayliss edition was tribute to Troy Bayliss who won the World Superbike Championship in 2001 for Ducati. Here he is in action that year:
And I suspect that’s exactly how you’d feel every time you find your favorite back road on this one. Good luck to buyers and seller!
