Ducati Panigale V2 Troy Bayliss Anniversary edition launched

The special edition Panigale V2 is inspired by the championship-winning 2001 Ducati 996 R.

Ducati has launched the Panigale V2 Troy Bayliss 1st Championship 20th Anniversary edition in India. The bike is available in limited numbers and is priced at Rs. 21.30 lakh (ex-showroom).

The special edition Panigale V2 celebrates Troy Bayliss' first World SBK title. Exactly 20 years ago, the legendary Australian rider won the 2001 Superbike World Championship on a Ducati 996 R.

The anniversary edition Panigale V2 is characterized by the special livery inspired by the 996 R. It features Ducati red as the main colour with green and white as a tribute to the Italy-based bike maker. The bike also features the Bayliss' race number - 21 and the racer's autograph on the fuel tank.

This Panigale V2 is equipped with Ohlins NX30 front forks and a TTX35 rear mono-shock. The bike is 3 kg lighter thanks to the single-seat configuration and lithium-ion battery. It is powered by a 955cc twin-cylinder engine that produces 153 BHP @ 10,750 rpm and 104 Nm @ 9,000 rpm.
