Ducati have honoured Troy Bayliss, their most successful champion to date, by releasing the 1098R Bayliss LE (Limited Edition).
Bayliss is unique for Ducati, in that he has won the WSB championship 3 times for the marque, on three different models namely 998R, 999R, and 1098R.
Technically this model is the same as the already high spec 1098R.
Only 500 examples of the LE will be built, each with a numbered plaque on the triple clamp.
The price has not yet been released, but you can expect to pay hansomely for such a special machine.
If you are planning to buy one, please ride it, even if it's just at the odd track day, don't put it in a glass case next to the bar...
