Robb Report's 21 Ultimate Gifts: Bayliss' Bike

Sheila J. Gibson

Troy Bayliss, one of the most successful motorcycle racers ever to tear around a track, rode a Ducati 998 Factory 01 bike to victory during the 2001 World Superbike Championship. Well, to be precise, he actually rode two such bikes during the season. One of the Ducatis—each of which features a 998cc Testastretta engine that can produce 176 hp at 12,000 rpm and a top speed of 186 mph—will remain his, as a trophy commemorating his feat. The other one could be yours, along with a set of custom-fitted Dainese racing leathers and a Suomy helmet sporting the same colors and graphics that appear on Bayliss’ helmet. You will also have the opportunity to visit the Ducati headquarters and museum in Bologna, Italy, where you will share a lunch with the
champion.

Price: $200,000.
Contact: Ducati, +39.051.6413326,  paolo.ciabatti@ducati.com

The price includes the cost of shipping the bike to your home, but it does not cover customs expenses and import duties applied to shipments outside of Europe. Lodging for two in Italy is included, but transportation there is not.
