2002 Ducati 998S Troy Bayliss #393

In Italy, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

2002 was the first year of the 998, which featured an all new Testastretta motor that produced 123 horsepower (up 11 from the 996). Ducati offered the base 998, the 998S, and the 998R. The middle-of-the-road “S” model got an Ohlins shock and steering damper, carbon fiber belly pan, revised brake calipers, and color-matched mirrors.

That same year, Ducati released two race replicas based on the 998S – one of Ben Bostrom’s bike, and one of Troy Bayliss’. 400 examples were built of the latter, which commemorated Troy’s 2001 WSBK championship. Upgrades for the Bayliss replica obviously included the custom livery, but it also came with Ohlins forks, more carbon fiber bodywork, and upgraded Brembo four-pot front brake calipers.

This example (VIN: ZDM1SB5V12B020591) is #393 of 400 and the odometer shows 2,659 miles. It has a tremendous amount of extras (though all stock parts are included): Termignoni exhaust, Brembo RCS Corsa Corta brake and clutch master cylinders, Brembo race calipers, EVR dry clutch, Corsa Garage carbon fiber clutch cover, Bonamici Racing adjustable rearsets (reverse shift pattern), Ducabike ride height adjustment, OZ Racing Piega forged alumnium wheels w/ Michelin Power RS tires from 2017, Superlite quick change sprocket lightweight kit w/cush drive and D.I.D. chain, and Ducabike rear hub hardware.

The sale includes the World Dealer Guide, Owner’s Manual, wiring diagram, and the plaque.
