Ducati India has launched the limited-edition Panigale V2 Bayliss edition in our market. This new version of the Panigale V2 motorcycle retails at a premium price tag over the standard model. The changes over the standard motorcycle include different livery and better hardware.
The new Ducati Panigale V2 Bayliss is based on the standard Panigale V2 and thus retains its styling elements, such as a twin-pod headlight, muscular bodywork, rider-only seat, a single-sided swingarm, a compact exhaust canister, and a sharp tail section. The Bayliss edition features a unique livery that includes red base paint along with green and white coloured graphics. It also features Troy Bayliss’ race number 21 and his autograph on the fuel tank.
The mechanical specifications are similar to the standard Panigale V2 and the Bayliss edition retains the L-twin, liquid-cooled, 955cc motor that produces 152.9bhp of power at 10,750rpm and 104Nm of peak torque at 9,000rpm. The motor is linked to a six-speed gearbox. The Bayliss edition is three kilograms lighter which gives it a slightly better power-to-weight ratio. The lower weight has been achieved through lithium-ion battery and single-seater configuration. Do note that the passenger seat and footrests are available in the standard equipment.
The feature list includes a twin-pod projector LED headlamp, an LED taillight, eyebrow-style DRL, auto-off indicators, a quick shifter, and carbon fibre and titanium silencer outlet cover. The electronic aids include three riding modes (Race, Sport, and Street), Bosch Cornering ABS, Ducati Traction Control, Engine Brake Control, Power Modes, Ducati Wheelie Control, and Auto Tyre Calibration. The 4.3-inch colour TFT instrument cluster shows riding data, GPS module, multimedia options, lap timer, and anti-theft alert.
The hardware on the Bayliss edition includes Öhlins NIX30 43mm adjustable inverted front forks and Öhlins TTX36 fully-adjustable rear monoshock to handle the suspension tasks. The anchoring setup comprises 320mm dual semi-floating discs with Brembo monoblock callipers at the front and a 245mm single disc at the rear. The 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels are wrapped in Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa ll tyres.
