Located in Weston, Massachusetts, is this Troy Bayliss limited edition Ducati 998S. Unlike the one we posted the other day, this one has been ridden albeit sparingly having covered just 6300 miles. While I realize we've been on a bit of tear with these as of late, 916/996/998 prices are on the rise and the limited edition bikes, even if just sticker specials, lead the pack of standards just behind the R bikes. Not to mention they are incredibly stunning to look at while paying tribute to one of Ducati's most favored racers in recent history. This example has an opening bid just shy of $10k with no bidders at current and over 5 days remaining.
from the seller:
I am selling my rare 2002 Ducati 998S Troy Bayliss Limited Edition Replica motorcycle. This bike is numbered 366 from a limited production run of 400. In addition to standard parts the machine features a full Termignoni sports exhaust system, and slipper clutch. The machine was last serviced (at a cost of $2,527.56) in August 2011 by Superbike Italia when the milage was 5,804. In addition to the full 6,000 mile service the timing belts were replaced as was the rear chain and sprocket, and a new battery fitted. The suspension also received a full service with replacement springs and fork fluid. The machine is in excellent condition and has never been raced, dropped or damaged and has lived in a garage since new. I am the third owner. The bike comes with a clear title (Massachusetts), keys, owners manual, rear paddock stand and an autographed plaque by Troy himself.
