Ducati Panigale V4s to eBay
With World Ducati Week 2018 throttling into the Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli this weekend (July 20-22), the Borgo Panigale manufacturer is set to put 12 special Panigale V4 S superbikes on the block.
But not before some racing; the V4s will be used by by Ducati’s most notorious riders – including Troy Bayliss – during a special Race of Champions on Saturday, July 21. The race will be broadcast live on the Sky Sport Italia satellite channel, which is dedicated to MotoGP.
The riders are:
- Andrea Dovizioso
- Jorge Lorenzo
- Danilo Petrucci
- Jack Miller
- Chaz Davies
- Marco Melandri
- Michael Rinaldi
- Michele Pirro
- Karel Abraham
- Tito Rabat
- Jordi Fores
- Troy Bayliss
Following the race, each bike – all special one-offs – will be available for purchase via eBay auction.
To accompany this special sale, eBay is setting up a Ducati Store with a Race of Champions theme.
Ducati says a plaque on the steering yoke will show the rider’s name and race number. His autograph will be written in indelible ink on the tank before the race gets under way. A certificate of authenticity, signed directly by Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding, will give the purchase added value.
The bikes also feature a series of special components used during the Race of Champions and a complete set of original parts, exhausts included, required for legal road use.
