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.

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.
