It was 21 years ago since Ducati introduced the legendary Troy Bayliss. To the world through his debut on a Superbike World Championship.

The Australian rider would go on to become one of the most successful riders in Ducati’s history. Winning three World Championships with the iconic brand.

To celebrate the date of his first WSBK race, as well as the fact that he won all three of his titles on a Ducati.


Ducati has decided to open an exhibit dedicated to Bayliss at their museum from May 21 until September 19 2021.

The exhibition will feature artefacts such as his motorcycles, one of his racing bikes and his 2005 World Superbike Championship trophy.

Museum Exhibit

Guests attending the museum can also see Bayliss’ 2001 WSBK championship-winning bike.

The motorcycle exhibition includes the 996 Factory 2000 that Bayliss was on in place of Carl Fogerty. Further, in 2001, the 996 Factory captured his first WSBK title knocking Colin Edwards at Assen.

Edwards and Bayliss were two serious competitors when they went neck to neck at Imola. 2002 998 Factory Testastretta that Bayliss used against Edwards too is on display.

Later Bayliss entered the MotoGP.However, he had to come back again to WSBK as he did not do well in MotoGP.

Troy Bayliss is an iconic motorcycle racer in the history of Ducati. The Australian rider has many victories and has had a chance to compete on the highest level.

This Ducati Troy Bayliss exhibit is a rare opportunity for fans to get up-close with some of his most memorable Ducati motorcycles. Along with trophies, items from his toughest races, fan artwork and magazine covers.

The Bayliss exhibit is a great piece and an example of a fantastic museum collection. It’s also a reminder of just how rare bike exhibits are compared to the car world.

Ducati did this right and used its collection to show off that success, as well as the technology behind it all.

However, from July 1 to July 4 2021, Ducati will move the motorcycles to Modena for the Motor Valley Fest.
