As part of World Ducati Week 2018, 12 top class riders are going to be in an exclusive “Race Of Champions”, to be held at the “Marco Simoncelli” Misano World Circuit, in Italy.
Onboard Ducati Panigale V4 S bikes, each with custom livery, riders Andrea Dovizioso, Jorge Lorenzo, Danilo Petrucci, Jack Miller, Xavier Siméon (stepping in for injured Chaz Davies), Marco Melandri, Michael Rinaldi, Michele Pirro, Karel Abraham, Tito Rabat and Javier Fores, along with distinguished Ducati star Troy Bayliss, the twelve riders will challenge each other on their individual race-prepared V4’s for bragging rights on Saturday 21st July (local time).
The bikes will then go up for auction, for one week, closing on Saturday 27th July at 6pm. Auction website eBay will provide the means for the public to have their chance to own these very special machines, each coming with a plaque on the steering yoke, riders signature on the tank, and a certificate of authenticity signed by Claudio Domenicali, CEO of Ducati Motor Holding.
The bikes will come set up for the track, as ridden by the MotoGP and SBK stars, but will also be delivered to their new owners with original parts included to be made road legal. Ebay are set to feature a special theme in honour of the event, be sure to check out the auctions if you’d like to own one (or more!) of the twelve limited edition bikes!
