Proceeds Support Nicky Hayden Memorial Foundation
The 2019 Ducati Panigale V4 Nicky Hayden Tribute was announced a while back and was moved around to different tracks. The plan for the bike was for it to be auctioned off at the end of its tour round. That time is now. The bike is now up for auction.
The auction company Iconic Motorbikes has the bike up for auction right now and is waiving the buyer fee. This will help ensure that as much money as possible will go to the foundation. MotoCorsa, the company that built the bike, has set a reserve on the motorcycle. The company wants to recoup the costs that it took to build the bike, but beyond that amount, the money will go to the foundation.
The bike itself is a beautiful recreation Hayden’s 2013 MotoGP livery. It was all painstakingly painted. There are no decals on the bike it’s all paint, and that took amazing attention to detail. There are also some special equipment including an “Akrapovic Slip-on Exhaust, Ducati Performance V4R Dry Clutch Kit, BST ‘RapidTek’ Carbon-Fiber Wheels, Öhlins TTX Shock, Öhlins Road & Track Fork, Ducati Performance Race Seat, Ducati Performance Front & Rear Axle Slider Set, Futurismoto Mirror Block-Offs with Integrated Signals, Futurismoto Fender Eliminator with Integrated Signals, and a custom-etched triple clamp that’s numbered 001/001 and Nicky’s “69” logo,” according to the listing.
The auction ends September 24, 2019, which is tomorrow, so you better get over to Iconic Motorbike’s auction page and get signed up to bid. The current bid is at $24,750 at the time of this writing.
