Three-time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss, won each of his titles aboard Ducatis, but each bike was an entirely different model. The first title in 2001 was on a 996, the second in 2006 was on a 999, and the third in 2008 was aboard a 1098. Bayliss may have been a four-time champ had it not been for a change to his bike’s frame in 2002, where Colin Edwards mounted an historic comeback to the championship, winning the title back from Bayliss at the aforementioned last round of the season at Imola.

    Ducati “won” all those championships because they rode with “concessions”. That’s rules advantages to the rest of us. That tends to PO the factories that spend bazillions only to race with the rules stacked against them. They won’t commit the big bucks unless there’s a level playing field. Let’s hope the same thing doesn’t happen in MotoGP.
