    3 time World Superbike champion Troy Bayliss loves his scooters

    This week we were in the fortunate position of providing a scooter for 3 time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss. We were all a little star struck with Troy in the shop. Motorcycle manufacturers pay hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to have his backside on one of their products, in this instance Troy was paying for a ride.

    "I loved my scooter in Europe & need one for the Gold Coast" so we provided one of Australian motorcyclings greats with a scooter to fit his needs.

    On a personal note it was great to meet one of the true gentlemen of motorcycling. Everyone at Scooter HQ is a big fan of Troy Bayliss who is a great ambassador for anything two wheeled. We are especially grateful to Troy for allowing us to let the world know he loves his scooters but with three World Superbike titles under his belt he has nothing to prove.

    We all had a bit of a laugh when we jokingly asked what he'd do when he hears the inevitable taunt "Get a real bike", he just smiled. Imagine making that comment only to have the helmet visor lift to reveal the face of a 3 time world champion who has more than one specially made factory Ducati Motorcycle sitting in the garage.

    Nice work guys.  Now we just needs some pics of some serious corner speed from the SBK specialist.

     I wonder if he has a Malaguti Phantom F12R Bayliss replica (as pictured) in his garage. These were a limited edition at one stage, and nowdays they offer the Phantom F12R in SBK Ducati race team replica,and a MotoGP Cassy Stoner replica.

    Aprilia offer a SBK Max Biaggi Replica in the SR50's.

     

    God i love quality race style 50's like these! It's a damb shame we don't see all the models here in Australia.

    Yeah, an excellent choice of scooter Big Smile

    So tell us Brendon - did you sell it to him, or did he know that was what he was after?

    No but he knew of us Cool.

    Something solid, reliable, low emmission suitable for cycle pacing, dropping kids at school, shop runs etc - basically everything we use them for. The Daelim was the right tool for this job. This isn't just for the Daelim owners if there was any GP1's in stock it could have easily gone that way. Brand or choice of scooter is irrelevant & Daelim would have to pay to use the Troy Bayliss endorsement/brand. This is one for all scooter riders regardless of brand, especially any who have heard "get a real bike"

    Incidentally he did like the WSB Max Biaggi SR50R, Derbi GP1's, Sportcity, Scarabeo, Piaggio X7, Honda SH, etc. Then again he's into just about anything with two wheels. If the job was different more than likely the scoot would have been too.

    Yeah, thats cause we told him Wink    But really, that's excellent to get that recognition - a great customer to have on your books for all sorts of reasons.  

    And its good to hear that he's done his research, and you are right - given what he wants to use it for its ideal.  Great bragging rights!
