Only 500 Testastretta-powered 996Rs were built by Ducati at the beginning of 2001, with the sole purpose of meeting homologation requirements for the 2001 Superbike World Championship, which Troy Bayliss won riding the 996R.

All 350 customer versions of the 996R sold out within six hours on launch day via the internet, at a common worldwide price of 26,000 Euros. Exchange rates at the time made the 996R a heady $A52,000 Down Under (including Australia's 10 percent GST) not including on-road costs.

Another 150 bikes in 2001's total production run of 500 were held back by the Italian factory for special allocation (eg Australian market), competition (eg Troy Bayliss, Ben Bostrom and Ruben Xaus), development and promotional use.

Amazingly, despite Australia's small market relative to the rest of the motorcycle world, 40 of those 350 customer versions 996Rs made it Down Under.

The Ducati 996R is in effect a road-legal version of the bike which won the 2001 Superbike World Championship. It's not just a cosmetic replica, or an up-spec'd base-model 996. It is a factory racer with lights, and the closest thing to a full-on works racer that money could buy.
