Now, though, Bayliss has announced that he will be on the factory Ducati 1199 Panigale at the totally new and unknown Chang International Circuit in Thailand, for the March 22 second round of the Superbike World Championship. As Bayliss himself commented: "I'm really excited to be able to ride the Panigale R again and I thank the Aruba-Ducati Superbike Team for the opportunity. It will be great to work with the team again. Compared to the Phillip Island round, organized pretty much at the last minute, this time I've had the chance to train and prepare myself properly. I'm really motivated and feeling ready. I can't wait to get back on track!"
