Nicky grew up in his hometown,  one of five children. From an early age he was impressed with motorbikes, which he then transferred to his brothers who also became motorcycle racers, Tommy, who is three years older than Nicky and Roger Lee, who is two years younger.
As he grew older his interest increased, and soon he joined the Central Motorcycle Roadracing Association, the youngest racer there, and in almost every race he started from last place,; additionally, someone from his family or crew would help him make a start, holding his bike upright since he couldn`t reach the ground. However, Nicky was talented from day one, and soon enough progressed to AMA Supersport, and in 1999 won the championship. In 2001 he raced full-time, and in 2002 he became the youngest AMA Superbike Champion, which only increased his net worth.

After that successful season, he joined Repsol Honda in the MotoGP Championship, becoming teammate to none other than multi-world champion Valentino Rossi. In his first season, Nicky had a quite successful year, finishing in fifth place overall, which earned him the Rookie of the Year award. The next season was somewhat devastating for Hayden, as he was heavily criticized but still finished the season as No. 8. In 2005 he recorded his first victory, at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, and he finished the season at No. 3 in the standings. The following year was his most successful in his entire career; he won two races and had 10 podium finishes, which earned him first place at the end of the season, besting Valentino Rossi who was in the lead before the last race, but who unfortunately crashed on the fifth lap. He raced two more years for Repsol Honda, but he couldn`t even come close to the success from 2006 year, as he finished 8th and 6th respectively, but still accumulated a respectable income.

In 2009, he joined the Ducati Marlboro Team and rode with them until 2014, but without any major success.

In 2014, Nicky joined Drive M7 Aspar and finished the season as 16th best racer, but the next year was even worse, as he was 20th overall. Most recently Nicky`s engagement in the MotoGP Championship includes being a substitute for injured racers of the Honda team, and he raced two times in 2016, finishing 15th on both occasions.

Also, in 2016 he returned to the Superbike World Championship, and competed in 18 races, recording one victory and finishing in 5th position in the standings.

Regarding his personal life, Nicky was engaged to Jackie Marin since 17th May 2016. Nicky did on 22 May 2017, five days after being in collision with a vehicle while out on a bicycle training exercise in northern Italy .
