World Superbike Round 3 TV Coverage_01

 

Whats new for 2021?

There have been some minor tweaks to the format for 2021, including the removal of the two-group qualification for WorldSSP300 and the introduction of MotoGP style long-lap penalties (where track layouts allow).

Due to two new bikes appearing on the grid in 2021 (Kawasaki's new ZX-10RR and the new BMW M1000RR), maximum rev limits have also been agreed  as follows: 

Kawasaki ZX-10RR (2021)

Ducati V4 R

Yamaha YZF-R1

BMW M 1000 RR (2021)

Honda CBR1000RR-R

14,600 rpm

16,100 rpm

14,950 rpm

15,500 rpm

15,600 rpm
