Damn, same amount of rounds. I had heard about the addition of Indy and the Ridge, but didn't realize they'd take out both Sonoma and Utah. I thought they'd keep Utah at least and just have 11 rounds instead of 10.

2006 CBR600 (sold)
2010 1198 (parted out across North America)
2013 CBR500R (sold)
2009 ZX6R (parted out across North America)
2015 R3 (sold)
2018 Ninja 400 (race bike)

Yeah. I wonder what other series they are going to run with at Indy.

Heard that Yamaha is pulling out of the Superbike class now as well, and the Yamaha team will be ran through Attack/Stamboli's team instead.

Just when I thought MotoAmerica was better than ever, one of the 2 main manufacturers pulls out. Wtf?? It's gonna be just Suzuki now and a bunch of privateers. Kawasaki and Honda need to step up to it.

Literally said the same thing when I read the news earlier. What a bummer that is, looks like JD or Gerloff will be moving to something else. I really hope kawi gets involved, but I have my doubts. I really don't see Honda making a move at all,they barely can get their shit together in wsbk.

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

So I was under the impression this bike is coming out this upcoming year, but I see it's a 2021 model?? So does that mean Bautista and Haslam will be racing it next year before it's even released?? Is that even allowed per WSBK rules?

Oh really? What's different about the 2020 BMW vs the 2019? I thought they raced a 2019 since that's what it looked like. They just made major changes on that bike for 2019, why would they not have raced that one?
