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.

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.

@Backmarker what rounds are you racing this year? Found any improvements on the bike?
For 2020 .. Possibly Indy, Pittrace and one other.
We’ll see as monies gets divided and dates get sorted.

Nothing new with the bike at this point. I haven’t changed a thing since MA at Pittrace.

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?

BMW used their 2020 S1000RR model this year so I'm pretty sure its fine.

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? :dowhat

A lot of uncertainty looming over next year's factory entries. Factory Yamaha seems to be out and Attack is taking over. Suzuki rumored to not participate.

MotoAmerica is adding a Superbike feeder class: 2020 Superbike Cup pdf
Sounds like an effort on their part to try and get some more people in the Superbike classes. They started doing that in the 2nd half of the year, but there wasn't much incentive so a lot of the top guys like Lee, Mesa, May, etc didn't do it.
