The Daytona Motorsports Group which bought the rights to the AMA racing series has been releasing the new rules for the various classes. The last rules to be released are for the Literbike class, covering the purse, contingency money and other technical details. Tech rules are almost identical to the Canadian Superbike rules and what I thought was the best part, look at the list of bikes eligible for homologation:
Aprilia RSV 4
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R
This could make for far more interesting racing than we've seen in a long time.
Superbikes will now be made up of 600s, 750s, the Ducati 848 and the like:
BMW HP2 Sport
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R
KTM Super Duke
MV Brutale 910S
Triumph Daytona 675
It will take a little getting used to but this class, too, could be pretty exciting.
The Buell 1125R is eligible in both classes, I guess the difference is simply the horsepower limit for each class which puts the 1125R more naturally in the Superbike area though someone who's a real tuner might exceed the 140 horsepower limit and want to play in the Literbike's 185 horsepower class, and even though it could be at a disadvantage there, Steve Crevier has already shown that, at least in Canada, that's not too much of a problem.
