BSB to pilot new worldwide Supersport regulations in 2021

British Superbike bosses have agreed to pilot a new set of Supersport regulations in 2021 which will allow a variety of engine configurations and capacities.

In recent years the Supersport class has been bound by regulations to incorporate 600cc fou- cylinder, 675cc three-cylinder and 750cc twin-cylinder machines. As the market changes, motorcycles outside of this parameters now form the Supersport sector.

Planned new regulations could allow machines from different manufacturers that currently are not eligible to compete in the Supersport class adding value either to the teams and the series organiser.


MSVR, as the organiser of the British Supersport Championship, will pilot the evolution of the class in 2021 with the introduction of a Triumph 765 three-cylinder machine and later in the season a Ducati 955 twin-cylinder machine with a view to evaluate if these new technical regulations could be the platform for the 2022 FIM Supersport World Championship organised by Dorna.

“The Supersport class is tremendously important to the international and domestic racing structures,” said BSB series director Stuart Higgs.

“Previously multiple manufacturers and machine configurations have competitively raced together but this has diminished given the changes in the market.

“To reset and redefine the category will provide a great stimulus and great future for the intermediate production derived class. I am very pleased and excited to be co-operating and working closely with our friends at FIM and Dorna on this project.”
