Thoughts?


I'm thinking it will be a 300cc class but would like to see them use a 500cc bike or maybe even a 650 twin like the Gladius or Kawi. Either way I think it's awesome and is exactly what is needed here in America to save road racing!

CBR500 is perfect, get a manufacturer involved and  encourage overseas participation.  Make the rules match WSBK.
Make the big bikes the premier class again.

300 or 500 class would be my guess with both Honda and Kawi making new models in both those sizes. 

I wish it be 650 class.

The European Junior Cup utilizes the Honda 500 and it seems to be a good platform for that beginner racer.

Would be great to see something like the old Pro Thunder, or the 250GP class. Too bad there aren't enough bikes being built to support it.

Is this just a rumor? Next year the 200 will be Superbikes again. So there will be 2 600 classes that are not much different, and one Superbike class. Then need something different.

2014 will be the last year for Supersport.

The "Proposed" lightweight class would replace it.......
