Go to YouTube and type in Bahrain superbike. And you should find it.

About the wildcard, they've had several guys fly in to race from all over the place. You should consider it for next season. I encourage anyone to come.
Damn Thamer, small world. I just went to one of your races two weeks ago. Are you #44? Not a bad little series. I'm in Riyadh for a year (5 months to go) so it was nice to see some bikes on the track again. Good luck in the last two rounds.

All bikes suck at high altitude.

The 2017 will have V4 to take on the Aprilia i hope i dream i mean right now our bikes look sexy but the sound is not in the Aprilia class so let's hope we'll get the V4 for 2017.

Spoke with my dealer yesterday - no major changes planned for 2017 for the superbike line with the exception of the 1299 superlegera.

Who says they can't release a new model mid year?

Tech at local dealer mentioned he thinks it's impossible to get 1299 Euro 4 compliant.

I read somewhere that manufacturers were allowed to sell a certain nr of bikes as left-overs , so I still believe they'l bring out a new engine/model at the latest spring next year.

I believe they can sell something like 10%?

My dealer also said he can't get hold of the R's anymore as they're sold out. People who were waiting have now made the jump because if they leave it too long they won't be able to pick one up new........

Christ the emission regulations on a motorbike is crap.

Build one for Australia.

We can get away with coal powered, black smoke belching, Akra noted, death machine as long as it complies with OH&S
