AUSTRALIAN SUPERBIKE CHAMPIONSHIP

SUPERSPORT

The Supersport class has been one of the most successful feeder catagories into the Superbike class since the late 1990s. With rules similar to those of the Superbikes, the Australian Supersport class is open to 600cc four-cylinders, 675cc three-cylinder and 750cc two-cylinder production based machines. With similar handling characteristics and suspension adjustability to the Superbikes, the Supersport class is an ideal platform for riders to learn and hone race craft and suspension tuning without the brute horsepower of the 1000cc plus Superbike machines.

Running treaded production race tyres rather than the slicks,  featured on the Superbike, the Supersport class also helps develop rider feel and race craft.

Permitted changes include, ECU mapping, rear-set foot controls, exhaust, cam timing, gearing, brakes, clip-on handlebars, and minor suspension modifications among others according to the 2017 MoMS.
