An exciting time in 2016 as so many circumstances and products have been implemented in Moto GP and WSBK/Supersport this year.  Everyones looking forward to another great battle of the Rivals in the sport and a continuation of last years season which may be one of the best in history (motogp).

WSBK isnt far behind in drama either as teams like Ducati are planning on going even harder this year for a title. Riders like Nicky Hayden joining the riders list.  Marco Melandri (former champion) testing for MV Agusta has also caused some attention.  MV looking to develop further and charge to the top with their F4RC this year.  BMW is coming on strong as well.  All teams looking to catch the ever consistent ZX10R with pilot Rea on board - dominating.  Ducatis Chaz Davies hopes to take that championship away from him.  Its going to be great. 

In SSP, MV Agusta has caught the attention of riders and teams for sure!  More riders will be on board the F3675 trying to top the charts with a very competitive bike.  Again everyones chasing Kawasaki's ZX6 with Sofuoglu leading.  Watch out for him, Gino Rea on MV this year and Cluzel looking to pass the ZX6 and bring a title back to Italy's town of Varese where the MV's are bred.


MotoGP has new electronics meaning everyone shares the same system.  Magnetti Marelli will be the provider of the Unified Software.  Bridgestone is no longer and Michelin is now in - working hard mind you to develop a tire ready to race with in Qatar coming soon in March.  2016 also has new bikes for the factory teams raising challenges for all riders.  Its a whole new season.  Whatever happened last year, doesnt matter.  Everyones starting at the same point.  It should be alot fun to watch the teams and riders progress.  Cant wait!!!
