500cc four-stroke class to join World Superbike schedule?

A non-world championship category for 500cc four-stroke machinery could join the World Superbike schedule from 2015 onwards. With MotoGP rights owners Dorna now controlling World Superbikes too, plans to drastically reduce costs and the technical specification of machinery in WSB and World Supersport means the European Superstock 1000 and 600 classes look certain to be cut off the schedule in 2014.

Embedded in his head is a rip off culture ?

Not had a race yet under their ownership and already they want to reduce the amount of classes the fans get to watch ?

lets get rid of the red bull rookies then as theres no need for moto3 and red bull rookies.its the same as getting rid of superstock because its similar to superbikes.just like the rookies cup superstock is for riders to cut there teeth and prove they have what it takes to ride in a fully fledged world championship.unless carmelo is replaced in 5 years there will be 1 world championship superbikes and gps will br made to unite as 1 and there will be moto3 and moto2 on the undercard which will rob us of the best racing which i the superbike series.

SBK is suppose to be about production bikes racing. Ones that we(public) can buy and ride or race. Most of the big factories are builing 600cc bikes at the moment. And that is what is racing in superstock 600.

Now that they are wanting to bring in 500cc bikes. Now all the factories has got to develop a 500cc production bike to sell to the public and to race in SBK. So how the hell is that saving money????? Just keep WSBK the way it is. I will still watch bouth.

Dorna is going to bugger it ALL up.
I love watching MotoGP because that is the best of the best in motorbike racing you can get, just like F1. And I love watching WSBK because that is a bike I can go and buy and race.
