Bimota plans the return to Superbikes led by Rubén Xaus

Good news for the Superbike World Championship that after facing the withdrawal of official support from some important brands such as Yamaha or Suzuki to their teams, a new manufacturer could be added to the category in the not too distant future. This would be none other than Bimota because those of Rimini have decided resume your competition program and create the Bimota Research Development Department, with which it is intended to reach the world category of motorcycles derived from the series and whose team director is Ruben Xaus.

And that series production is precisely one of the key points to achieve the objective since the FIM stipulates a certain number of units produced to be able to participate, behind are those ships full of the Foggy Petronas motorcycles. Although it seems that the road is going the other way, knowing Bimota's good relationship with Ducati, it would not be surprising that not in a long time a machine that had something to do with the revolutionary Ducati 1199 Panigale was pulled out of their sleeve.

Rubén Xaus:

That being the case, I am afraid that for next season the SBK grid has lost another of the most renowned riders in its history.
