It's great. It's time to see if the thing can run with the big dogs for real prize money. Kudos for Triumph for the factory backing. Sure would be nice to see some AMA FX outfit run the bike. Chaz Davies needs a real ride for next year- unless he lands the second Parmac seat. Good luck to NCR team.

I'm confused. The Honda, Kawasaki, and Suzuki bikes all are 599cc. The Daytona is 675cc. How is it eligible to race? The documentation says, "Supersport - 0-600cc 4-stroke multi cylinders"

no need for confusion it's 600cc for 4-cylinder motors, 750cc for twins and 675 for triples..although a particular manufacturer is planning to assert an adjustment for twins up til 850cc's...or so I've heard

Ha. It'll be a cold day in hell when KawaHonYamSuz allow the AMA to do this. The big4 have the racing series' cleverly split up so that each can be "champion" each year and they ain't gonna let no upstart mess with their marketing strategy.

And the six people who have attended AMA races this year totally agree!
