The Canadian Superbike Championship is adding a new Harley-Davidson XR1200 series for its 2011 season.

The Parts Canada Superbike Championship released its 2011 schedule and announced the addition of the Harley-Davidson XR1200 Cup.

Backed by Deeley, Harley-Davidson’s Canadian distributor, the XR1200 Cup is a single spec class similar to the one introduced by the AMA Pro Racing in 2010.
