Inline 4s dominating Superbike series (V-Twins death in racing continued)
Inline 4s have the top three spots in overall points. Given that there is only one 1000cc make (Suzuki GSXR-1000) and a 800cc Kawasaki, inline 4 fans are looking forward to next year when a new ZX10R, R1 and CBR1000RR will be racing. See AMA superbike standings at Twins are dead in racing
This all just goes to show that while the machine is important, it matters more whose on it. I hope Bostrom can stay on top. I'm sure he can because no one thought he could pull off a win on a track like Road America.
... but how come Kawasaki and Suzuki can't make a competitive MotoGP engine at the moment when at AMA level they rule?
Honda have had competitive GP engines since Mike Hailwood winning Isle of Man in 1961 and in those days Suzuki were pretty competitive too so what the hell is going on? Have all their best engineers defected to Ducati or something?
