What is the Red Riders Cup?
Designed as an affordable, entry level category, the Red Riders Cup will give up and coming racers the chance to start their career in a National Series, without the financial strain or time commitments of the larger categories.

With cost and rider friendliness in mind, it was an easy choice to use the Honda CBR150 for the series. Fitted with a double-overhead camshaft, 4 valve, 150cc 4-stroke engine a 6-speed gearbox, fibreglass bodywork and telescopic forks, the bikes are not too distant from their bigger Superstock brothers and are the perfect tool for any junior wanting to launch their racing career. Better still is they’re available for $6990 at selected Honda Dealers around Australia!
