The SuperTwins Cup category will be a new addition to the 2023 Australian Superbike Championship, with the aim to develop a cost-effective mid-level platform as a stepping stone from Supersport 300.

Crucially, Supersport will remain for 2023 – with new model models homologated – but the SuperTwins Cup will feature as a class within that category’s battle.

“The SuperTwins Cup is a new class for the ASBK Championship in 2023 that services a number of goals: market relevance, affordability, easier race preparation and close racing,” said Motorcycling Australia CEO Peter Doyle.

“The Supersport class is the number two racing category in the ASBK Championship and having the SuperTwins Cup racing as a class within a class, this popular and competitive category will ensure maximum exposure as well.

“The ASBK Championship had market relevance as a key aim for this project and this growing segment will now be represented at the pinnacle of the sport.”

Four bikes have currently been homologated for the SuperTwins Cup next year, the Yamaha R7, Suzuki SV 650, Aprilia RS 660 and the Kawasaki Ninja 650.
