The Premier Class in Motorcycle Racing Has Been Swapped
MOTOGP (Mobile Engine Performance) test stands for Mobile Engine Performance. It is a series of evaluations which are carried out by car enthusiasts and automobile professionals all over the world to analyze the performance of the vehicles based on its engine power, emissions and fuel efficiency. This series of tests is conducted with the help of a standard computer that monitors and records data in real time. The purpose of this article is to give you a brief idea about the importance of MOTOGP for any new vehicle purchase.
In the competitive world of motorbikes, MOTOGP or the Mobile Engine Performance Group plays a crucial role. The goal of MOTOGP is to enable motorcycle racers to gain knowledge about the latest technologies and performance improvements made in different types of four-stroke engines. The main aim of this sport is to promote harmonization of standards across countries and facilitate mobility in general. The next MOTOGP event which will be held in Barcelona is the Barcelona continental superbike championship and the date is scheduled from February 14, 2021.
The Barcelona Formula 1 Meeting is one of the most awaited international motorbike racing events of the year. This prestigious exhibition draws millions of sports fans from across the globe. The organizers have decided to hold the Spanish season of MOTOGP in March, while the other superbike events will be held in the coming months. With the recent announcement of the disqualification of several superbikes during the season, the participants of the Barcelona superbike championship are expected to be superbikes of all brands. The Barcelona superbike championship is scheduled to run for ten days, including the final on Saturday, March 7th.
The three other big races of the year which are held internationally are the MotoGP championship for superbikes, the WEC calendar season for bikes and the Tour de France for motorcycles. The first two seasons of the MotoGP championship will see a new era for bikes as Honda teams are taking over the BTM consortium. The other two seasons will see the leading teams in each series racing against each other in the classic and exhibition races to decide the championship winner.
The second MOTOGP season also sees the introduction of new rules for the top riders of the championship to battle out for the title. The new rules for the top riders include a minimum of two MOTs per bike in the season, two bonus points for each race finish and double the points for each stage completed. For riders who fail to meet these minimums, they will be subject to disqualification from the championship. The other teams and riders now have to work extra hard to retain their places in the premier class.
The new rules have affected the superstock market quite negatively as the large displacement engines and superstock slicers have lost their power compared to the current bikes. The top two bikes at this year’s MOT were the Yamaha YZf and KTM. Both superstock bikes had very good results last year but this year there is only one man’s bike in the top ten. With these changes in the cards, superbikes are no longer a true threat to the Honda outfits and in fact could be under the threat of being overtaken.
