Regarding the Team Alstare Press Release and following media discussions about the possible Bimota homologation, Dorna WSBK Organization wish to inform on the official FIM statement:
As an illustration, the FIM and the Superbike Commission have in the past adjusted the minimum quantities of motorcycles to be produced to participate due to the worldwide economic market situation. Such a change was adopted in 2009. Another change was made due to the market situation in 2012 when the market situation for motorcycles in the sport section was of great concern. We have started discussions within the Superbike Commission to modify these numbers.
An official announcement will be made by the end of January.”
