duckbubbles Posted November 17, 2007 Share Posted November 17, 2007 I received my copy of Roadracing World just this week. On pages 55/56 they have the headline: Truimph in 2008 World Supersport. In the paragraph they say: The other new factory in the series will be Truimph, racing in World Supersport with a 675cc Triple out of SC Caracchi stable. AND IT NOW APPEARS THAT BMW MAY ALSO COMPETE WITH A 675cc TRIPLE. The latest FIM World supersport regulations allow 600cc Fours, 675cc Triples and 750cc Twins. I am well aware of the announced plans by BMW to compete in World Superbike with the K1000RS. But this is the first I have head of a 675 in Superstock. It wil take a completely newly engineered motorcycle to accomplish this. If true, BMW must really be serious about racing- Suddenly. I put this as speculation in the wait and see category and doubtful at this time. I would like to see them compete in all forms of racing. Frank Link to comment
