Question I've been wanting to get more into the racing world...

...but I don't know where to start.

Not so much as racing myself... But like keeping up with professional races and what not.

Maybe if someone could get me started... Or get me to a good link....

Or break some stuff down for me...

Anythin'.

So whats the difference in the classes?

Whats MotoGP, and the superbike?

I know its the bike sizes... But what are the bike sizes for all of the classes? And is that the only difference between them?

Superbikes are based on 1000cc sportbikes you can buy at your local dealer, but are heavily modified for racing.

Other classes, Supersport, 600cc bikes with a limited amount of modifications. Basically just suspension, exhaust and... that's it I think.

Superstock, basically the same as supersport, but with 1000cc bikes.

AMA rules and classes differ a bit from World Superbike.


MotoGP bikes are currently 990cc prototype machines. It's sort of the testing grounds for new technology. For example, the Honda RCV211 uses a V5 engine Ducati uses a V4 but in 'twin pulse' mode where 2 cylinders fire at the same time so it acts like a v-twin.

Other classes in MotoGP are 125 and 250. Awesome purpose built racebikes with 2-stroke engines. 125's are single cylinder, 250's are V-twins. Some strange things you will find is dual-counter-rotating crankshafts .. Great techy bits on the MotoGP machines.
