2014 Aragon World Superbike Friday Roundup: Interesting Times

Thanks to the homologation agreements that have been reached, the arrival of Bimota brings the number of manufacturers competing in World Superbike to nine. Their bike is the usual blend of bespoke chassis and off the shelf engine, with a BMW S1000RR power plant being at the heart of their BB3 project. Needing only 125 bikes to be available for sale before the bike is eligible to score points, down from 1000, Bimota will still not be eligible to score points until that number is reached. Ayrton Badovini and Christian Iddon are able at least to run their EVO class bikes in the races even if they can't yet score points. It is estimated that they will reach the required 125 bikes in four months.
