don't think i've seen this posted yet. These will be in place next year. #1: Races will no longer be called due to rain during the race, instead, OPTIONAL pitstops to change tires/whatever will be available. http://www.crash.net/world+superbikes/news/185209/1/pit_stops_weight_change_for_wsbk_2013.html #2: Starting grid is now 3 riders per row a la motoGP, superpole just became that much more important. #3: weight! minimum weight of 165kg for both 1200cc twin cylinders and 1000cc four cylinders. #4: frame modifications: Modifications to the frame at the swing-arm pivot area will also be allowed, to give "a maximum of +/-5 mm of adjustment vertically and horizontally". #5: Brake lever protection #6: Fake headlights (stickers) mandatory (LOL) #7: a rear safety light for wet races, interesting! #8: 17" rims as we all already knew. This will allow tire development to help the street bikes a lot more.
