Through years the Super bike competitions have become famous among the people and gives a platform to the companies for depicting the power and efficiency attached to their models.

The looks should remain same from all angles for the bike and difference should be maintained with two different models of the same company. The engine, braking system and suspension of the bike could be enhanced as per needs and new designs could be given to the rider’s seat as well.

Talking for winning brands of the event, Honda has been the first winner of the championship and maintained the position for first few seasons till the V-twin engines did not take over the track with a brand tag of Ducati. Ducati with its latest and enhanced technology made a grand lead in the bike world but Honda once again in the year 2000 won the race accommodating its new Honda RC51 with a V-twin engine. And after a couple of years again the shield was in the hands of Ducati.
