Superbike racing motorcycles are generally derived from standard production models and are both quick and powerful - 1000cc engines with over 200bhp.
In general the bikes must maintain the same profile as their road going counterparts, with the same overall appearance as seen from the front, rear and sides.
Teams are allowed to improve the performance of the standard bike however with the rules allowing for various levels of engine tuning and aftermarket chassis improvements.
