    Don’t quite get the 748 rule? The bike is not legal unless its bored out? Main engine kit for upgrade is 853cc? rule states must be 996cc? I know the rule says same engine as frame but would putting a 996 motor in a 748 frame be that different then running a true 996?

      Well the fact is the 748 was never a Superbike.. The 916 Was then…. Also Handling against the Bigger Bikes will have a advantage on many tracks thus making the restrictions and bike selections useless…

    Odd, my Aprilia Mille-R has radial calipers bonestock. The Aprilia Edwards replicas have radial calipers. The photo above shows Edwards and Hayden on RC51 SP-2s, but we’re limited to SP-1s.

    Radial calipers were introduced in 1997 by Brembo on Valentino Rossi’s Aprilia RSW250. Radial brakes were everywhere on twins during this era.
