Current SBK bike

As we've not seen SBK bikes in video games for a long time, it'd be good to refamiliarise ourselves with them. Superbikes are high-powered sports bikes that are derived from road bike models.

Overview

There are currently five bike manufacturers in the Superbike Championship. These are BMW, Ducati, Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha.

Multiple teams use the same chassis and there are currently 24 full-time riders. There are also a handful of wildcard and replacement riders too, but we don't expect them to make an appearance in SBK 22.

Full rider and teams list

Here's what we believe the full roster will be upon the game's launch:
