Is A Superbike Or A Supermoto Faster On Track?

Sure, Michelin’s new series “We Are All Racers” is a way for it to hock rubber to its two-wheeled customers. But mission accomplished. I want to hit the track in a bad, bad way.


The stage is set with Kenny Noyes, 2014 FIM CEV Superbike Champion, peeling off a few test laps in his beefy Kawasaki ZX-10R. During a slightly awkward debrief in the pits, Noyes is challenged by SuperMoto star, Sylvain Bidart. Then it’s go-time.

Bidart, who races for Team Luc1 Motorsports, seems a worthy competitor drifting around Noyes on his brappy Honda CRF450. While the big one-liter Kawasaki should have a runaway victory, Bidart gets to cut a few corners and make a few jumps to keep things in check. If you’re trying to sell tires, this is how to do it.

I’m more interested in who is having more fun. For me it’d be the supermoto.
