World Super Bikes (also known as SBK, World Super bike, WSB, or WSBK) is the worldwide Superbike racing Championship. The championship was founded in 1988. The World Championship consists of a series of rounds held on permanent racing facilities. The motorcycles that race in the World Super Bikes are tuned versions of motorcycles available for sale to the public. MotoGP is the motorcycle world’s equivalent of Formula One, whereas Superbike racing is similar to touring car racing.
The championship is regulated by the FIM and is organised by Dorna. Jonathan Rea has become the first rider since Carl Fogarty to successfully defend his World Super Bike crown. The Kawasaki Racing rider clinched back-to-back World Super Bike championships at Qatar in 2016.
