New Supermotodaz Quickshifter


Our partner Supermotodaz has a new quickshifter for sale especially made for Supermoto models.

The Quickshifter works by measuring the force applied to the gear lever and automatically shifts gears when the rider initiates a shift. This means perfect and instant gear changes at any throttle position without hutting off the gas or using the clutch every time, resulting in listering starts as well as easy and instant shifts during the race, giving you an edge on every gear shift. See Supermotodaz for models available, more models are being manufactured at the moment so if yours is not shown please e-mail Supermotodaz for info.

Randy de Puniet enjoying Supermoto

Randy de Puniet took part in the Bomboogie Xtreme Supermotard race at the Bologna motorshow over the weekend, thoroughly enjoying the experience onboard a Honda 450CRF despite some bad weather at the event and coming home in eighth position.

The 27-year-old also met fans and signed autographs at the show before commenting, `I enjoyed myself very much during these two days. The bad weather conditions slowed down our pace but it was good training for me. The guys here are very fast because they have competed in the Supermoto championship for a long time and I never expected to end in the top ten.´

New Poll about for Sale section

I'm thinking about a for sale section on Supermoto Central where people can submit the Supermoto bikes or parts they have for sale. The reason for this idea is to make it easier to search for bikes/parts in other countries. Like in Europe the countries are quite close and postage costs not that expensive. But there is no place where Supermoto fans in the EU can advertise their parts/bikes to people in other countires. Except for the clumsy eBay ofcourse.

Let me know what you think about this idea! Vote in the poll on the right side of the page!

No HMC KTM team in the 2009 AMA Supermoto season



Roadracerx had a little talk with HMC KTM team owner Mitch Hansen. During Mitch Hansen’s six-year tenure as the HMC Red Bull KTM Supermoto team owner, his riders have brought home two AMA Supermoto titles—the most recent coming with the 2008 Premier Title by Australian Troy Herfoss. But with economics dictating a KTM farewell to the American Supermoto racing next year, Mitch and HMC will likewise leave that series in favor of continuing to partner with KTM for the ’09 iteration of the Red Bull AMA U.S. Rookies Cup… while dreaming of a potential, eventual move to American Superbike racing in the meantime.
