WSBK Rev Limits Revised
The FIM have announced the first set of what they dub ‘Balancing and Concession’ updates for the 2019 WSBK season.
Ducati have had 250rpm lopped off their top end rpm limit which is now reduced to 16,100rpm.
Honda have had their wsbk rpm limits increased by 500rpm, to 15,050rpm.
Other rev limits remain the same and the Ducati continues to enjoy an almost 1500rpm advantage over the latest Kawasaki ZX-10RR.
As the gap on points between Ducati and Kawasaki remains slim at seven-points, neither brand will be allowed a concession parts upgrade during the season, while the other manufacturers will be allowed one upgrade.
