Pirelli will continue in the role of spec tyre supplier for all WorldSBK classes for the 2021, 2022 and 2023 seasons, marking 20 years of collaboration.

The Milan company, in agreement with Dorna WSBK Organization (DWO), promoter and organiser of the Superbike World Championship, and with the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), had already announced the extension of the supply agreement last year, expiring at the end of 2020, for a further three seasons.

“The announcement of the Single Tyre Supply contract renewal in October 2019 was followed by a year in which many things turned upside down,” said Pirelli head cheese, Giorgio Barbier.

“Pirelli and Dorna worked together to complete a World Championship that has demonstrated remarkable resilience, further strengthening the partnership and giving us the confirmation of being able to manage the next seasons and the future of the Championship in the best possible way.

“The number and quality of riders this year is a clear sign that we will have a level of competitiveness and entertainment never seen before. We will continue to work together with DWO on the growth of the Championship and particularly in that of the all-new Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup, because today’s young riders will be the future protagonists of tomorrow’s World Superbike.”
