Motorcycle News (UK) - - TT 2017 PREVIEW -

Su­per­stock bikes are the clos­est things you’ll find to bikes you can buy in a show­room. Teams can change the ex­haust sys­tem, sus­pen­sion, fu­elling set­tings and body­work as well as the usual race stuff like rearsets, bars and quick­shifters.

While stock reg­u­la­tions dic­tate teams have to use the ma­chine’s standard fuel tank, th­ese are then mod­i­fied so they can hold the ex­tra fuel needed to do two laps of the 37.73mile moun­tain course. Su­per­stock ma­chines are very close to su­per­bikes in terms of lap speed. Ian Hutchin­son holds the class lap record at 133.098mph.
