These road racers may be young, but they display talent and racecraft well beyond their years.

Putting lighter-weight, twin-cylinder motorcycles in the spotlight, REV’IT! Twins Cup is a rapidly evolving race class that initially enabled regional and club racers from around the country to step up to the MotoAmerica series and compete on a national level.

Now, along with that mission, REV’IT! Twins Cup has become a stepping-stone for young riders who want to move up from STG Junior Cup and don’t feel quite ready for Supersport.

REV’IT! Twins Cup is also increasing in popularity due to the manufacturer’s introducing more and more of this category of motorcycles. New models like the Aprilia RS 660 and Yamaha YZF-R7 are the perfect choices for REV’IT! Twins Cup competition, along with the venerable Suzuki SV650 and Kawasaki Ninja 650.

Engine Configurations:

What started as a novel idea has become one of MotoAmerica’s most popular and fastest-growing race classes. Touring motorcycles from Harley-Davidson and Indian form the basis for Mission King Of The Baggers, but these motorcycles are far from gentle cruisers.

By the time the teams, aftermarket companies, and riders get done with these bikes, they are bona fide road racers with much-improved ground clearance, race-ready suspensions, aggressive ergonomics, and all sorts of engine modifications that deliver eye-popping performance.

Touring fairings and hard side bags are part of the formula, but even those are highly modified through the use of carbon fiber and other exotic materials.
