Yamaha has announced new versions of its flagship sportsbikes at the Laguna Seca WSBK round.

Ducati has unveiled a limited edition Panigale V4S in homage to arguably its greatest ever superbike, the iconic Ducati 916, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary.

Kawasaki’s Jonathan Rea took the 75th WSBK win of his career to slash Ducati’s Alvaro championship lead to just 16 points with his second victory of the weekend at Misano.
The reigning champion, looking to recover after slipping off in the Superpole sprint race which Bautista won, was handed a golden opportunity when Bautista low-sided off while leading on the second lap at Turn 4.
