Six silver stripes for SBK’s 25th

Dailies, Galleries -


2012 marks the 25th anniversary of World Superbike (now called “SBK” for reasons that escape reason) racing. To celebrate, riders will be running these special Pirellis for qualifying at Monza this weekend. If you’re as bad at relationships as we are, you’ll be surprised to learn that silver is traditionaly associated with 25th anniversaries. It’s a subtly neat graphic nod that should look good no matter what livery they’re accompanying.

    Will the stripes remain after the first two laps?

    • Wes Siler

      They’ll be gone by the first corner.

    Put them on the Griso in the other article = solid gold.
