MotoAmerica inks partner to bring King Of The Baggers to European fans

MotoAmerica and MotorSport Vision Racing (MSVR), the promoters of the Bennetts British Superbike Series, have announced an agreement that will see MSVR become the European promotional partner for the MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers series.

“The growth of the MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers series has been phenomenal and its popularity has brought a lot of new spectators to our championship and in turn a lot of those also become Superbike fans,” says Wayne Rainey, president of MotoAmerica. “Our relationship with MotorSport Vision Racing and Stuart Higgs makes them the perfect partner to help us get the MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers to European race fans.”

The hugely popular MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers Championship features highly modified American-made Harley-Davidson and Indian V-twin touring motorcycles. The upstart class got rolling in the MotoAmerica series in 2020 as a one-off invitational at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

The race was a resounding success, and the series grew to a three-round championship in 2021, featuring factory teams from both Indian Motorcycles and Harley-Davidson as well as teams supported by well-known V-twin aftermarket companies. The growth of the championship has continued and the current 2023 season consists of 14 races with a star-studded grid competing in seven of the MotoAmerica rounds, including the series opener on the high banks of Daytona International Speedway during Bike Week in Florida.

The new agreement will see MSVR evaluate different venues, series and events throughout Europe and plan a series of races.

MSVR BSB Series Director Stuart Higgs concludes, “I have watched with great interest as the MotoAmerica King Of The Baggers series has captured the attention of fans, the motorcycle industry and the media alike across the USA, with its totally unique, seen-to-be-believed motorsport spectacle. I am confident that we can develop the series to a new European audience and replicate the success already achieved.”
