BMW has reiterated that it will continue to provide a dedicated customer support programme to those that continue to use its machinery in the World Superbike Championship next season.

Following the final round of the season at Jerez, BMW has now outlined those plans, revealing it will provide on-site circuit support, training workshops for engineers and technicians, and special racing packages for engines and electronics.

Do we know if there will be any team (s) running BMW for 2014?

I think Yamaha said that also, when they left WSBK a few years back!

Could be good. Kick in the ass for Ducati. Batta may run another team. The grid could use another well run team. Alstare Aprilia with Laverty as lead rider?

It seems that everything that should be a kick in the ass for Ducati never is.
