Kyle Wyman leaves Superbikes and bets on King of the Baggers

Kyle Wyman Racing (KWR) has announced that he will not be competing in the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship this year to focus 100% on the King of the Baggers series, also part of MotoAmerica.

Wyman is the defending champion and intends to focus solely on the King of the Baggers in 2022, where he will ride a Factory Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Road Glide Special.

– As the start of the season approached, I decided to focus all my attention on the King of the Baggers series with Harley-Davidson Motor Company. As we worked hard to evolve the Superbike program with a new manufacturer for 2022, I explored many options in the paddock and ended up committing to Harley-Davidson, just like they did to me. I want to give them my full attention in 2022.

Last year, Wyman competed in the Superbike and King of the Baggers series on MotoAmerica, falling for the latter this year, although he explained he won’t be closing the class going forward:

– We have competed in three Superbike seasons with Yamaha and three seasons with Ducati. We were on the podium with both bikes, but he still wants to do a lot more in the category. This step back in terms of Superbikes is a refreshing change from what has been a challenge every year. I hope this gap year will help me understand how I want to be in Superbike again in the future. Now the focus is on defending the title at the King of the Baggers, which will have seven races this year.
