"Beside this European Superbike class, we also were competing to win the 2011 B.E.A.R.S Championship. So it was a hard year, and the competition with the Japanese inline 4?s, the BMW S 1000 RR?s, Aprilia RSV 4?s and Ducati 1190R?s was really tough. But the EBR was once again a benchmark for everyone this year. I really need to thank everybody, from the factory to the team, who put that package together." said rider Harald Kitsch, who claimed the championship with a final victory at the German Biketoberfest at the Oschersleben racetrack, and the fastest laptime of all at the event.
