Although Harley ranks last in every category, keep in mind that in 2006 there were only two Harleys in the class, one of which ridden by season champion Andrew Hines.

The Buells seemed to have the advantage in qualifying as G-Squared riders Chip Ellis and Matt Smith combined to take the pole position seven times.

A new rule for 2007 which allows the inline four-cylinder bikes more displacement could make the brand rivalry even more intense in 2007 with the emergence of the late-model machines. Rob Muzzy’s team has already committed to building a Kawasaki ZX-14 and there are rumors of a Suzuki Hayabusa powered machine in the works.
