Default Team Hero / Erik Buell Racing to withdraw from World Superbike Championship

Sad, but expected turn of events after the bankruptcy claim by EBR.

EBR has always drawn polarizing comments. I for one, completely supported the man's vision. But was surprised at Hero Motorcorp's partnership, especially considering the fact that EBR has had a very turbulent past.

Unsure if the domino effect will lead to Hero's plan for the US market. As of now, updates suggest that they will move as per plan.
