The answer “a Honda CBR1000RR8”

Yes, the long time Suzuki rider has changed brands, the 34 year-old has signed with Blue Wing Honda to partner New Plymouth’s Hayden Fitzgerald in the two-rider Honda team under the “Castrol Honda Red Riders” banner.

When asked “Why the change?” the quietly spoken Shirriffs simply said “I want to win”.

Shirriffs appeared completely relaxed on his new mount and showed a clean set of heels to the rest of the Superbike field all weekend, on what was basically a stock machine with Ohlin’s suspension.
