Taking the FIM Supersport World Championship by storm for just three races on his debut in 2016, Finland's Niki Tuuli moved into the class with a full time ride in 2017 for Kallio Racing. Tuuli revolutionized the World Supersport grid with his 2nd place in Lausitzring in 2016, where he fought with Champion Kenan Sofuoglu and confirmed his potential with another two podiums in Magny-Cours and Jerez.
Guided by team manager Vesa Kallio and supported by a very professional team, the Nordic was able to have a strong and enjoyable 2017 season. Mixing the pack up at the front, he took one pole position and two podium finishes after a strong season in the highly competitive class. Making the move over to Honda for 2018 with CIA Landlord Insurance Honda, it will be a year for the Finn to understand and develop the CBR600RR.
