2009 Superbike World Championship season
Previous: 2008 Next: 2010
Support series:
Supersport World Championship
FIM Superstock 1000 Championship
Series rookie Ben Spies held off veteran Noriyuki Haga to win the title by six points. Spies did not defend his title in 2010, as he replaced James Toseland at the Tech 3 team in MotoGP.

The 2009 Superbike World Championship season (officially known as the HANNspree SBK Superbike World Championship for sponsorship reasons) was the 22nd season of the Superbike World Championship. It was the second season in which HANNspree had been the title sponsor of the championship.[1] The South African round returned on May 15–17 at Kyalami and was the first time since the 2002 season that the Superbike World Championship had raced there.

Ben Spies won the championship in his rookie season, bettering Noriyuki Haga in a final round decider. Ducati were the winners of the manufacturers championship, winning eleven races.
