The European Junior Cup is a motorcycling series held as a support series for the European rounds of the Superbike World Championship, hence the title. It is open to riders aged between 14–19 and has been held every year since 2011.

The first season was run with Kawasaki Ninja 250R bikes,[1] before they switched to KTM 690 Duke for 2012[2] and to Honda CBR500R from 2013[3] and beyond.
