The European Junior Cup was a motorcycling series held as a support series for the European rounds of the Superbike World Championship, hence the title. It was open to riders aged between 14–19; for 2015 the upper limit was increased to 21 for males and 23 for females, who also competed for a Women's European Cup;[1] for 2016 the age limit for female riders was 24.[2]

The first season was run with Kawasaki Ninja 250R bikes,[3] before they switched to KTM 690 Duke for 2012[4] and to Honda CBR500R from 2013[5] to 2014; the 2015 and 2016 bike was the Honda CBR650F.[6]

The series was closed after the 2016 season, as the Supersport 300 World Championship was announced as the new entry class to be introduced in World Superbike events for 2017.[7]
