The 2013 FIM Superstock 1000 Cup was the fifteenth season of the FIM Superstock 1000 Cup, the ninth held under this name. It began on 7 April at Aragón and finished on 20 October in Jerez after 9 rounds. Sylvain Barrier returned on the BMW he won the title with in 2012. The first few rounds were hotly contested between Barrier, Eddi La Marra and his team mate and former Superstock 1000 champion Niccolò Canepa. Unfortunately for La Marra, he would have a massive accident during testing which left him with in a coma and unable to complete the final three rounds of the championship on his Ducati Panigale. Barrier won 5 of the 9 races to retain his championship title, doing so at his home event at Magny-Cours. Despite skipping the final round at Jerez – to compete in the Superbike World Championship event – Barrier beat Canepa to the title by 24 points, with Jérémy Guarnoni a further point behind in third place.
