What is a sportsbike?

| Oct 22, 2019 | Motorcycle Accidents |

Not all motorcycles are created equal. You have a lot of different divisions these days. Some are touring bikes, made for long distances. Others are dirt bikes, made for off-road adventures. You also have beginner bikes, sportsbikes, three-wheeled motorcycles and a lot more.

If you’re thinking about riding, the first thing you need to do is to identify the type of bike that is right for you. Not all types are listed above, naturally, but let’s take a quick look at what sportsbikes are and why people like them.

Sportsbikes and supersports bikes have their roots in the racing circuit. They are made to be fast and light. Some weigh only 400 pounds, for instance, which is nearly half of a standard highway bike. They have high-output motors, an incredible amount of horsepower, and a sleek, aerodynamic design. They also focus more on speed and agility than on comfort. Riders are forced to lean forward and press themselves against the bike, which helps reduce wind drag but is not ideal for long trips.

While this design can make them very fun and exciting, there is some risk, as well. A bike that was essentially built for a track and then modified for highway use is a bike that could get involved in a serious high-speed accident. Drivers need to be very experienced and understand the power of the bikes they’re riding.

Sometimes, even that is not enough. Another driver can make a mistake and hit a sportsbike, seriously injuring the rider. These riders must know if they have a right to compensation.
