Sports Bikes are specially designed for racing purpose or some other sports. There are some bikes which offer some other usages as well alongside being sport bike and that can be called as variations of sports two wheelers. Sports vehicles which offer touring features like carrying facility, comfortable sitting, and general purpose designed are considered as sport touring. They are mostly used by bikers who go for biking all over the world. These touring race bikes have better agility, and lighter weight.
Another variation in race bike is race replica which are specially designed for general public and have features almost same as sport bikes. Main idea behind racing replica is to attract common man towards sports bike. R and RR suffixes are used for replica and race replica. Not only as per its usage but term race replica is also used to differentiate bikes of super bike era and some older bikes. Time of race replica bikes was begun in mid 1980’s.
Naked bikes were introduced in year As sports bikes are special purpose bikes they need special designed and different elements to design them. So it’s important to find out that which design elements play pivotal role in design of sports motorcycle. First thing first, body movement of rider and design of bike should complement each other while on road for cause. So, sports vehicles are designed in such a way that one corners and curves legs of rider comes closer to body and that allow rider to transfer his body weight forward which help to reduce overall load of rider weight on bike.
More often than not, sports bikes have high performance and heavy engines inside light weight outer body. To reduce weight of outer body, manufacturers use specialized and expensive materials made with high technologies. Multi-piston calipers are used with brake pad and disc brakes to make sure that sport bike get much needed high quality braking. High quality materials are used for long life and better stability of suspension system. And more importantly adjustments can be made as far a suspension system is concern.
Tires of sporty bikes are slightly different than those used in motorcycles. Usually broad and large tires are found in sport motorcycles to make sure that have better grip with road and higher speed. To reduce aerodynamic drag, engineers use fairings in some of the Sports Bikes but one necessary in all bikes. It also help rider to get protection from wind.
Weight distribution on front and back side, location and weight of engine, lighter weight of outer body and position of rider are designed in such a manner that sport bike can have best acceleration, cornering, road rigidity, as well as quality braking. TO say the list, all areas of concern are included while designing super bike so that it can provide racing performance.
