Anyone who has a motor bike knows the enjoyment it can bring when you are out riding on the road. Not everyone knows much about the fast and furious history of sports bikes. The sports bike is a motorcycle that was built for speed, braking, acceleration and cornering on paved roads. These bikes do consist mainly for its ability to perform out on many kinds of paved roadways.
The motorcycle is a versatile piece of machinery and can be put to several uses as the owner or rider sees fit. Not like in the past where there were not that many types of bikes available to people to own, but during the 1950’s the number of types and subtypes increased. The introduction of many name brand bikes were beginning to emerge in 1969. They were marked with a dramatic increase with more speed and power of the practical and affordable sports bikes that were becoming available to all of the public.
Then in the 1970’s there were even more improvements with the bikes such as better suspension and also braking consummate with its power towards the in-line fours which began to just dominate the world of sport bikes. During the 1980’s again the bikes began to took another leap ahead and became very indistinguishable from any other racing bike.
In the 1990’s the sport bikes became even more diverse when they began to add some new variations such as the street fighter and the naked bike up to the much more familiar road racing style of the sports bikes.
The manufacturers put a lot of emphasis towards the sport bikes like speed, braking, acceleration and also maneuverability. The bikes now have a more high performance engines that can rest right inside of a more lightweight body frame. There were some high tech expensive materials that were used to reduce the weight on these sport bikes.
The system for braking is of a higher performance with the brake pads and the brake disc that have better piston calipers which clamp to the over sized vented rotors. The suspension system for these kind of bikes are very advanced in regard to its adjustments and the materials for their increased durability and stability. Also the front and the rear tires became larger and also much wider which can allow the bikes to corner with speed on more leaner angles.
There is a combination of the rider position and the location for the engine and other components. The geometry of the motorcycle will help to maintain the structural integrity and also chassis it rigidity and can determine just how the bike can behave while under the acceleration, cornering and braking.
