Types of motorcycles
Motorcycles are classified according to how the motorcycles are put to use, or the designers intent, or some combination of the two.
These are designed for being ridden on the paved roads. They ahve smoot tires with a light tread pattern and engines generally in the 125 cc(7.6cu in) and over range. Most are capable of speeds up to 100mph (160kn/h), and many of speeds in excess of 125 mph(201km/h)
Standard/ Naked bikes/ Roadsters
They are versatile, general-purpose street motorcycles. They have an upright riding posture of their cruisers and the forward leaning sport bikes. They do not come with fairings or windscreens, or if they have them, they are relatively small.
Their engines are are tuned for low-end torque, making them less demanding to ride because it is not necessary to shift as frequently to accelerate or maintain control.
Sport bikes emphasize top speed, acceleration, braking, handling and grip on paved roads,typically at the expense of comfort and fuel economy in comparison to less specialized motorcycles
Sport bikes have comparatively high performance engines resting inside a lightweight frame. Inline-four engines dominate the sport bike category, with V-twins having a significant presence, and nearly every other engine configuration appearing in small numbers at one time or another.The combination of these elements helps maintain structural integrity and chassis rigidity.Braking systems combine higher performance brake pads and multi-piston calipers that clamp onto oversized vented rotors.Suspension systems are advanced in terms of adjustments and materials for increased stability and durability.Most sport bikes have fairings, often completely enclosing the engine, and windscreens that effectively deflect the air at very high speeds, or at least reduce overall drag.
They have large-displacement engines, fairings and screens that offer good weather and wind protection, large-capacity fuel tanks for long ranges between fill-ups, and a relaxed, upright seating position. Passenger accommodation is excellent and has expansive luggage space.
These combine attributes of sport bikes and touring motorcycles.
The rider posture is less extreme than a sport bike, giving greater long-distance comfort.Accommodation for a passenger is superior to a sport bike as well, along with increased luggage capacity.
It is lighter than a pure touring bike and often having racier engines, suspensions, and brakes, sport tourers corner better and are more at home being aggressively ridden on curvy canyon roads
Dual-sports, sometimes called dual-purpose or on/off-road motorcycles, are street legal machines that are also designed to enter off-road situations.Typically based on a dirt bike chassis, they have added lights, mirrors, signals, and instruments that allow them to be licensed for public roads.They are higher than other street bikes, with a high center of gravity and tall seat height, allowing good suspension travel for rough ground
Scooters, underbones and mopeds
Scooters engine sizes range smaller than motorcycles, 50–850 cc (3.1–51.9 cu in), and have all-enclosing bodywork that makes them cleaner and quieter than motorcycles, as well as having more built-in storage space. Automatic clutches and continuously variable transmissions (CVT) make them easier to learn on and to ride. Scooters usually have smaller wheels than motorcycles. Scooters usually have the engine as part of the swingarm, so that their engines travel up and down with the suspension.
Underbone are small-displacement motorcycle with a step-through frame. They are differentiated from scooters by their larger wheels and their use of footpegs instead of a floorboard. They often have a gear shifter with an automatic clutch.
Mopeds used to be a hybrid of the bicycle and the motorcycle, equipped with a small engine (usually a small two-stroke engine up to 50 cc, but occasionally an electric motor) and a bicycle drivetrain, and motive power can be supplied by the engine, the rider, or both. There is also Sport mopeds – a type of moped that resembles a sport bike.
Off road/Dirt Bikes
They are designed for driving surfaces that are not conventionally paved- this are rough surfaces that are often created naturally such as sand, gravel, a river, mud or snow.
They have long suspension travel, high ground clearance, and rugged construction with little bodywork and no fairings for less damage in spills. Wheels (usually 21″ front, 18″ rear) have knobby tires, often clamped to the rim with a rim lock.
These are specially adapted for specific job functions, such as those used by the ambulance, blood bikes, fire, military services and for specialised services such as pizza delivery.
