Sports Bikes

Sports bikes are built for acceleration and high speeds, these have high-performance engines and are lightweight. Sports bikes’ foot pegs are higher when you compare it to that of other motorcycles and longer reach is offered by their handlebars, which is a great benefit when you ride in the wind at high speeds.

Many motorcyclists that first rode sports bikes have switched to baggers since they are more like a Harley type of motorcycle. What also makes baggers popular are their big wheels, they are the giants of motorcycles and is loved for their shiny front wheels.


Cruiser is easily identifiable by their high handlebars and low riding positions, their forward foot pegs and riders enjoy to lead back. Set up to be fast, they are low torque.


Bobbers are the custom-made type of motorcycles, in general, modified via the removing of excess bodyworks, which is done to reduce the overall weight of the bike. Once all the parts that are unnecessary are removed, the motorcycle has the desired minimalistic appearance.
