There are many different types of motorcycles available in the marketplace today. And if you’re thinking about buying a motorcycle or one of the crotch rockets, this article will point out their differences. In fact you may not know what you want or what you’re looking for and hopefully this article will help you make a decision.
You’ll find that the most common type of motorcycle is called the cruiser. These bikes are easy to handle and will last a long time no matter what model or brand you choose. Most of the motorcycles you see on the road today are cruisers. There are a lot of different designs and styles too. They’re designed for comfort and usually have the standard seat and just your basic handle bars. They handle easily and turn well no matter how fast you go. This bike is not a lightweight and will be heavy. If you don’t want a heavy bike, look for another type of motorcycle.
Two types of cruisers are choppers and tour bikes. Choppers are modified and custom built motorcycles and can be very expensive. The cruiser tour bike is made for traveling on long trips. If that’s your plan you might want to look at a cruiser.
Sport bikes, also called a crotch rockets, are another type of motorcycle that are well known for their ability to speed. If you’re less concerned about comfort and looking for speed this is the bike to choose. They’re not good for riding long distances though. This bike is used a lot for racing. They have good suspension and are lightweight. You can drive fast and make tight turns while doing so. Most of the foreign sport bikes are always referred to as crotch rockets – bikes made by Kawasaki, Yamaha, and BMW, etc.
You can also get what’s called a dual sport motorcycle. It has large tires and it rides well on road or off road.
Or you can get an off- road motorcycle, also called a dirt bike, which doesn’t require a motorcycle license to ride one, but you can’t ride it on the streets. They may have no headlights or turn signals.
No matter if you choose a used or new cruiser, custom, chopper, tour bike, foreign sport bike, crotch rocket or other sport bike or an off-road or dirt bike, make sure to compare the costs before you buy a any motorcycle. If you choose one of the crotch rockets, shop around for the best price, try to take it for a test drive and consider buying a used crotch rocket the first time around to avoid expensive repairs.
