There are plenty of choices when you go shopping for a motorbike and whether you buy a new or used model, the first thing you are going to have to decide is the type of bike you prefer. If you already know what type of bike you want, that’s fine, go ahead and enjoy your new purchase. On the other hand, if you are looking at your options at the moment, it could be worth exploring all of the different styles available for your own peace of mind. To make things easier, here’s a quick guide to different bike types to help you choose.
Cheap to run and insure due to their small engine size, scooters are perfect if you want a nippy little bike to commute through busy city streets. You won’t exactly get the same level of performance as you would from bigger bikes, but scooters are easy to ride and won’t exactly break the bank when it comes to operating costs. You could buy a retro Lambretta or enjoy the unrivalled handling of a modern Vespa and let it become part of your lifestyle.
Fans of the stripped-back look will instantly be drawn to naked bikes, or machines without fairings to give them a proper introduction. Bikes in this range include the Kawasaki Z1000 and the Suzuki GSX-S1000, stunning machines blessed with aggressive looks and sinister styling. If you are a fan of the retro styling, a naked bike could be just what you are looking for and in recent times unfaired models have enjoyed somewhat of a boom in the motorcycling sector.
If all out speed and brutal acceleration are top of your list, take a look at the latest sports bike designs available right now. Blessed with advanced bike technology, you can take these machines to track days and really unleash the power, whilst getting the most from their savage acceleration and optimum handling. Models like the Suzuki GSX-R 750 and the Ducati SuperSport are popular bikes in this category.
Adventure Sport Bikes
Want to take your bike on an off-road adventure and mirror the antics of Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman? Buy yourself an adventure bike and enjoy the ultimate off the road experience as you tackle a range of challenging surfaces. Big, durable and powerful, bikes such as Honda’s CRF1000L Africa Twin are firm favourites in the off-road market.
As the name suggests, bikes in this category are designed specifically for touring and built with comfort in mind. Capable of covering long distances, luxury tourers such as Honda’s Gold Wing offer the highest levels of refinement and power. With larger engines and delivering smooth power outputs, riders suffer less fatigue and can cover greater distances on this type of bike. If you plan on covering a large mileage and want to tour in style, this is the option for you.
In this category, you will also cruisers, especially models from the legendary Harley-Davidson brand. Many of these have lower seats, longer wheelbases and plenty of chrome features, meaning you can cruise in style. Within the custom bike range, you might also find café racer style bikes designed with fans of retro in mind, including BMW’s R80 and Triumph’s Bonneville Bobber, with its very distinctive post-war styling.
