Full List Of Different Types Of Bikes

There are many different types of bikes.  A motorcycle is typically a two-wheeled vehicle run by a small, loud engine. These vehicles are basically motorized bicycles. But are structured with heavier, sturdier and more complex parts, implying that a motorcycle is more machine than the bicycle.

Motorcycles have various uses, but the obvious primary use is to ride. To serve as a form of quick transportation. Other uses: military and law enforcement, sports/racing, touring,  serving as a symbol of freedom and depending on who is riding it. Motorcycle conventions also allude to yet another purpose for the motorcycle: a showpiece! Motorcycles, like automobiles, are also works of art for those who are mechanically inclined. Like to showcase their unique and innovative machines (concept bikes).

Motor Scooters are short distance motorcycles with small wheels (357 mm or 14 in. in diameter) and engines in the swing arm. Typically, these run less than 125cc, but some larger scooters exceed 250cc. One popular scooter is the Honda Lead 80.

A bicycle/motorcycle hybrid with a two-stroke engine that goes up to 50cc. These have to demand to license in some localities. But their popularity dropped in the mid-1980s, but they are still used today.

These include dirt bikes and are built for rougher terrain. But they have larger, deeper-treaded tires, small engine, long suspension travel. High ground clearance, and no street accessories. These motorcycles have engines that comprise two strokes at a single cylinder. Or four strokes at a single cylinder, and can go as low as 50cc or as high as 750cc, depending on the age of the riders and the size and style of the engine. Trial bikes, which go no more than 250cc, are off-road motorcycles. But these are used for Motocross and Enduros.

Different Types Of Concept Bikes

These are prototypes created to measure the response to innovative designs. New and unique technologies, cost-effectiveness and other factors. However most are never realized, but a small few are released in compromised combination. Form taking into consideration marketing realities, public reaction and preference, and manufacturing capabilities.

Different types of bikes are the rage of the road and off the road. However, these machines are as inspirational as they are dangerous. They require as much respect as they do training and practice to operate. But if treated well, motorcycles will treat riders well.

My mom always told me that a bike was a ‘coffin on two wheels’ haha

That concept bike at the end is probably what we can expect in the near future, electric and most likely automated.

Currently Street/Sports bikes are my favorite but it will be interesting to see what the future brings to the motorcycle world.
