Looking for a motorbike to make the most of the roads? Find out why you should look no further than a sports bike and how we can help you to make this a reality.
If you really want to experience the roads you’re driving on with a motorbike, a sports model is the way to go. With emphasis on speed, cornering and performance sports bikes truly let you experience the thrill of motorbike riding.
Although there is no technical specification for a “sports” motorbike, most manufacturers will have models that have been designed to maximise riding experience and will be clearly advertised as such. This means there is a huge variety of sports motorbikes to choose from, letting you experience life on two wheels exactly how you want.
If there’s any type of motorbike that typifies the experience of being “one with the road”, a sports bike would be it. There is perhaps no stronger reason to opt for a sports bike than that.
A lightweight sports bike is generally classed as a motorcycle up to 500cc. If you’re sticking to 125cc motorbikes, you will be able to ride this with an A1 Motorcycle Licence. However, if you’re looking for a sports bike between 126-500cc you’ll need an A2 Motorcycle Licence to be road-legal.
Middleweight or superbike sports motorbikes are those with an engine displacement of 500cc or higher. These therefore require an unrestricted A Motorcycle Licence. unrestricted A Licences can be obtained by taking an additional practical test if you have held an A2 Licence for 2 years, or via Direct Access if you are 24 or older. Direct Access requires a CBT, theory tests and practical tests.
