Sports bike is not merely looks, rather it’s more about engine. Call it a sport bike or sportbike or sportsbike or a sport bike, when compared to any other bike, a sports bike is speedier, has a better acceleration, has a better braking, and is smoother on sharp bends, though not as comfortable or economical on fuel part. It satisfies the need of speed and thrill together. Though, nothing is as such fixed and is much dependent country-to-country, sports bikes have three to four major categories, as per the usage, horsepower, displacement, etc. of bikes. The most common classification includes lightweight or the entry level sportsbikes; Middleweight or supersport bikes; the last, but not the least, the Superbike or also liter-class. Lightweight bikes, or entry-level or small bikes, are the mini forms of superbikes. There are some 2 stroke bikes, which perform better than the 4 stroke ones. Lightweight sportsbikes feature a displacement of up to 500 cc. We can place Honda CBR 150R or Honda CBR 250R, Yamaha YZF R15, the recently launched KTM Duke 200, Bajaj Pulsar 200, Hero Karizma, Kawasaki Ninja 250R, TVS Apache RTR 250 as a few examples of lightweight sports bikes in India. The Mid-sized bikes, or call them supersport bikes, come with a displacement of 600 to 700 cc. There are KTM Duke 690, Triumph Daytona 675, Triumph Street Triple 675, Triumph America, Ducati Monster 796, Hyosung GT 650R, BMW F650 GS, for example.

To name a few superbikes, we have Honda CBR 1000RR, Suzuki Hayabusa 1300, Suzuki Bandit S, Suzuki Intruder M1800R, Ducati Hypermotorad, etc. Some of the major companies manufacturing sportsbikes for and in India are Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Ducati, BMW, Suzuki, Triumph, KTM, Hyosung, and Hero. Another segment that we can talk about while talking of sports bikes is Sports Tourers. These are basically sports bikes and tourers mating.

One of the most recent sports tourer in India is Bajaj Discover 125 ST. Others that can be named are Honda VFR1200F, Kawasaki Ninja 300R, Kawasaki Ninja 400R, Pulsar 220, etc.
