There are fundamentally 6 types of motorcycling



Standard motorcycles are the oldest motorcycle style that manufacturers have been producing. A standard combines an upright seating position with the handlebar at a comfortable distance away from the rider. The foot controls fall right underneath or a little forward of the rider.

Off-road motorcycles, also known as dirt bikes or scramblers, are specially designed for off-road use. The term off-road refers to driving surfaces that are not conventionally paved. These are rough surfaces, often created naturally, such as sand, gravel, a river, mud or snow

Cruiser: The difference between a sports bike and a cruiser is in the riding position. The cruisers have lower seating and wide handlebars inclined towards the rear, making them just perfect and comfortable for longer rides.

Sports bikes is a motorcycle designed and optimized for speed, acceleration, braking, and cornering on asphalt concrete race tracks and roads. They are mainly designed for performance at the expense of comfort, fuel economy, and storage in comparison with other motorcycles.

Touring bikes are made for touring wide open long roads. They are big bikes with powerful engines. They need to be able to carry luggage or a passenger. Therefore, the stronger the better, however, it’s daunting for newcomers due to the weight and power.

Dual-purpose: these motorcycles are intended to serve two purposes; street-legal driving and off-road terrain. The bike is a little higher than your average bike because it is made to go over obstacles when off-roading
