What different types of motorcycles are there?

If you are a keen motorcyclist, you will be well aware of the many varieties of motorbikes on the market. But if you’re pretty new to the motorcycling world, you may be shocked to learn that not all bikes are the same; there are actually seven widely recognised categories, which are:

  • Sport 
  • Touring
  • Standard Street Bikes
  • Dual Purpose
  • Cruiser
  • Dirt Bike
  • Scooters, Mopeds and Underbones

With the name ‘Superbike Rental’, it will come as no surprise to learn that we don’t stock scooters or mopeds! However, we do have a large fleet of powerful, well-maintained motorcycles to suit all needs and personalities.

Tourer

Designed for those who want to venture further afield, Tourers are specifically designed to chew up the miles in total comfort. With bigger engines, larger fuel tanks and as much storage space as is possible, they are ideal for travelling across counties, countries and continents.

Superbike Rental’s Tourer range includes the BMW R 1200 RT SE (2013), the Honda VFR 1200F (2013) and the Suzuki Bandit 650 SA (2009).

Adventure Tourer

As traditional Tourers, Adventure Tourers are generally larger than standard motorcycles with accessories such as luggage, comfortable seats and heated grips. However, Adventure Tourers are designed to have some off-road capabilities and are usually taller, with skinnier tyres with more aggressive treads.

Superbike Rental has a wide range of Adventure Touring motorbikes available to hire, such as:

Sportsbikes

A sportsbike is focused on speed, acceleration, braking and cornering, usually at the expensive of fuel economy and comfort. Almost indistinguishable from racing motorcycles, sportsbikes are all about the speed and the thrill.

Here at Superbike Rental, we understand that ‘need for speed’ but we are also very stringent in ensuring the safety of both the rider and the bike. We have a wide range of sportsbikes available to hire, including the Ducati Evo Corse SE, the Yamaha YZF 600 – R6 and the Honda CBR 600 RR.

Street Bikes

It’s simple – a street bike is a motorcycle that has is designed – and permitted – to be ridden on public roads, as opposed to off-road bikes. It features good speed, a comfortable ride and durability, and is a great entry-level option for novice riders.

Superbike Rental currently stocks three street bikes:

Superbikes

Derived from standard production street bikes, superbikes are quick and powerful, with as much as 200bhp. They are optimised to feature extreme acceleration, aggressive braking and unthinkable cornering. Two of our most popular superbikes are the BMW S1000RR HP4 Carbon and the Ducati 1199s Panigale, which produces a claimed 195bhp yet has switchable modes to reduce the brake horse power in wet and other dangerous conditions.

Cruiser

Think of ‘Easy Rider’ and you’ll think of a Cruiser; motorcycles that emulate the design of American motorbikes manufactured from the 1930s to the 1960s, such as the iconic Harley Davidson. If you want to channel Dennis Hopper in the middle of Essex, why not contact Superbike Rental to book our Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster?

Stay on track – hire a motorbike Sat Nav with Superbike Rental

So you’ve hired the motorbike, you’ve chosen the route and you’re ready and raring to go. But what happens if you miss that turn, or you find yourself in a traffic jam and don’t know the area well enough to deviate from the plan?

Just as Sat Navs have revolutionised the way a driver plans their journey, a motorcycle GPS navigation system can make a rider’s trip a lot less stressful. A good portable motorbike Sat Nav will tell you where to go, how far away you are and how long it will take to reach your destination. It will also help you avoid heavy traffic and provide you with alternative routes if you do find yourself getting stuck.

In fact, if you wanted to, you could plan your entire trip with your motorcycle GPS, taking in food and petrol stops, overnight accommodation and places of interest.

Superbike Rental’s motorcycles can not only be hired to ride in the UK, but to explore Europe. At our base just off the M25 in Brentwood, Essex, we have a wide range of superbikes, sportsbikes and tourers, all of which are recent models and maintained to the highest possible standard. All of our rental prices include VAT and full comprehensive insurance to travel in the UK.

Many of our bikes have navigated Pyrenees, Alps, Barcelona, Milan, the Italian Lakes, St Tropez and many more. If you are planning a trip abroad, we will sort your European insurance and breakdown cover*, leaving you free to plan your touring holiday.

Superbike Rental also has a selection of high quality motorcycle Sat Navs and mounts available to hire, including: http://www.superbikerental.co.uk

  • TomTom Rider and TomTom Rider Europe
  • Garmin Sat Nav
  • Garmin zūmo
  • Ducati Sat Nav
  • BMW Navigator 5

You can choose the route you want to take, whether it’s the fastest way to get from A to B, one that avoids motorways or for those of you touring, the most scenic. With some, you can even plan a winding route!

Bluetooth technology feeds the instructions from the Sat Nav through to the rider’s helmet.

The TomTom Rider Europe comes pre-loaded with maps of 45 countries in Europe, ensuring that wherever you are travelling to, you won’t get lost on the way.
