A 1000cc super sports bike may not be the most ideal option if you’re buying your first-ever motorbike. However, once you have found your feet, you may want to venture into this world of speed and power.
Super sports bikes are desirable because they’re incredibly fast and have an impressive power-to-weight ratio. Below, we will reveal what you need to know about them.
What is a super sports bike?
A super sports bike typically has a 1000cc engine. It delivers better performance than a standard sports bike because of its electronics, riding position, engine tuning, and overall setup and ergonomics.
Super sports bikes are usually racing bikes that have been tuned down sufficiently to be deemed legal street bikes. This is why you usually see the label ‘RR’ in the model name – this stands for Race Replica. It indicates that the bike is very close to the racing version.
For example, the Honda CBR1000RR is a super sports bike, whereas the Honda CBR 650R is a regular sports bike.
It’s worth mentioning that there is no universal definition of a super sports bike, so do keep this in mind when looking for bikes online.
Why are super sports bikes so popular?
For most bikers, it’s quite simple; when these bikes are ridden correctly, they’re the most incredible machines on two wheels. They provide you with a completely different riding experience when compared with a regular sports bike which is why people are happy to pay out a bit more for one..
If you have a need for speed, a super sports bike is the thing for you. Whether you’re on the straights or going through a corner, you’ll be going fast.
Of course, if you’re looking for something more practical and less intimidating, stick with a sports motorbike. But for those who are experienced and want something rapid, a super sports bike fits the bill.
