How different types of motorcycles offer varying safety features

| Feb 1, 2019 | Motorcycle Accidents |

As a motorcyclist, you likely enjoy the freedom that comes with getting out on the open road. While aesthetics and performance are likely to motivate you to buy one motorcycle over another, there are safety features that certain motorcycles have that you should be on the lookout for when you head out to shop for one as well.

Cruiser bikes

Many motorcycles manufactured by Harley Davidson or Indian Motorcycles can be described as cruisers. They generally are manufactured using a lot of chrome, have a high torque engine, a wider rear tire and a low-lying seat. Lightweight cruisers may be optimal bikes for a beginner to ride because they’re easier to maneuver at slower speeds.

Dresser/touring motorcycles

Touring bikes generally have travel compartments and comfortable seats that allow both you and a companion to ride on it. These dressers, as they’re often called, are often used by California bikers going on long-distance trips. They offer many safety features that you’d generally only find in cars such as an electronic suspension and an anti-lock brake system (ABS).

Sports bikes

Teenagers and young adults who have grown up watching thrillers have often watched actors or their stunt doubles traveling on a sleek, high-powered motorcycle weaving in and out of traffic trying to get away from a captor. In most of these movies, a sports bike is being used to do this.

Sports bikes are often used in these situations because they can reach speeds in excess of 100 mph. They’re also used in these scenes because they offer some of the most cutting-edge safety technology such as high-performance brakes and an enhanced, adjustable suspension system.

One key point to remember, though, is that they work best when they’re driven at a fast rate of speed by a skilled driver on a short trip. They’re not intended to be driven for long distances.

There are many different types of motorcycles and motorized bikes, both gas and electric out on the road in Los Angeles. There are safety pros and cons associated with each of them, especially if you’re only in the beginning stages of learning how to operate one of them. An attorney can advise you of how your choice of bike and other factors put you at risk of having a catastrophic crash.
