Sport-touring motorcycles are a newer hybrid of motorcycles that have only really started dominating the bike scene in the last ten years. They combine the comfort of a cruiser, and the agility of a sport bike into a motorcycle that feels light, nimble and comfortable. They allow you to cruise the highways or engage in spirited mountain driving with no more than an adjustment of body position and a flick of your wrist.
Sport tourers feature a more upright ergonomic riding position which works out much better for your body, combine this with their great wind and weather protection offered from their fairings and you’re able to stay in the saddle for an extended period. They often have an increased luggage capacity offering side saddle bags and a rear behind the seat bag that allow you to easily rack up the miles on extended trips.
The difference between sport bikes and sport touring motorcycles also extends to design functionality with a longer wheelbase and a more sloping steering angle which lends to straight line driving ability. A sport touring bike will also tend to feature more advancements in technology such as ABS and or traction control which are often not offered or wanted on a sport bike.
