Super bike

The term Superbike is a word that is trademarked solely by Ducati Motor Holding, but due to the popularity of the motorcycles in this segment, the super bike term has been generally adopted to describe all bike (regardless of manufacturer) in this classification. Super bikes are large displacement super sport bikes. They have the exact same characteristics as the smaller super sport bikes which are mainly focused on race track performance, but are powered by larger engines that are usually sized around 800 cc (48.8 cu in) to 1100 cc (67.1 cu in). A typical super bike will carry a wet weight between 400 lb (181 kg) to 480 lb (218 kg) and can produce 170 hp (127 kW). Super bikes with a displacement very close to 1000 cc (61 cu in) are sometimes referred to as liter bikes as the engine displaces approximately one liter.
Examples include the Ducati 1098, Honda CBR1000RR, and Yamaha YZF-R1.
