Types of motorcycles

Motorcycles offer a thrilling sense of freedom and adventure on the open road, but there are certain types of motorcycles that are more commonly involved in motor vehicle collisions than others. These bikes can be more difficult for the beginner to handle and maneuver, due to style and weight, or they may be more powerful compared to other styles of bikes, which can also make them more difficult to handle on certain terrain.

    What Styles of Motorcycles Are Commonly Involved in Accidents?

    Several types of motorcycles are more commonly involved in collisions due to various factors.

    Sport Bikes

    Sport bikes or supersport motorcycles, are designed for high performance and speed. They have powerful engines, lightweight frames, and aggressive riding positions, making them more likely to be involved in accidents due to their increased acceleration, higher speeds, and the potential for inexperienced riders to overestimate their abilities.


    Cruisers are characterized by their laid-back riding positions, low seat heights, and large engines. Factors such as limited maneuverability, a higher center of gravity, and sometimes reduced braking performance can contribute to accidents.

    Touring Bikes

    Touring motorcycles are designed for long-distance travel and often come with additional features such as large fairings, saddlebags, and comfortable seating. The larger size and weight of touring bikes can make them more challenging to handle, particularly in tight or congested traffic situations.

    Mopeds and scooters

    Mopeds and scooters are popular choices for urban commuting due to their smaller size, fuel efficiency, and ease of maneuverability. However, they are often involved in collisions due to their low visibility, especially in heavy traffic.

    Off-road motorcycles

    Off-road motorcycles, such as dirt bikes and motocross bikes, are designed for use in off-road environments. While collisions on off-road motorcycles may not be as common on public roads, they can occur during off-road events or when riders attempt to use them in inappropriate settings.


    When Should I Speak to an Attorney After a Collision?

    If you've been involved in a motorcycle accident caused by another motorist's negligence, speaking with a motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible can help strengthen your claim. When working with an attorney, they will begin by investigating your accident immediately, gathering vital evidence, and building a case against the negligent motorist. If you wait several days or weeks to contact an attorney, important evidence may be washed away, lost, or destroyed.

    At MVP Accident Attorneys, our experienced team of motorcycle accident lawyers can handle every aspect of your injury claim, from investigating the crash and filing the paperwork to negotiating with the insurance company for a fair settlement that will cover all accident related expenses.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
