Standard Motorcycle Reviews
Standard-type motorcycles have a riding position midway between the forward-rotated position of a sportbike and the reclined arrangement of a cruiser, putting the rider in a very natural position not unlike a low dirtbike. Standards often have little or no fairing and limited bodywork, and many are appropriately termed as Naked bikes. Standards are popular for commuting and other city riding, as the upright riding position is comfortable and gives greater visibility in traffic.
