Sport-Touring Motorcycles

Sport-touring motorcycles include Honda VFR1200F, Triumph Sprint GT, Kawasaki Concours 14, Aprilia Mana 850 GT, and Ducati Multistrada 1200S Touring.

While the name “sport touring” implies a hybrid of a sportbike and a touring motorcycle, in reality sport-touring motorcycles are a little more difficult to define. These are bikes designed to take you great distances in relative comfort, but without all the heft of a typical touring motorcycle. Compared to touring motorcycles, sport-tourers are far lighter and much more agile. However, they do lack some of the creature comforts of a ponderous true touring rig. If you shift the comparison to sportbikes, sport-touring motorcycles offer a more relaxed, upright seating position and far more storage space. Sport-tourers are some of the most versatile on-road motorcycles in the industry.
