Hey Dup

As far as i know, the 600 is a super sport, 1000 super bike, anything over 1000 is a hyper sport.

Cruisers you lye back like a Harley and tourers are lie the VFR800 and Triumph ST1030.

But then people also say that the ZX14 is a super tourer as it is comfy and very very fast

Yeah, I agree whokilledkenny, the reason I asked the question is that today's 600's like the ZX6R, R6, GSXR600, Honda 600RR are very much on par with yesterday's 1000's and 1100's which were classified as Superbikes, and today's 1000's like the ZX10R, R1 etc. are on par with yesterday's Hypersports like the Busa (ouch!!, now I am going to get it!)
Yes I know the 600's are called supersports, but in the light of above, can they not now also be referred to as "Superbikes". They are all "Super"!!

What's my bike? A 97 9r? I can pick it up in 3rd gear around 100 mph. Is it a tourer? It not all power like the new literbikes but it can do it with warm tires.
