Naked

Essentially, this is a sportbike that sheds all superfluous weight in a bid to maximize performance. There's typically a dearth of drag-inducing body panels, and the engine is frequently used as a stressed unit to displace a chunk of the frame. As a performance-centric machine, it runs with an aggressive rider's triangle that both enables and encourages you to throw around some body English though it's a bit more relaxed than what you'd get from a proper supersport. These bikes are the neo bobbers, and are typically of Asian or European design and manufacture. (Honda CB1000R, Kawasaki Z900 and KTM 1290 Super Duke.)
