That would be because bikers can buy homologation specials fresh off the circuit, and carfags don't get anything that's even a little close unless it's a detuned rally car.

If bikes were like cars, everything would be some sort of cruiser with a jockey shifter and twin shocks, and a basic bitch CBR600 would cost more than your house.

Manufacturing costs have nothing to do with this. You can blame the free market for not really wanting proper sportscars that badly and heavily preferring "grand tourers".

sadly, living in central europe means you get like 3 months of solid winter... two of them with rather large chance of snow, so bikes are not that helpful in that matter. Spring/autumn is a different story, you can get away with it if you invest into heated gear but still... not a primary mover, not a practical mover with any usable cargo space to speak of.

Another biggie is that while I can be confident and say I won't crash, there is nothing I can do about guy who crashes into me for one reason or another. And that is a difference between becoming an involuntary organ donor and just a scratched paint on bumper and bulged bodypanels on a typical 2ton SUV.

@5mileys
In Australia you are perhaps not familiar with a snowplow stuck in snow - that much snow. Like, when you call for an ambulance, they send a helicopter, cuz any wheeled vehicle would have hard time to get to you in time in that snow... and I am still talking paved roads, it is just incompetence of local services to keep roads clean, it is not like there are 2 meters of snowfall overnight. In here you see bikers only when it is 15degC outside or warmer, but I guess it is like that in most places.

I am avid mountainbiker, the adrenaline stuff, not shaved legs. I have been on 2 wheels most of the time, I have no problem pinning it downhill at 60kph on a 8inch travel bike.. I am super confident and enjoy 2 wheels - but the moment I get on fuckin 250cc dirtbike I can't mentally push myself to trust it even at 20kph... weird... still cucked when it comes to motorbikes. Pls help me grow a pair.

The first time I went on the back of my dad's bike the acceleration shattered my mind.
That was just a 650cc with two passengers.
18 years later, my current bike is a ZX14R.
Yes they're dangerous, yes often cars are more convenient - it's apples to oranges.
But the melding of operator and machine in blissful.
And the acceleration of a big bike is beyond the COMPREHENSION of almost all other road users, which can cause problems because a bike can be carving up your bonnet between the time you've seen him pull a corner and you decide you'll probably make the turn you're pulling out of.

@Sharpcharm
even sportbike guys say dirt scares the shit out of you and stick to their pavement princesses.

on a roadbike traction is so assured that you can lean to the very edge of your tires. it's like sex - if everything is hot and sticky it's going to end well, and when in doubt, throttle out. i can go WOT on a literbike at the very end of a corner and fly out bouncing off the rev limiter with tire smoke behind me and laugh about it.

on a dirtbike, your tires aren't actually that great and neither is the surface they're on. if you put a literbike in dirt even with dual sport tires it would spin in a circle and fall over.

I didn't say it wasn't the riders fault in that abstract. I'm saying drivers can't be expect to comprehend that level of acceleration.
I'm alive right now because I recognise that. I cater for it :-)

Emberburn

@Playboyize
There's actually an entire racing class for 600s that requires the bikes to be kept mostly stock, and another for liters that is a little more liberal with the modifications but keeps the frame stock. It's a reason why sportbikes keep getting less comfortable and more track oriented despite being roadsters with trunk space 20 years ago.

But you’re so wrong. I got a Honda Goldwing for $6k, and it has as much storage space as a compact sedan, heated grips, heated seat, satnav, a nice sound system, it’s quiet, it’s comfy, and (even with 2 people and 4 days of camping stuff) it will out-accelerate just about any car New or used for even double the price.
All while being cheaper to run and cheaper to insure than my $1900 shitkicker pickup that I never drive
Also, I dare you to ride a motorcycle and not smile. It can’t be done.

Then either don't pull out in front of people, or spot problems in advance like you're meant to do and accelerate away.
Didn't they teach you this on the training course?
Oh, wait, you're american. There was no training course. Your parents taught you to drive a car, and they were taught by their parents, who were taught by their parents who never needed no license back in the day, I tell you what boy.

I advise the latter, while looking long and hard at any bad habits. And also get your first accident out of the way with a small easily-fixed bike and low speeds.

If you ride a motorbike, you will fall off. Probably in your first year. Get it out the way.

It's a great bike. Every ride I love it more. Touring & track no not really. Don't really care about track, it would be good to get some professionals correct my mistakes so I could be safer and cooler in the valleys, but it's expensive.
Will get around to touring but finding time is hard, biggest ride was maybe 500km, shoulder and arms were fine but bum gets sore.
She handles well, you work harder in the tightest corners fighting the increased gyroscopic force and always must fight back the torque it's throwing down.
B roads/smooth sweeping is joy enough on this thing and you can give it a little pull in those and feel it grunt and shit out a fat serve of power.

I consider my safety while riding as well user. Riding a bike isn’t a death sentence unless you’re riding like a fucking moron (see every American biker dashcam video where they flip out over nothing).

I’ve only been riding for 15 years but you can generally tell when someone is going to pull out in front of you or merge into you and having a fast bike means you can get out of these situations with ease.

The only thing that holds a bike back from a dead stop is the power to weight ratio resulting in the front end jumping up off the road. That's why the 0-60 on my bike is a few tenths of a second more than the Tesla. At any other time nothing else on the road can touch me except another superbike.
