Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Triumph, MV Agusta, United Motors Hypersports, Zero Motorcycles, Erik Buell Racing, BMW Motorrad, Victory Motorcycles, Suzuki, and KTM.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is use of IMU sensors in super-sport motorcycles. The inertial measurement unit (IMU) is an electronic device that is used to measure and report a motorcycle's specific force (the non-gravitational force per unit mass), angular velocity, and the changes in the magnetic field surrounding the motorcycle or specific parts of the motorcycle.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increasing number of racing events to improve the adoption rates of super-sport motorcycles. The racing market is a key driver for the growth of the global super-sport motorcycle market. Hence, its performance directly affects the adoption of the same. The British Supersport Championship and the Supersport World Championship are some of the prominent international super-sport motorcycle racing events, and their growing coverage and viewership are critical for the market growth.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is rise of engine downsizing and lightweighting in super-sport bikes. The viewership for bike racing events depends on the noise, dirt, torque, and sheer adrenaline rush that a powerful bike can invoke. However, regulations by the governing bodies of super-sports championships have attempted to stifle the performances of bikes by engine downsizing and lightweighting over the years. These processes are aimed at reducing emissions, but they have affected the viewership to a considerable extent. They have also led to a decline in the revenue in terms of ticket sales and airtime.
