What Effect Does Motorcycle Road Racing Have On The Environment

Motorcycles were more fuel-efficient than vehicles and produced fewer carbon emissions, but they still produced much more smog-forming hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides, as well as the poisonous air pollutant carbon monoxide. Savage said on the show that motorcycles are just as bad for the world as cars. 

Advantages & Disadvantages of Motorcycle

Advantages are:

  1. Cheaper Licensing & Taxes

Motorcycle registration and taxation are much lower than those for cars. Since motorcycles use less gasoline, the government offers discounts on motorcycle registration.

  1. Parking

There is a shortage of parking in the big city. If you have a bigger car, finding a parking spot can be tough, but with a motorcycle, you can park wherever you want, and there are even designated motorcycle parking spaces.

  1. Less Fuel

A motorcycle consumes significantly less fuel than a vehicle, particularly over longer distances. Since a motorcycle’s fuel tank is smaller, it will cost less to fuel up at the pump, and you will find yourself at the gas pump less often.

  1. Traffic

When you need to drive somewhere, traffic is still a problem. You don’t have to idle behind a sea of cars waiting for the traffic to move while you ride a motorcycle. Rather than waiting for their turn to drive, motorbikes will ride in between parked cars on the highway.

  1. Less Repair Cost

A motorcycle needs fewer repairs and servicing than a car. Motorcycle replacements are also less expensive than auto repairs.

Disadvantages are:

  1. Personal Safety

While there are financial benefits of riding a motorcycle, there is also the possibility of personal protection. Motorbike riders, unlike car drivers, do not have doors, air belts, or a bumper to protect them from the property and other cars.

  1. Problem for other Drivers

Other road users are frequently unaware of motorcycles and they cannot often see them in their rear- and side-view mirrors. Drivers will change lanes around motorcycles or even collide with them if they are not paying attention.

How many road riders are involved in an accident?

Motorcycle accidents result in 78.3 percent of confirmed injuries and 4.24 percent of fatalities. Other countries’ statistics back up the US data. Motorcycles have 16 times the rate of serious injury; people killed or wounded, then vehicles, according to the London Department of Transportation.

Is it possible for you to die if you ride a motorcycle?

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 25 motorcyclists die and 451 are hospitalized for every 100 million vehicle miles driven, compared to less than one death and 97 injuries for passengers in passenger cars. A motorcycle rider is less safe than a car driver, and even small mistakes will result in serious accidents.

Conclusion

MotoGP is the most prestigious sport of motorcycle racing. This sport’s bikes are built especially for competition. The MotoGP division uses 1000cc bikes; while the Moto2 and Moto3 classes use 600cc and 250cc four-stroke motorcycles, respectively.
