This class includes two-wheelers that have an engine capacity that ranges between 400cc and 700cc and provides high-power performance to long-stroke engine cruisers.

A majority of the developments in this segment are expected to originate from the two-wheeler markets in the Americas and Europe. This segment is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period, due to the increasing preference for road trip tourism and adventure tourism.
