A dual sport (dual purpose) motorcycle somewhat bridges the street and off-road categories. Generally, a dual sport motorcycle is one that is street legal and can be ridden off-road as well. These are versatile bikes, but they are also compromise bikes. Some are more suited for around town and easy trails; some work well on the highway and make good adventure touring bikes; some are more dirt oriented: you can ride them on the street, but they are much more suited for off-road / trail use (dirt bikes with lights). Some bikes in this category are quite “tame” and built to a budget, while others are essentially competition bikes, with high-end components, made street legal.
One of the easiest ways to give your bike snappier acceleration and feel like it has a lot more power is a simple sprocket change. Or get the best motorcycle mods to optimize your beast.
Don’t buy a dual sport bike and expect it to work great everywhere, in all conditions, with a single setup or configuration. It’s just not going to happen. If you’re not going to be riding aggressively on the street or on the trails, and you want to go most places, then a single setup with all-around (50/50) tires may be just fine. You can also switch between different setups. Unless you have a second set of wheels, though, switching tires frequently would be a real hassle. Changing a front sprocket to change the gearing does not take much time or effort (depends on the bike).
Motorcycle modifications are one of the most inevitable parts when you buy a bike; it’s either for speed or for the aesthetics that one would opt to modify her/his motorcycle. Almost every motorcyclist is willing to take the chance to increase the performance of her/his bike. There are many ways to improve a bike’s power character. With utmost certainty, a different silencer, fuel injection firmware or a new crankshaft profile will affect the power delivery of your bike.
