According to reports, in 2005 supersport bikes and sport bikes made up less than 10 percent of registered motorcycles, but accounted for more than 25 percent of deaths in motorcycle accidents. The fatality rate for supersport bike riders is nearly 4 times higher than other types of motorcycles resulting in 22.5 deaths per 10,000 registered motorcycles.
Approximately 40 percent of all motorcycle fatalities involved riders who were not properly licensed. To ensure the safety of your life and the lives of people around you, Michigan requires riders 18 years of age and older to enroll in a riders education course before you apply for a motorcycle permit. In addition, an instruction course is strongly suggested but not required.
