How different are the bikes they race from the ones you get across showrooms in India?

Supercross bikes and showroom motorcycles in India differ in their design and purpose. Supercross bikes are specialized off-road motorcycles built for competitive Supercross racing on tracks with jumps and obstacles. They have enhanced suspension, lighter frames, and more powerful engines compared to typical showroom motorcycles.
Showroom motorcycles in India are generally designed for on-road use and cater to daily commuting or recreational riding. They prioritize comfort, fuel efficiency, and versatility for various road conditions. These bikes often have less aggressive suspension setups and are not optimized for the extreme conditions of Supercross racing.
To summarise, Supercross bikes are purpose-built for off-road racing, while showroom motorcycles in India are designed for everyday on-road use.

How fast do the riders go?

Speeds vary depending on the track, but you can expect to see competitors going in excess of 80 KMPH at a typical Supercross race.

Riders fly 70 feet in distance while flying as high as a three-story building of jumps called “triple jumps.”
