they do have sport bike specific ones.they do not have the big circle of rubber that protects the inside of your hand on them, like the mx ones. i ran renthals (soft compound) on all my bikes. i had to put new ones on every year because they wore out, but the grip was second to none. :thumbup
Renthal's a wise choice. Check your local parts dealer, for one reason or another,
they've become easier to come by. I searched for a while to find mine. Once I
found and installed them, I freakin' love em'. You will too.
