Motorcycles are produced with four-stroke and two-stroke engines consisting of up to four cylinders. The frame of motorcycles consists of steel, usually a combination of sheets and tubes. The wheels are made of steel or aluminum rims having spokes or they can even be alloy wheels. Day by day, composite, graphite and magnesium parts are increasingly being used as they have better strength and weigh comparatively lesser. The clutch and throttle, which control the engine speed, are operated by twist-type controls on the handgrips. There is a lever near handgrip that controls the front-wheel brake. On the other hand, the rear-wheel brake is totally engaged by a foot pedal. In most of the modern motorcycles the front brake is a hydraulic disc brake. The rear brake can either be a disc or a drum. Nowadays electric starters are replacing the conventional kick starters.
