That professional/amateur thing refers to the rider, not the bike. But the bike can create the situation where you have to hang off the side of it to get around. What looks really great can simply be due to an excellent machine. Many guys do not know the difference between good and bad. What is in that photo is the difference I encountered when I substituted 18 inch wheels for 19 inch wheels on my Triton. It became exhausting to ride.

My right foot can no longer "hook", as circled in the "professional" photo (since the lower leg break). In that position, my foot would be doing as circled in the "amateur" photo.

Since I've never come anywhere close to scraping any part of my body intentionally in a lean, I am somewhere between amateur and legend, I suppose...

The amateur is on a maxi scooter. Kinda looks a bit like a Yamaha NMAX. Not sure tho. But it isnt a sport bike.
