Does this issue really need to be complicated/debated? They do call certain types of bikes sport-bikes, sport-touring and dual-sports after all.
There are sports cars and sport utility vehicles and generally sporty cars too but people do not call driving, even when done recreationally like cruising a sport. Face it, the general non riding public sees bikes as toys.
