I'd place less focus on what how the bike is safer (more visible, maneuverable, whatever) and more focus on what it says about the rider that they choose to be riding that bike.

Cruiser riders say sportbikes are more dangerous- sport bike riders say cruiser riders are more dangerous. Oregon 2012 stats say they're BOTH over-represented in crash numbers. Under represented are dual sports (indiscriminate of size) and touring bikes.
