A motorbike roller coaster (sometimes called a boosterbike roller coaster) is a type of steel roller coaster trains introduced by Vekoma. The unique feature of a motorbike coaster is the trains, wich are side-less and have unique restraints. They are typically modeled after motorbikes, but jet-ski and horse-shaped trains also exist.
