The 10 Best Motorcycles for Beginners

I am an avid bike rider, as in motorcycles. Don’t get me wrong, I also ride traditional bikes, which are great for low-impact exercise. The two are similar in that once you learn how to ride them you never forget. I have to be honest about it all, however. It is a tad bit more difficult to learn how to ride a motorcycle than it is a bike. With a bike, the most important thing is balance and breaking. The same is true for motorcycles, but you are balancing hundreds of pounds and the wrong breaking decision could prove catastrophic

Like bicycles, some motorcycles are easier to learn on than others. If you are new to riding a motorcycle, there are some things that you should consider when choosing your first bike, subsequently leading to a smoother learning experience. Once you master the skill of riding, you will be able to move on to more premium and high-performing bikes.

While there are a lot of starter bikes out there, there are not all built equally. We have created a list of the top 10 starter bikes across categories.

1. Honda CB1100 Ex

Not only is the CB100 EX an attractive style but is maneuverability makes it one of the top picks. Some of the features that make it both stylish and idea for a beginning is its simplicity in design. The seamless fuel tank and the durable chassis provide durability, which is vital, and a sleek bold appearance that which catch the eye of onlookers. It is easy to handle, making it perfect for beginners.

2. Yamaha YZF-R3

If you are like me, you have a thing for sport-bikes, often referred to as crotch rockets. Yamaha has a long history of make some explosive and stylish sport-bikes and the R-series is one of their best. While you will eventually want to move up to the R7 (700 ccs) or the R1 (1,000 ccs) version, the R3 is a great bike to start with because it is lightweight and easy to handle.

3. Kawasaki Ninja 300

The Ninja, by Kawasaki, is a classic crotch rocket with lots of history. The 300 has enough punch to get your adrenaline pumping while having a weight and size that is ideal for beginners. The digital fuel injection technology helps to make up for what is lacking in engine size.

4. Scrambler Ducati Desert Sled

While this bike is designed for off-road riding, it offers an immensely smooth ride on the highway. The fact that it bears the Ducati name speaks volume to the quality of the bike and its performance. Ducati is one of the most respected brands in the industry. The lightweight offers stability and easy handling.

5. Honda CRF250l Rally

Honda has more than one bike on the list because of the fact the company has a wide range of bikes and their history in the industry is impeccable. The CRF250 is plenty of bike for off-road riding, and adequate for highway travel. The bike is designed to function as a crossover and it meets the challenge. The lightweight and easy maneuverability make it a great choice for someone who is still learning how to ride.

6. Honda Rebel 300

The Rebel is an ideal option for beginners because of its style, power, and value. Because the bike sits lower than most bikes it is extremely comfortable for cruising and daily commuting. The lightweight fuel-injected engine provides plenty of power to give a beginner that adrenaline rush when they need it.

7. Harley Davidson Sportster Iron 883

When it comes to cruisers and sporty street bikes, Harley Davidson is considered royalty in the industry. The Iron 883 is powerful and stylish in ways that you can even imagine. Most Harley Davidson Models are designed for the experienced rider, but there are a few models that are designed for beginners, and this is at the top of the list. It looks great and rides easy.

8. Suzuki SV650

I have a certain affinity with Suzuki, a company that specializes in sports bikes and off-road bikes. While my favorite by the brand is the GXR 1000, the SC 650 more suitable for the novice. The 645 cc V-twin engine provides substantial horsepower that allows this bike to get up and go, while maintaining a light durable frame.

9. Yamaha Bolt Cruiser

If you are looking for a cruiser to put on the highway, comfort will be immensely important. The fact that the bike rides low and the seat is designed for comfort more than style means that you will be able to ride long distances without any discomfort. Easy-to-read digital guages is another feature that adds to the style and functionality of this beautiful bike.

10. Bonneville T120 Triumph

If you are looking for something with a timeless look, the T120 is a flashback in time. But, don’t let the classic look fool you; this bike is powered by 1200 ccs, ensuring that it has all the power you need to get up and go. While it does not have the flare of some of the other bikes, it is easy to handle and it is comfortable.
