These are some of the best motorcycles for people just learning how to ride.

Kawasaki Ninja 300

The Kawasaki Ninja 300 is among the top motorcycles to choose from. It’s really lightweight, creating an easy ride. Though, the little frame has a lot of power and includes Digital Fuel Injection technology that offers smooth throttle control and a 296cc parallel-twin cylinder engine. 

Enjoy good gas mileage with this bike, up to 66 mpg. The big digital multi-function display paired with the streamlined sporty look makes this bike appear modern and sleek, and it’s a very easy ride for those who are just getting their bike legs. This bike is another affordable choice for beginners, falling in the low-price range.

Scrambler Ducati Desert Sled

This bike is designed for off-road but delivers a smooth highway ride too. The seat is positioned way higher than many average bikes for better balance and control. The suspension is fully adjustable and fastened to a reinforced steel frame for increased durability, even on rugged terrain. 

Electronic Fuel Injection paired with 6-speed straight cut gears provides a smoother and consistent ride. Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires and spoked wheels provide great stability for beginners. These motorcycles fall somewhere in the middle price range and offers plenty of quality for the cost.

Honda CRF250L Rally

Honda’s bikes are all made for speed, but this bike has that and way more. An increase in fuel tank size means fewer stops to fill up, and the small frame is perfect for smaller riders or for beginners who like more maneuverability. The seat sits high enough to give you great control but low enough that you can sit upright, which makes for more comfortable long-distance commutes. 

The Rally includes a few luxury add-ons that the standard CRF250L doesn’t have, like handguards, a windscreen, skid plate, and increased suspension adjustments. All this, paired with extra fairing and side panels and twin headlights, creates a rally-style bike that is timeless. This bike is affordable but packs more punch than other bikes in the low-cost range.
