Riding a motorcycle is somewhat like riding a bike. You must learn how. But when you do, you never forget. However, riding a motorcycle can be a little more difficult than learning to ride a classic bicycle. No need to be discouraged, though. Selecting your beginner motorcycles wisely can help you have a smoother learning experience, so you can eventually move on to premium bikes (or an entire collection!)
The list is based on things such as stability, overall performance, maneuverability, total weight, and seat position. Here are some favorites for those of you that are novices in the bike world:
Yamaha design and build powerful bikes that are famous for having great ergonomics and sporty frames. The YZF-R3 is a good choice for beginners since it is lightweight and easy to handle but still packs a punch with its advanced forged piston design. The seat is positioned for a sports-style riding position that is comfortable and offers you the most total control possible.
The flat seat helps even beginners position their feet firmly on the ground during stops and enhances balance, which is excellent for new riders. Disc brakes give you dependable stopping power every time. There are three color choices and a host of accessories to make this bike your own. This is one of the more low-cost beginner motorcycles on the market, at the bottom of the lower price range. Though, don’t mistake it for cheaply made.
KTM 390 Duke
The 390 Duke by KTM features a top-notch, single-cylinder engine with optimal performance at low to medium torque, making it a great choice for first-time riders. The bike is incredibly slim and lightweight, so it is easy to handle at any speed by any driver.
The seat is high and curved to provide good stability, comfort, and control. The steel frame provides durability and an attractive touch that is complemented by the bold colors and sporty, geometric style. This bike falls in the lower price range, but it doesn’t look or ride like a cheap bike.
