There is a lot to consider when getting your first motorcycle, namely, we have power, seating positing, and your aesthetic preference, all these will play a factor in how comfortable you ride your motorcycle. There are a lot of choices when it comes to choosing “the one” so let’s dive in and discover what beginner bike will suit you best.
Naked because unlike their sportbike counterparts, they have fewer fairings exposing the engine. Motorcycles like the KTM Duke 390 are in this category. Considered the best of both worlds, fun, sporty, nimble, and you can definitely use it for commutes and weekend rides.
What do you think of when you hear Cruisers? Of course, those Harley Davidson motorcycles with loud exhaust pipes, cruisin’ down the street and turning heads on the way. Awesome as it sounds, I’m sure you wouldn’t want to get on a Harley when you’re still learning, so a good substitute to learn on is the Honda Rebel 500. Perfect for a commute or a weekend ride on the country road, even with a 471cc engine, the Rebel’s no slack giving you enough power until you’re confident enough for your next bike.
Do you live in a place where not only asphalt roads need to be traversed but also gravel and dirt roads as well? Fear not, the V-strom’s got you covered, an adventure bike from Suzuki who makes really good motorcycles for, of course, great prices.
Sports Oriented Motorcycles
You enjoy a leisurely commute or an easy weekend ride, but something is still not satisfying you - the track must be calling out to you. If you have a yearning for riding on a track, well then, you’ll need to start somewhere, May I suggest the Yamaha R3. The R3 is a very popular entry-level sportbike, not only because it looks the part but also because it has a rev friendly 321cc engine ready to get you through the baby steps of track riding.
So there you have it, the choice of how you want to ride is up to you now. A gentle reminder though, when you purchase your motorcycle, other than acquiring good riding gear, get a life insurance policy as well, as our lives are of the utmost importance.
