10 Best Beginner Motorcycles

Let’s face it. Learning to ride a motorcycle isn’t easy. If it were, everyone would be riding them. So, by simply wanting to start riding a bike, you’re already a cut above the rest of the road users out there. By looking here for our choices of the best beginner motorcycles, you’re also showing that you’re approaching the selection of your first bike in a smart way. Kudos to you for not succumbing to the siren song of the latest, hottest high-performance machinery. There will be plenty of time for that. Right now, you want to focus on learning how to ride properly.

Here at Motorcycle.com, we’re big proponents of starting with smaller bikes before moving up to more advanced machinery. For example, I have written many times about how my first bike was a Kawasaki EX500 which I bought in 1989 when the small-bike options were relatively slim. Now, the manufacturers have realized that there is a market for smaller motorcycles – as long as they are built with the same care and attention as bigger, costlier bikes.

What follows is a listing, in alphabetical order by manufacturer, of the best beginner motorcycles we think budding MOrons should consider as their first motorcycle.
