Being “vertically challenged” is rough: you’re hard to spot in a crowd, you can’t see squat at concerts, and it’s a struggle to hop on many of the rides at the amusement park. The worst part of all is trying to find a motorcycle that’ll allow you to touch the ground. Some of the saddles on today’s motorcycles are so high only basketball players dare throw a leg over.
However, here we’ve compiled a list of 10 motorcycles even short people can enjoy riding. The seat heights are all manageable for those with shorter inseams, providing a confidence-inspiring reach to the ground. While it would have been easy to flood this list with beginner bikes, as they generally have among the lowest saddles, we realize there are plenty of experienced riders looking for more power than a 250 offers.
We’ve kept the list limited to new models and have tried our best to keep the list diverse with something for riders of all types. Have something to add? Tell us in the comments section below.
