top10-cheapest-motorcycles-2014

Many manufacturers have been making a big push lately to introduce new models that won’t take a massive bite out of your wallet. Makes sense, really, as our sport is still trying to recover from the darkest days of the economic meltdown. Since disposable income isn’t what it used to be, we’ve come up with a list of the 10 least expensive street-legal motorcycles you can buy in 2014.

Not surprisingly, none of these bikes come from Europe, nor do any have engines with more than two cylinders. As you’d expect, the reason why some of these bikes are so cheap is because many of them come from less-industrialized nations. That said, there are still a few bikes here from reputable companies we’d recommend if extremely cheap transportation is what you’re looking for. And if the ultra-cheap options here appeal to you, make sure they are EPA-legal in your state. 

Our list starts with the most expensive first, working our way to cheapest at numero uno. So what will four grand and some change get you? Read on to find out.

    I’m in Mexico part-time with low-bandwidth and it’s a very slow and painful process to load each page of this article though I would very much like to see its content. If possible could you provide a 1 pager for the entire thing? That way I can read and recommend to my readers. Thanks, Carla

    Regarding the Qlink XF200 I would like to turn public to Motorcycle Forum readers my own experience for the past six years with this bike (a.k.a. in Brazil as Sundown STX Motard): http://www.caldas.com.br/30anos/motard_engl.htm . My usage of this bike is detailed in every aspect along 13 pages in my website. I have been travelling extensively with my bike all over Brazil. It is a pleasure to share my experience with fellow riders.
