Standard Motorcycles

Standard motorcycles include the Ducati Monster 696, Kawasaki Z1000, Aprilia Shiver 750, Honda CB1000R, and Triumph Street Triple R.

While sportbikes and cruisers get the lion’s share of the attention, standard motorcycles might just be the best mix of both. Appealing to beginners and veteran riders alike, standard-type motorcycles have a riding position that falls between the forward-rotated position of a sportbike and the reclined arrangement of a cruiser, putting the rider in a very natural position not unlike a low dirtbike. Standards generally offer a good mix of comfort and visibility, which can make them an ideal choice for commuting and city riding. Standards often have little or no fairing and limited bodywork, and many are appropriately termed as Naked bikes. Naked standards have long been popular in Europe and in recent years more have been produced for the North American market.
