5. Qlink Adventure 250/Tour 250: $3395


The Qlink Adventure and Tour 250 are far cries from American Iron, but they do represent cheap alternatives to your typical cruiser and bagger. Both are powered by a carbureted 248cc V-Twin, which itself is rather impressive for a bike this cheap. The cruiser-inspired Adventure evokes classic cruiser styling with a raked front end and classic lines. Its spoked wheels and chrome pipes complete the look. The Tour (shown above) takes the Adventure and adds a windscreen, different seat, and hard bags for long(er) distance travel. While we haven’t ridden it, it looks good for a sub-$3400 bike.
