List 10 of the Best Motorcycles to Buy as Your First Bike : 

10. Yamaha FZ-07

Yamaha FZ-07

Yamaha

Displacement: 689cc
Engine: 4-stroke, liquid-cooled DOHC, 8-valve, parallel twin
Transmission: 6-speed

This inline twin cylinder has a unique linear torque curve, giving the rider a smooth feeling in throttle response. Equipped with dual front brakes and a compact wheelbase, this bike can handle a lot.

With a comfortable yet sporty riding position, the FZ-07 is a versatile bike for city use as well as longer trips. It is not an absolute beginner bike, but can be enjoyed by riders with a variety of experience. It will not be outgrown.

9. Hyosung GT250

Hyosung

Displacement: 249cc
Engine: 4-stroke, air/oil cooled, DOHC, 8-valve, V-twin
Transmission: 5-speed

Somehow we forgot about Hyosung last time, but we sure wish we hadn’t. The GT250 looks like a much larger displacement bike because of the larger frame. With dual front disc brakes, it is like a slower 600, which makes for an excellent teacher especially for larger beginner riders who are interested in sport bikes. It is a very light and nimble V-twin that should be more forgiving than its bigger brothers.
