We know it can be a big leap from your current transportation—whatever it is—to the motorized two-wheeled world. But technology has come a long way, and there are plenty of bikes out there for every skill level. Buy the right one, and you might become a member of a wonderful world of fun and function for years to come.
List 10 of the Best Motorcycles to Buy as Your First Bike :
10. Yamaha FZ-07
Engine: 4-stroke, liquid-cooled DOHC, 8-valve, parallel twin
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
Engine: 4-stroke, air/oil cooled, DOHC, 8-valve, V-twin
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.
