Motorcycle Buying Guide: What to Know before Buying your First Bike
In today's modern metropolises, most of which were built around the idea of &#8203;&#8203;getting around by car, the slowest, most expensive, and most inefficient way to get around is now, well, the car. That is why many people are rediscovering the motorcycle, one of the most efficient (and fun!) Forms of motorized transport in the world. While motorcycles used to be the domain of motorcyclists and enthusiasts, advances in technology and increased traffic are making them a much more attractive option for more and more people. And when the commute is over and the weekend rolls around, you won't be able to have much more fun than going on an open road adventure, or hitting that fun downtown spot, in your two-wheeler pride and joy. But you need a bike that fits what you need or want to ride, and you need the right equipment and training to stay safe.

We divide the motorcycle genre into eight general categories (most also have several sub-niches), to help you figure out which one is best for you. Then learn about cycling training and how to get the right gear. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments and we'll get back to you.

Cruise

Cruising is perhaps the most romantic of the motorcycle types on this list. It's cool, it looks beautiful, it sounds strong, and it's a favourite of both real biker types and millions of other riders. And a cruiser could be a good first bike for a beginner. Why? Two reasons: You sit low and you're in control, and it's easy to ride, with a smooth delivery of power and more of a penchant for, well, cruising, than speeding shenanigans.

That's not to say that cruise ships can't go fast. A subset of the cruiser bike type is the "power cruiser" and it's just what you think it is: faster than the typical cruiser. Because cruisers are so popular, there are literally dozens of new models to choose from, in all size categories, from 250cc urban machines to 2000cc land hammers. ("Cc" refers to the cubic centimeter, which is how most 300cc motorcycle engines are measured). The used cruise vehicle market is also huge.

Your best bet as a beginner is probably something at 125cc motor cycles or less as it's drivable in the city while still giving you open road capability.

Sport

At the other end of the cruise spectrum are sport bikes. These bikes are built for speed and they're not shy about it, with high-end machines putting out 200 horsepower and 200 mph. Most can easily outperform even the most exotic of supercars. A lot of fun, but obviously sport bikes are probably not the best option for a beginner.

Fortunately, if you really feel the need for speed, there are options for beginner riders. Bicycle manufacturers have recently been making more sports bikes in the 300cc to 500cc range, and they retain the carefree good looks of their bolder brethren, as well as some of the technology, such as ABS brakes, fuel injection, modes. driving and more. But its power is more manageable and less likely to blast it into hyperspace like top-tier track-centric machines. If you level up a 600cc machine, be aware that even though it still has a "small" engine, it can be tremendously powerful.

If you decide that a sports bike will be your first bike, make sure you get some training and the right riding gear. Then, to really get a grip on your machine's performance capabilities, sign up for a few days on the track and get pro-level driving instructions - and some incredible high-speed driving thrills. You wonder why you didn't start riding years ago.

Standard

There was a time when most motorcycles were just doing it all "motorcycles" and not super specialized machines that force us to write lengthy buying guides, because most bikes now have a more specific focus.
Today, we call a "normal" motorcycle a "standard", and for many new riders, the flexibility of a standard motorcycle is much more accessible. You can load it up with saddlebags, a windshield, backrest, your partner, and hit the road. Or, take all of those things off and just wander around town, to work, or wherever.

Standards come in sizes ranging from 250cc to about 1200cc, so you have to take a look at many bikes to see what feels good and if it fits your budget. As a bonus, many standard bikes made today come with a surprising amount of technology, from ABS brakes to phone charging cubicles and even automatic transmissions. A good standard size for a beginner is 500cc to 700cc, depending on your physical size. But the size of the engine is big enough for you and a passenger to cross the city or even the country.

Dual sport / ADV

What do you get when you cross a dirt bike with a street bike? A bicycle that can be ridden on or off the curb and legally. Where riders used to add DIY light kits to dirt bikes and then get their license from the DMV (the first true "dual sport"), today almost all bike manufacturers make specifically designed dual sport models. Dual sport bikes are also often referred to as "adventure bikes" or "ADV bikes".

The ADV / Adventure Bike / Dual-Sport is the Swiss Army Knife of motorcycles, making it a good first bike. They're tough, simple, generally lightweight, sturdy, good on fuel, and fun to ride. Did we mention hard? The good news is that off-road riding can beat a bike, but the dual sport bikes being made today can handle it.

They range in size from 250cc machines that can split city traffic or off-road trails like butter, to 1200cc intercontinental transporters that allow you to carry everything you need to survive crossing the Atacama.

What you'll need is probably something in between, and a 650cc dual sports car is probably the most popular size, combining a lighter engine in a slim frame, but with enough power to roll you and your team to the ends of the earth. . Note that most dual sports are tall so you need a bit of crotch to touch your feet, but even if it's short, talk to a dealer or bike shop about installing "drop links" that They can lower the height of the seat so that you can stay safe. So get lost!

Touring

Do you want a bike but still want the comforts of a car? You need to check out touring bikes, often called "locker rooms" because they are "disguised" with so many options such as stereos, GPS, heated seats, windshields, plenty of cargo capacity, automatic transmissions, and more.

Unless riding long distances is really what you have at your heart, you may want to consider another bike as a first bike as touring bikes are usually quite large, heavy, powerful, and complicated. As an option, you may also want to search a subset known as a "bagger." This type of bike reduces weight and features (and price), but is still a great, powerful machine. But it might be a better idea to find a well-used standard style bike, add some lightweight saddlebags, a bug screen (aka small windshield), and then see if the open road is where you really want to be. Once you've got a few miles under your belt and you're ready, you can properly level up to a "full boat" mileage machine with more confidence.

Be smart: prepare yourself

There is an old saying in motorcycling: the whole team, all the time (aka "AT-GATT"). Driving a motorcycle is obviously very different from driving a car. You must equip yourself, which at the very least means a full face helmet, a custom made motorcycle jacket with pads, gloves, boots and protective pants. That sounds like a lot of equipment, but it is necessary to avoid most injuries in a crash, something that beginning motorcyclists tend to do with predictable regularity as they learn to master their new machines.

Modern motorcycle gear is effective, comfortable, and looks as rough or as straightforward as you like. Trust us, the road rash, which occurs when your bare skin is scraped off as you glide down the pavement, really hurts and leaves unattractive scars. "If only I had used my equipment," many cyclists have said from a hospital bed. Had they used their gear, they probably could have come out of the mishap with a few bumps and bruises and walked away, only having to shell out a few hundred dollars for new gear rather than a small (or very large) fortune for hospital bills. . .

And while an open helmet can be tempting, we always recommend a full coverage cap to protect your precious head and that winning smile. It also keeps bugs, rain, and road debris out of your face. So get ready and have fun doing it; Modern motorcycle gear looks great and tells everyone that you're smart about riding safely, and it works.
