Selecting the right motorcycle

In the past you have had dreams of riding on a motorcycle, cruising along the open highway. Dreams of driving past lush landscapes and breathtaking views have you convinced a new motorcycle is right for you. Well, now that you have finally made the decision it is important to select the right bike for you. Here are some tips to help you get started in finding the best motorcycle for your cruising needs.

According to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, there are three different types of motorcycles. They are street bikes, dual-purpose bikes and off-road bikes. But these are not the only types of motorcycles available. Let’s take a look at all of your options.

  • Street: Designed for paved roads and offer a variety of body styles
  • Touring: Designed with practical accessories and equipped with bigger gas tanks
  • Cruiser: Associated with custom designed bikes and high-profile brands
  • Sport: Capable of reaching high speeds and rank high in ease of handling and breaking
  • Standard: Generally equipped with just the basics and perfect for the novice rider
  • Scooters: Equipped with smaller engines and not recommended for highway use
  • Dual-purpose: Can be used both on and off road
  • Off-road: For those who are more adventurous and cannot be used on traditional roadways

When selecting your new motorcycle, take some time learning about your different options and seeing what is available. Knowing what purpose you want the bike to serve will give you a better understanding of the type of motorcycle is best for you.
