Beginner's Guide to Motorcycle Types

For beginners, finding the right motorcycle to fit their needs can be a daunting task. The selection is vast, and the expense is not insignificant. Various types of motorcycles have equally varied strengths. They also have their own set of weaknesses. Just as you wouldn’t use a sledgehammer to polish your best dress shoes, you wouldn’t want to choose a track bike if the type of riding you wanted to do was all off-road. Regardless of if you are looking for a beginner motorcycle, or are merely seeking to take a dip into another riding style that you might not be as experienced in, this video is all about providing some insight into the types of motorcycles available, and how they can improve your desired riding experience.

      Might be a bit heavy. Most supermotos are made out of dirt bikes.

      @Steve Loeschke The bike won't be the issue. It's the young guy riding it. I learned on a 185 dirt bike, then a 400. At the time I tested my friends 750. Looking back, I am glad I stuck with a lower powered 400, which nowadays is probably as powerful as a good 250. Three rules. Never drink and ride. Don't show off. Don't ride beyond your comfort zone, ie don't follow a pack of fast riders. Other than that, take your first two years very easy. For mountain riding a lighter bike in the 300 range is good bet. I keep hearing good things about the 321, I think the R3?

      Great video guys. I'm only 5' 10" tall and just bought a BMW f850 gs. I am still getting used to the height. If I put it on the center stand in my garage it's like sitting on a horse. But driving it on the expressway is really nice. I have dumped it once already with only the right mirror getting scuffed. Gotta keep practicing. At 71, I'm running out of time!

      first bike I wanted was a 125cc Honda grom, I was looking for something quite, pull a low frame one wheel trailer? they have a handlebar extension kit that keeps you up right. I've seen electric conversion but saving the wallet & focus on good gas milage/convience as a commuter & cargo hualer motorcycle. I don't know any other options that have that nice look & fav color. Scooter maybe.

      Those aren't called cruisers dude, they're called choppers and they're very uncomfortable. The back is the first thing to go riding those things.


      Cruisers are a different category which you didn't even show. They're a mix of sportbikes and naked bikes. They're basically larger, naked street bikes with large fairings and windshiels. They're comfortable but not very sporty.Still, a lot more sporty than choppers.


      Sportbikes make my shoulders and wrists hurt. Riding them on the track is actually less tiring than riding on the street, daily.


       Naked bikes are a bit less comfortable than cruises but a bit more sporty as well. Still, a LOT more comfortable than sportbikes or choppers. The back is at optimal position, wrists and shoulders don't get much pressure either.


       I hate adventure bikes because they're so tall and soft. Some times it feels i'm riding a truck or something, BUT one with a good riding position is probably the most comfortable type of motorcycle. You simply float. Being able to ride offroad is a plus, for anybody who gives a fuck anyway.


      Another category you didn't show is the adventure/sports. It's basically a tall comfortable adventure bike but with heavy orientation towards street riding. Tighter suspension,street wheels/tires.

      So I’ve never driven a motorcycle I’ll start with that. I’ve always wanted one, I’ve watched plenty videos and a couple friends have one. The thing is I’m close to getting one but just not sure what to get if anyone can give any feedback would be great I’m 5’7” and weight around 175lb. I’m not sure if this matters lol but I’m a quick learner and I’ve only driven cars, manuals, automatics, obviously a normal bike as well the no motor kind lol. I’m really into Yamaha raven editions. Looking forward to any feedback👍🏼.

      RevZilla thanks for the feedback really appreciate it, so yeah r1 is way out the question, even though the price for a used 2008 models are so good. And yeah most likely won’t be getting an r6 either even though there my favorite bikes. It’s true I’d learn faster on smaller bikes. You think a Honda cbr600rr would be to much as well? Just asking because I know people say it’s a really good bike and isn’t as powerful as the r6?

    • RevZilla
      RevZilla In reply to Danny Hernandez

      Don't start on an R6 or R1. Just get a small used bike in the 250cc-400cc range, ride it for a year or two until you are absolutely reaching the limits of the bike. It's soooooo much easier and faster to learn good techniques on a smaller bike. Yamaha R3, Kawasaki Ninja 300, Ninja 400. -DrewZilla
