Best Beginner Motorcycle 250cc vs 600cc
So there’s a lot of controversy about whats the best beginner / starter motorcycle, usually 250cc versus 600cc vs even a 1000cc. Also there’s controversy about whether a dual sport or street bike is the best beginner motorcycle. I’m here to tell you that I think the 08-12 Kawasaki Ninja 250R is the best beginner bike. A R6 or any 600 is going to have a ton of horse power that is hard to handle as a beginner. It doesn’t take much to pop a wheelie on a 600 and while your learning to ride on the street, you want to keep both wheels on the asphalt! As far as a dual sport vs street bike goes, that’s completely person opinion. You just have to figure out which type of motorcycle you like better.
The reason I say the ninja 250 is the best beginner motorcycle is because they are easy to ride and there’s a ton of them so their cheap (spend just over 00 on craigslist). Also you are going to drop your first bike, so don’t make your brand new Honda cbr 600 the bike that you drop! Get a cheap used ninja 250 on craigslist, then when you feel that you are ready, even if its just a month, get a 600! Also if you have previous dirt bike experience you will probably be able to handle a 600 but I still recommend to get a 250. Also try to avoid pre 2008 ninja 250s because the newer ninja 250s 2008 – 2012 are much safer and stabler. Even if people say there is no difference between the old vs the new ninja 250 don’t trust them. The newer ninja 250 is much easier to ride and a much much better beginner motorcycle. And it looks sick for a 250! 🙂
