About Our Selections

It needs to be stated that there are very few motorcycles that come with engines under 100cc that are not motocross, dirt, or trail bikes. For this list, we tried our best to stay within the realm of road-going motorcycles, with only one being a dual sport, as there are other lists on BestBeginnerMotorcycles regarding the best dirt and trail bikes for beginners, for kids, and for general use.

These selections considered ease of use, rideability, price, and how effective each motorcycle was in helping the beginner or newer rider learn the intricacies of riding. We are confident that any of these bikes will be superb starter or second bikes or scooters for the new riders to learn and enjoy on!
