About Our Selections

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 great starter bikes for any beginner rider.

Honestly, as a beginner rider, the options available are better than ever and we have 6 different motorcycles available in 2023, that do not require any manual shifting at all. We have mixed it up between gasoline-powered and pure electric, but from this list exists the right bike for the next new rider excited to experience the joys of life on a motorcycle.

Honda Rebel 1100 DCT

One of the best introductory sport cruiser model lines, now with an automatic transmission!

Honda NC750X DCT

An ADV bike for taller and heavier riders wanting a DCT without going all the way to an Africa Twin

Zero DS

Labelled as a dual-sport, is more of an electric supermoto than anything else


Very funky styling for one of the first electric maxi-scooters out there

Yamaha Zuma 125

A zippy little scooter with a peppy single cylinder engine that definitely "zums" around!

A mini-moto that is brilliantly fun to ride around the city
