Different Motorcycles For Different Customers


There are different motorcycle models that match the needs and preferences of different customers. This can vary from the beginner, retiree, serious speedster to the daily commuter. Before buying one, you need to establish what kind of riding you will be doing and what your budget is.

Many riders are dedicated to classic names and types of motorcycles. These larger, road motorcycles are bought used, restored and often customized by the owner for weekend and trip riding in warmer weather. People who do this are usually well suited financially to purchase a larger motorcycle, more experienced and know what kind of bike they are looking for.

For the beginning rider, a smaller engine is the best one to choose. Starting with a 250 cc, or cubic centimeter engine, is the best type to learn on. These can be found generally on motorcycles known as “crotch rockets,” and can be bought fairly reasonably. For those on a tight budget, purchasing a used bike is not hard and many can be found online or in your local classifieds. These bikes are easier to handle, are cheap on gas and are well designed. They are also a great match for the commuter who wants to save money on fuel.

The same bike that goes to 500 cc or above are meant for more experienced riders and cost slightly more to insure. These are made for maneuverability and speed and are made to lean over on. These are often the choice for younger riders.

For the road warrior who likes to take long trips, a touring motorcycle is the one to purchase. These are built for comfort, have more power and extra features to make the ride enjoyable. Couples often purchase these bikes for summer and warm weather traveling. They have more storage room and are easier for two to ride on. A used model with low mileage can be purchased within means, and will last for years if well maintained.

Whatever type that you choose, make sure that you establish what your riding habits will be. Starting out with a smaller engine size at first is smart until you learn how to control and maneuver the bike. Those who want to ride in an upright position are more likely to enjoy a classical type motorcycle versus the crotch rocket style that requires to ride lower to the bike. The important thing is that you purchase the bike that matches your budget and your riding preferences.
