The ultimate guide to a riders first bike. I would like to say if you have made it here while doing research on your first motorcycle congratulations, you are taking the right steps to find something you like. Secondly that probably means you shouldn’t start out on an 1000 cc bike. When you are first learning about bikes you may just hear about the 300 cc bikes and 600 cc bikes, what you don’t hear about it all the in between bikes and the differences between them. Let me break it down to what I see as the best bikes when just starting out.
How to find the motorcycle that fits you
With so many different types of motorcycles in today’s entry-level class, it can be tricky even knowing where to begin your search, however, there are a few crucial tools to help you narrow down your search. The first [...]
When you think of a fast sports bike most people stop at the 1,000 cc range, but there are faster bikes and today we talk about two of the bikes who have been competing for that top spot. The Hayabusa and the zx14r.
1340cc in line four engine that produces 195 hp
155 nm of torque
0-60 in 2.6 seconds
586 pounds wet
1441cc in line four engine that produces 207hp
158nm of torque
0-60 in 2.6 seconds
589 pounds wet
Going by specs alone the kawasaki zx14r topples the Hayabusa by having more ccs, an extra 12 horsepower, and 3 pounds of torque to have the more powerful bike.The stock exhaust on the Hayabusa is a mid range rumble upon starting the bike and once it gets up to the higher rpm it gives that whine that you know and love [...]
The Kawasaki KLX250, Yamaha XT250, WR250R, and the Honda CRF250L represent a broad range of designs and capabilities. We’ve gathered several dual sport bikes to explore their differences.
The XT250 has a relatively low seat height and more than enough ground clearance for a slightly shorter dual-sport bike. Most off road bikes are usually pretty tall but the XT250 has a seat height that’s lower than 32 inches, still it’s able to clear obstacles more than adequately. The handling on the XT250 is quite nice at low speeds, and it’s turning angle is close to that of a trials bike at 50 degrees, the wheelbase is short so it’s a pretty tight turning vehicle which makes for great maneuverability and sits a very light 291 lbs.
Yamaha XT250 Specs:Engine type: Single-cylinder Displacement: 249cc Bore x stroke: 74 x 58mm Fueling: [...]

When buying a motorcycle it is very important to consider the actual cost of ownership in the long run. We have to think about how much the vehicle costs in maintenance, parts, any and all upkeep really. This is definitely where a Japanese motorcycles excel compared to owning motorcycles from European or American manufacturers. But how is it that Japanese motorcycles came to be so much cheaper and reliable compared to other makers?
After a little research we’ve found that after the second World War, motorcycles became a huge obsession with people around the globe and it wasn’t until the 1960’s that motorcycles really made their entry into the American Market. Around that time there were only a few British and Spanish brands along with Harley in the American market. Due to [...]
600cc super sport bikes were once developed on par with their bigger counterparts. There’s a reason for this – supersports are sexy, high-performance machines with aggressive race styling that turns heads, and it’s certainly no mystery as to why so many riders a decade ago were clamoring to have one. With excellent machines like the Honda CBR600RR, Yamaha R6, and the Suzuki GSXR 600, combined with approachable price tags and all-too-easy financing, the supersport market was one of the hottest in the industry. They were the most popular class and outsold the bigger bikes. Lately, the class has been in decline but why?
It had to end… Suddenly, the 600s were gone. Much of this was due to so many riders moving on to sport-touring and dual-sport motorcycles. The sportbikes, whether 600cc, 750cc or 1000cc were suddenly spurned as riders started seeking out something more practical to fit a whole variety of uses and roads.
When riding a sport bike, the goal is usually to get from point a to point B as FAST as possible! This is accomplished by making the bikes as light as possible, minimizing the weight while also maximizing the power, giving the rider a low aggressive riding position, creating an aerodynamic profile, and using the best state of the art technologies and the best lean angles possible for cornering as low as possible.
