What is the right size for a beginner’s motorcycle?
You want to start riding a motorcycle, but you’re not sure where to begin. What bike should you get? This is brand new for you, and you know there’s going to be a learning curve.
It’s good that you’re thinking over your options. Generally speaking, the safest option is to pick a small bike. The engine size should be either 250cc or 300cc.
The advantage of a small bike is that you can get used to riding safely without having to worry about a more powerful vehicle that makes you more likely to get into an accident. You can practice, work on your skills, take the proper classes and get comfortable on the bike.
Some people don’t want to buy a 250cc, even at the beginning, because they feel like they’ll just have to upgrade quickly into a larger, more powerful bike. Shouldn’t they save themselves the trouble and just start there?
You can, but it is more of a risk. It is more dangerous. It is safer to start with a smaller bike until you’re comfortable. Remember, new people are getting into the sport all of the time, so it’s easy to sell a relatively new 250cc bike for almost the same amount you initially paid. You’re not out a lot when it’s time for that upgrade. Some people even do this after just a few months of practice.
While choosing the right motorcycle does help you stay safe, it’s no guarantee that a driver won’t hit you and cause serious injuries. Make sure you know how to seek financial compensation if needed.
