Posted by on October 14, 2020 in Stuff with 0 Comments

When you reach 16 years and 9 months old you can apply for your learner motorcycle license. Of course, it is possible to complete an introductory course before this. Once you start learning you’ll quickly discover a passion for riding and get your full license.

Then, you’ll be ready to purchase a motorcycle of your own, which will enable you to get to and from college, as well as seeing friends in the evenings. It’s an exciting time.

But, regardless of whether you’re aiming for KTM motorcycles or a Harley Davidson, you’ll need to find a good dealer first.

There are several things to consider when purchasing your motorcycle.

The strength of the bike is important, you want it to last for years and be capable of taking a few knocks, it’s quite possible you’ll bang it and drop it, but hopefully not crash it.

You also need to consider the insurance cost, the bigger the engine the more it will cost to insure. The style of the bike also matters, as does the amount of gear you’ll need to invest n. The right safety gear can save your life.

With this all in mind here are the 5 best motorcycles for college students:

1. Honda Rebel 300

The Rebel is a lightweight cruiser style motorcycle. It’s easy to ride, comfortable, and very forgiving. The riding position also lowers the center of gravity, helping you to stay in control throughout the ride.

The 300cc engine is economic but powerful enough to handle commuting and some longer rides. In short, a great way to build experience for the future.

2. KTM 390 Duke

The KTM Duke is a single-cylinder cross between trails bike and city commute. It’s got plenty of power and is a lot of fun to ride. In fact, it’s a very popular first-time motorcycle.

It’s also surprisingly stable and light enough to be easy to maneuver through traffic.

3. Yamaha XT250

If you prefer the look of an off-roader then you may want to try the Yamaha. It’s another bike that’s great on-road and off-road.

This is potentially more fun than the Duke and could easily lead to you creating much longer routes than you need to.

4. Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350X

This is another bike with plenty of power and a look that should go down well with most students. The black engine makes the bike look like it belongs to a rebel motorcycle gang.

In fact, this bike is surprisingly easy to ride and is much more affordable than you may think.

5. Bajaj Dominar 400

The lesser-known manufacturer allows you to purchase a larger engine. The 400 has plenty of power and the bike is a lot of fun. It’s guaranteed to leave you smiling every time you arrive at college!

Of course, your budget is a critical factor when purchasing a college motorcycle. But, all of the above pre-owned bikes should be affordable to the average student. They represent a great introduction to motorcycling, a passion that is likely to last you for years.
