What Motorcycle Will I Be Riding in 5 Years?

Yamaha MT-01

This question jumped into my mind at 5 AM. So much for getting any sleep tonight. Think about your motorcycle. Now think about your dream motorcycle. Now look back at your motorcycle. It's not your dream bike, is it? Maybe you don't even have a dream motorcycle. Maybe you have a list of a few you'd really. I know I do.

I've been riding for 6 years now. In that short time I've owned 11 motorcycles or scooters. I've owned everything from a stable of midsize cruises, to a heavily modified 1990 Honda Hawk GT650 N, to a couple two-stroke scooters.

The latter is a great alternative for anyone wise enough to avoid to avoid a 600cc supersport as a first bike, but still wanting a motorcycle zippy looks and performance. Likewise, for those who value their power and fear they'll outgrow a Ninja 250 quickly, the Kawasaki Ninja 400R might be right for you.

Kawasaki Ninja 250R Review

kawasaki ninja 250

You’ll need to go back over a quarter century to the last era of motorcycling when small, beginner friendly motorcycles were this popular.Kawasaki’s Ninja 250 is the right bike at the right time. The Ninja’s 2008 restyling has made it a good looking to boot, with power to go beyond A to B.

Best 250cc Beginner Motorcycle: Honda CBR-250R vs. Kawasaki Ninja 250R vs. Hyosung GT-250

The 250cc motorcycle market has finally opened up in the Western hemisphere. In North America, where the Ninja seemed to sit at the top of the 250cc sportbike throne all alone, it now faces challenges from both Hyosung, as well as from Honda's new CBR-250R.
