Choosing a new motorcycle is a big decision, especially if you’re new to riding. Price, style, and performance all come into account. But there are considerations you should have in mind that might not be obvious too. Have you thought about how ride position might affect your ability to log enough comfortable hours in the saddle to become proficient? What about versatility? Do you know for sure you don’t want to hit up a light trail now and then? How about potential maintenance costs? Or maybe you want a bike you can learn to wrench on yourself?

We could go on and on. Instead, we’ve selected 13 streetbikes with broad beginner appeal in a variety of styles to help get you started. That means lower price points, manageable performance specs, and fairly neutral ergonomics all around. Since the market is currently flush with entry-level machines, some of these bikes represent an entire class of motorcycles to consider. Others are calibrated to more specific ride styles and tastes. Either way, there’s something for everyone new to two-wheels below. Check out our Motorcycle Riding Tips for added insight.

BMW style at an entry-level price—the G 310 GS. (BMW Motorrad/)
BMW G 310 GS
The BMW G 310 GS takes after the massively popular GS line of adventure bikes in BMW’s stable, but tones the package down in this fantastic entry-point machine. It’s a head-turning of a motorcycle in its own right, carrying a 313cc single and weighing in at a respectable 386 pounds. Seat height is an approachable 32.8 inches with a low 32.3 seat height available. It features BMW Motorrad ABS, ride-by-wire, adjustable levers, and a luggage carrier also. The seating position is nice and neutral and our testers in the past have described it as “perfect” for new riders.
The Honda CB500X is comfortable and capable and just enough fun to want to ride all the time. (Honda/)
The CB500X utilizes the same 491cc twin engine as you’ll find in the Rebel 500, but the adventure package is extraordinarily friendly to new riders. The cockpit is plush and all-day comfortable, the power output mellow and progressive, while the transmission is smooth as butter. Braking is reliable, there’s wind protection, the opportunity to upgrade to make it better suited for longer-range rides, and a 32.8-inch seat height that fits a broad variety of riders. It’s just fun enough to want to ride as often as possible without being too much bike for a rider still learning the ropes.
Honda’s Rebel 500 has a cool cruiser look and a versatile-enough power platform to handle any in-town duty. (Honda/)
Honda Rebel 500
The Honda Rebel 500 is a phenomenal starter machine if you’re looking for a ride with cruiser styling. The Rebel 500 provides better engine output than the prior two machines, but is still gentle enough to be forgiving to a new rider. It’s cockpit is narrow and the 27.2-inch seat low enough to the ground to accommodate riders with short inseams. The transmission is super smooth and recent suspension upgrades make the bike even more plush-feeling on the road. This platform is ripe for easy customization too. The ABS-equipped version prices at $6,699, but it’s also likely to be a bike you’ll enjoy even after you’ve gotten comfortable with the basics of riding, so it’ll be money well spent.
The Honda Rebel 300 is easygoing and totally approachable for new riders. (Honda/)
Honda Rebel 300
You could also opt for the $4,999 Honda Rebel 300 ABS, which is a bit lighter and more docile

BEYOND THE STRIP: Discover the Cultural Gems of Las Vegas
Written by Barbara Toombs
Fremont Street in the heart of downtown Las Vegas.
Millions of visitors are understandably attracted to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas’ renowned Strip each year, where world-class resorts, casinos, shows and incredible dining options are the name of the game.
What many don’t realize is that there’s another fascinating side to the Entertainment Capital of the World, headlined by two cultural districts known simply as Downtown and Chinatown.
Downtown Las Vegas (also known as DTLV) is really where this unique desert city got its start. In 1931, construction began on what is now known as the Hoover Dam, attracting thousands of workers to a site just east of the city. To capitalize on this growing workforce, savvy businessmen began building casinos and showgirl venues along Las Vegas’ only paved road at the time: Fremont Street.
Today, DTLV is comprised of three distinct districts. Many visitors to the city are already familiar with one of them: the Fremont Street Casino District, which contains museums, restaurants and bars, as well as the original Las Vegas casinos, including El Cortez, Golden Nugget and Golden Gate. Here you’ll also find the renowned Fremont Street Experience, which debuted in 1995. This pedestrian-only thoroughfare is covered by a canopy of more than two million LED lights and a state-of-the-art sound system that comes to life every night for a spectacular sound and light show called “Viva Vision.”
The Arts District
A popular attraction in this district is The Mob Museum (the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement), which showcases intriguing tales and the age-old dichotomy of good guys versus bad guys. Explore at your own pace, go on a guided tour or uncover museum surprises as part of a group scavenger hunt. Want a literal “taste” of old-school Las Vegas? Plan to dine at Top of Binion’s Steakhouse, perched on the 24th floor of Binion’s Gambling Hall. The restaurant dates back to 1965 when it was known as Top of the Mint, the signature dining spot at The Mint hotel tower. The interior design (and menu – think steak, prime rib, lobster and even Baked Alaska) is a throwback to an earlier era when the mob ran much of Las Vegas, but the real draw is the spectacular view through dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows.
Built in 2002, the Fremont East Entertainment District (FEED) is a six-block area that stretches from Las Vegas Boulevard East to 8th Street and from Ogden Street South to Carson. FEED is pedestrian-friendly, offering diverse street life and many eateries, cafes, bars and lounges, as well as ample shopping opportunities and lively entertainment. A must-see attraction in this district is the Downtown Container Park – a dining, shopping and live music venue made of 45 colorful repurposed shipping containers, all fronted by a two-story, fire-breathing praying mantis who made its original debut at Burning Man. Nearby is the popular Bin 702 – one of many great dining choices in the area – featuring a great selection of beer and wine, as well as a tantalizing choice of charcuterie and cheese, sandwiches and small plates for sharing.
18b sign in The Arts District.
In recent years, The Arts District – or the 18b as it’s also known (a reference to it occupying 18 blocks of Downtown Las Vegas, loosely outlined by Commerce Street, Colorado Ave, Fourth Street and Hoover Avenue) – has been growing in popularity. Its monthly “First Friday” block party and art walk features food trucks and live music, serving as a backdrop for artists showing their works off at a variety of open-air and indoor galleries. These include The Arts Factory, home to over 30 artists and art galleries, and ArtSquare, a hip establishment that houses design stores, designer’s studios, wellness spots, and food and drink outlets. Behind The Arts Factory sits one of many great dining choices in The Arts District: Taverna Costera, serving up delicious Coastal Mediterranean fusion that draws inspiration from coastal Spanish, French, Italian and Greek cuisines and beyond.
Just a couple of miles east of the Strip, along Spring Mountain Road (roughly between Rainbow Boulevard and Interstate 15), lies the city’s amazing Chinatown, which has grown in leaps and bounds over the past two decades. Here you’ll find the largest collection of Asian businesses in Southern Nevada, including a multitude of authentic Asian restaurants, gift shops, a hair stylist, a reflexologist, home decor, an Asian supermarket and the only Chinese bookstore in Nevada.
At Chinatown’s heart is the enormous and ornate Chinatown Plaza, featuring a colorful, dragon-adorned, Tang Dynasty-inspired gate and gleaming
