We have decided to leave out the cruisers from this battle for the new Bees. As a new biker chances are as you learn how to ride and spend more time around bikers and bikes your perception and taste would continue to evolve.
Below are 5 bikes in the beginner category new bees should consider …We have considered cost, comfort/riding position, weight and handling.
So, you want a sport bike but you don’t want to break the bank or your neck? The Yamaha FZ6R is the one of the safest bet for future track riders, offering smooth power, an accommodating seat height and enough low-end torque to zip through the canyons. The FZ6R’s full fairing and low handlebars round out its sporty aesthetics, while the fuel-injected 600cc inline-four engine cranks out 66.5 horsepower.
Dual-disc brakes in the front attribute to the FZ6R’s impressive stopping power, and the bike is available in three different color variations. Keep walking past that expensive and intimidating R1 and swing a leg over the Yamaha FZ6R as your starter bike.
KTM 390 Duke and 200 Duke
Most new bees want bikes with cute aesthetics and there is no other hotter than the KTM new models. With their sleek shape, eye catching colour scheme mixed with its smooth handling its not surprise they are excellent first bikes for new bees. Unfortunately there isn’t a lot of this hot baby on the market for sell so getting your hands on them can be a challenge
Both the 200 and 390 are single-cylinder 4-strokes. Highlights include "upside down forks" and large Brembo brakes. Both bikes offer a smaller displacement, but are still solid and aggressive looking.
Kawasaki Ninja 650

The bigger engine model of the Kawasaki Ninja 250. It definitely has a lot more power than it’s younger and lighter cousin. It’s a great sports bike that is quite common and will be easy to find.
Kawasaki Ninja 300 & Honda CBR 250
