(Our Car Expert) – If you own a motorcycle, now would be the time to start preparing to ride. But what if you are a beginner pilot? What is an excellent bike to ride and how would you stay safe? While you wait for spring. Here are some great motorcycle options and safety gear considerations for 2023.
The 2023 Honda Rebel may be the best option for the new rider. It is priced under $5,000. There are also plenty of mid-level bike options that combine style performance with affordable prices.
A conversation about motorcycles can’t be done without Harley-Davidson, especially the Nightster. It’s a mid-level ride, nice and light. It’s high-performance, comfortable, and costs less than $14,000.
Making a step forward in all categories, the 2023 Indian challenger Darkhorse has enough stature and presence. Great for cruising around town and long road trips. This bike is not a beginner’s bike, but a worthy one to work towards. Priced under $29,000.
Adventurous drivers should look at the BMW R1250, especially the adventure rally edition. It starts at under $18,000, but if you upgrade, you can apply a hefty amount of features that let you go off-road.
Whether you’re looking to start with a beginner bike like the Honda Rebel or step right up to the Indian challenger Darkhorse, the one constant is safety. Alpinestars has one of the best products for riders, Tech-air. Think wearable airbags. It deploys eight times faster than the blink of an eye or 25 milliseconds and can protect up to 95 percent of your body.
