With gas prices still pretty high, more and more people are looking to not only Hybrid Cars, but to motorcycles also as a new means of transportation. Also, we all know that because of the recession people want an affordable form of transportation. So if they are making the decision to go out and buy a motorcycle, they want something that is the best value. With so many different options out there, how does someone know which motorcycle to buy? Here are the top motorcycles out there under $10,000. They are the Harley Sportster 1200, the Hyosung GT 250R, the Kawasaki Ninja 650R, the Hyosung GV 650, and the Triumph Street Triple, according to Motorcycle.com.
Harley Davidson is probably the most well known brand of motorcycle out there. If a standard bike is what you’re looking for then the Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 is the bike for you. This motorcycle is good for beginners and because it isn’t too big. The Sportster has a 24 month warranty on it, which is what anyone who is looking for a good value wants. The engine type is a V Twin, 2 cylinders, 4 stroke. It is air cooled, which means it is a lighter bike. The motorcycle has an electric starter and a manual transmission, according to Motorcycle.com. It has mid-mounted foot pegs, and passenger pegs for anyone that you would want to take for a ride. This motorcycle was rated #2 by users of Motorcycle.com for Standard Bikes, and #14 overall. This bike lists for $9,899 if you get it in Vivid Black. However, if you want it in any of their five other color options, that’s going to be extra, according to Harley Davidson. So if you are in the market for a standard motorcycle under $10,000, this is the one to get.
The Hyosung GT 250R is another one of the best motorcycles under $10,000. It is a sport bike, and was rated #3 on Motorcycle.com in sports bike, and #17 overall. The Hyosung GT 250R is a good bike to have. But what makes it even better is that it is only $3,999. You can’t get most used motorcycles for that price. Hyosung is a fairly new company making motorcycle on their own, but they have been making motorcycles for Suzuki for a very long time. The GT 250R has a V Twin engine, 2 cylinders, and is a 4-Stroke. It has an electric starter and is manual. This is a good bike if you want speed and quality, all at an affordable price.
The Kawasaki Ninja 650R was rated #6 in the Sports category by Motorcycle.com, and #20 overall. This bike has a Parallel Twin engine, 2 cylinders, and is a 4-Stroke. It also has a liquid cooling system. It is a manual transmission, and is only listed for $7,099. This bike is good for a beginner to learn on because of the structure of the bike. It has mounted handlebars and a low seat. This is something that any new motorcyclist would be proud to own.
The Hyosung GV 650 was rated #28 overall by Motorcycle.com, and as #4 in the Cruiser category. A cruiser is a type of bike that is good for distance riding and leisure riding. The style of the bike is where the rider seats back in the seat with high handlebars so it is good for “cruising” around town, according to Motorcycle.com. The motorcycle has a liquid cooled V Twin engine, and is a 4 cylinder, according to Hyosung Motors. The price for this bike starts at $6,799.
The last motorcycle that is a good value and coming in at only $8,899 is the Triumph Street Triple. The Street Triple was rated #42 overall and #4 of Standard bikes, according to Motorcycle.com. It has a Horizontal In-line engine, has 3 cylinders, and is a 4 stroke. It has a liquid cooling system and a manual transmission. This is a good bike to have if you’re commuting as Standards are bikes that riders can be seen on better because of the higher up riding seat, according to Motorcycle.com. This is a great value for the price.
