Hi,

I just gotten my motorcycle license. In driving school i was driving Suzuki SV650 bike and it was ok. The power of 650 bike is ok to me.

Now it's time to get my first bike. I searched for a few bikes i like and i would like to get some opinions on which is gonna be the best "beginner" bike for me. (I like lighter bikes, i dont mind if it has a little bit more power i dont have the urge to push the gas, i really love digital displays and the most important thing: i would like to buy a motorcycle for a long time)

My options:
  • KTM Duke 790
  • Yamaha MT 07
  • Kawasaki Z650
  • Ducati monster 797
  • BMW F900R (maybe mz favourite, i really like the quality, the looks, the display, but i am worried its too much power for a begginer?)
Less powerful bikes:
KTM Duke 390
Yamaha MT 03

With my family we will go on longer trips and i dont think 1 cylinder engine is the way to go...

Thanks for the answers and sorry for my "not perfect" english.
Cheers from Slovenia.

Do you have other riding experience, such as dirt biking? If not, then all the bikes on your first list are too much bike for a beginner, IMO. The KTM 390 Duke has had problems. Of all these, I would suggest the Yamaha MT 03. And I would buy used because you will drop it a time or two in your first year. We all did. It's your first bike, not your dream bike.
