What Motorcycle Engine Displacement to Choose by a beginner
There are lots of different things to consider before you purchase your first motorcycle from its look to performance. One of the most important matters to have a look at when you read specifications is engine size. In order to choose the best motorcycle, you need to understand what cc is and how your bike performance depends on this parameter. The figures may be unclear for you for in the beginning, but you will understand everything over time. I started my riding experience with a 250 cc bike and now I have a really powerful beast. You may also purchase a more aggressive machine later if you manage to master your skills.

What Is CC?
What Motorcycle Engine Displacement to Choose by a beginner
It is important to understand what СС is before you start choosing your first motorcycle. It means cubic centimeters, which means the engine size of a bike. In simple words, the larger the engine, the more CCs it has. So, a bike with a 600 cc engine is more powerful than a 300 motorcycle. It is also important to check engine configuration because it also determines the power of the machine. It shows how the elements of the engine fit together. The two most popular configurations that you can find in the bike are straight-four engine and twins engines. Usually, the recommended engine size for a learner is under 500 cc, but there are motorcycles with larger engine displacement also suitable for beginners.

Motorcycles for a Learner

I have chosen a few bike models with different cc for you as a starter to check out.

The small frame of this machine is great for a beginner or a smaller rider. The seat is high enough to enjoy control and it also allows you to sit upright, which is a convenient riding position for long-distance commutes.
• Engine: 250 cc;
• Transmission: six-speed;
• Seat height: 35.2 inches;
• Fuel capacity: 2.7 gallons;
• Curb weight: 346 pounds.
The price for this beginner bike is $5,899, which is affordable for most budgets. Anyway, a used motorcycle is also an option that you can have.

This is another lightweight motorcycle that you will find very easy to ride.

YZF-R3 is one of the best choices for a beginner. The 321 cc bike is lightweight and you will find it very easy to handle. If you prefer a sports-style position, you will love its seat. During stops, your feet will be fully on the ground which increases control over this beginner bike.
Specifications:
• Seat height: 780 mm (31 inches);
• Engine of the bike: 321 cc 4-stroke;
• Wet weight: 167 kg (368 lb.);
• Top speed: 180 km/h (110 mph);

The price for the 2019 Yamaha YZF-R3 is $4,999, but you can also purchase a used bike if you wish to save some money.

There are also other models that you can find on the Internet, but those provided above I have tested myself and found them a great option for learners. Before you actually buy something, you should test the machine yourself to make sure that it is comfortable for you.
