Your first dirt machine will always be special for you. You will likely remember every single detail of your bike because as a learner you will spend lots of time on it. Although it is tempting to purchase a professional dirt model, as a beginner you should not do this. You will master your skills gradually so you do not need to pay much money to get a very powerful beast. So, when choosing a motocross machine, pick the one that matches your riding skill level and other parameters, such as your height. I can help you to find a good dirt beginner bike by giving a few recommendations on the models that you should consider.

How to Pick Your First Motocross Bike

Before you choose a bike for dummies, you need to decide what you need it for. There are two basic types to consider, including those designed for motocross racing and those tough enough for trail riding. The first one means that you will ride on the same path over and over again, which will allow you to learn it well, but trail riding means riding on a long distance leaving behind the road that you will see never again.

A dirt bike for adults usually comes with larger tires with more rubber and softer suspension, which makes riding more comfortable. A fuel tank has a bigger capacity and there may also be a reserve option. A tall dirt bike will come with enough ground clearance allowing you to ride safely even despite various obstacles, such as boulders. Also, some models allow starting using a button.
Usually, a motocross racing dirt machine is lighter because it does not have electric start and comes with a less fuel tank capacity, which allows doing different actions on the bike easier, such as jumping and turning.

Best Motocross Models for a Beginner

It took me some time to choose just a few models of dirt bikes because there are really many options available but I believe that you will be able to pick something from the beginner machines that you will find below.

Honda CRF250X
Best Motocross Motorcycles for Beginners
This is a prefer dirt bike for the tall learner looking for a reliable machine for trail riding. There is no need to kick your machine to start it because there is the electric button located on the handlebars that you just need to push to go on. The dirt model comes with good ground clearance, which allows riding it on any terrain. The tires are wide (21-inch and 18-inch), which ensure comfortable riding even for a beginner. The bike is equipped with a 250cc four-stroke engine, which is suitable for a learner to have control over the dirt machine.

Also, you can easily customize your machine later since finding proper parts will not be difficult. The dirt machine is about 254 pounds and it comes with a low center of gravity, so you as a beginner will find it easy to manipulate this bike.

• Engine of this dirt bike: 249.00 cc;
• Gearbox: five-speed;
• Ground clearance: 345 mm (13.6 in.);

Honda CRF230F
Best Motocross Motorcycles for Beginners
This is another reliable Honda dirt bike for motocross. I used to ride it pretty often until bought a more powerful machine. However, I still have it in my garage and I keep using it from time to time. The dirt machine comes with a four-stroke engine and provides easy throttle control. There is the push start button that every beginner can use without problems. This is a pretty lightweight motorcycle with a low center of gravity, which makes it easy to control and move around even by a learner. On this dirt bike, you will find it comfortable to ride thanks to the good riding position and cushy seat. Although ground clearance is lower in this motocross beginner machine, you will still be able to ride on different terrains over obstacles thanks to large tire size (21-inch and 18-inch).
Specifications:
• Engine of this dirt beginner motorcycle: 223.00 cc four-stroke;
• Gearbox: six-speed;
• Weight of this bike: 113.0 kg (249.1 pounds);
• Seat height of this dirt machine: 878 mm (34.6 in.), adjustable;
• Starter: electric and kick;
• Ground clearance: 305 mm (12.0 in.);
• Fuel capacity of this dirt bike: 7.00 l (1.85 gals).
The 2019 version will cost you about $4,349, which is the lowest price for the machines that I have described in this article.

Yamaha YZ125

In my younger years, everyone would want to have this dirk bike. It is still one of the best machines that you can find in the 125cc category. This is a reward-winning motocross bike that can become your first step towards a more professional dirt machine. Since it has been on the US market for several decades, you will have no problems with finding relevant parts or a master to repair it if something goes wrong. The dirt machine is extremely light, which is one of the reasons why it is a wonderful machine for a beginner.
Specifications:

I hope that you will find my recommendations helpful to choose the best dirt bike, but it would also be great to search for other options.
