To say the truth, such words as a “beginner” and a “sportsbike” can hardly get along. Ideally, one shouldn’t recommend beginners buying a superbike as their first motorcycle, for many reasons, one of the most crucial ones is their safety, of course. Newbies will expose their health and even life to greater risk if they dare to do this. On the other hand, all bikers regardless of their experience share the same dangerous hobby and have to put up with everyday highway risks. What’s more, it’s hard or even impossible to forbid hot-blooded young guys to dream about a superbike as their first steel beast. So, it only remains to give them a good piece of advice on what they should buy.

Aprilia RS 4 125
(https://bike.net/Apri…4_125_2011)
For those aged 17-18 willing to ride a superbike, there’s no choice but to stick with a 125 if they don’t want to have law issues. Such motorcycles can’t go beyond 15bhp. To ride this stuff a full A1 license will suffice. However, you can also ride it with L-plates. The Aprilia RS 4 125 worth $ 5,100 would be a nice choice for a beginner.

Don’t mind that it’s just a 125. Once you look through its specification list, you will realize that it’s a gorgeous thing. You will be amazed by its catchy instruments, upside-down forks, radially mounted brakes, to say nothing of its stunning aluminum frame. Perhaps, the only downside of this superbike is that it comes with quite mediocre tires that perform awfully. So, to avoid disappointment from the very beginning, you’d better purchase some Michelin or Pirelli tires for your superbike. By the way, as a pleasant option, you can order a quickshifter.

KTM RC 390

If you are a 19-year-old beginner, you have the right to upgrade to an A2 license. It means that you can choose from a rich list of superbike solutions.

We guess that you shouldn’t overlook the KTM RC 390, which can be purchased for about $5,499. Sharing the same chassis with the RC 125, the superbike boasts a nice 373cc single-cylinder free-revving engine, which will pleasantly surprise you with its amazing performance. What about going around corners as if your bike is on rails?

Kawasaki Ninja 650
Perhaps, the engine displacement mentioned above does not suit you. If you want more, you may even dare to move to the mightier 650-700cc range, but get ready to shell out for this more. We guess that the Kawasaki Ninja 650 worth $7,399 is the best superbike in this niche for a beginner.

Well, at first sight, one can hardly regard it as the most sporting solution out there. At least, it follows from its steel frame as well as conventional forks. Nevertheless, this bike is not completely deprived of some sporting capability. That is one of the most practical motorcycles due to its decent comfort, optional luggage, and pillion provision.

The regular version of the Kawasaki Ninja 650 is capable of giving out up to 67bhp, which might sound like a very bad news for you. Fortunately, its A2 version can be sold to younger bikers because in this case, a restricted license will be enough.
