Training Motorcycles
YAMAHA V-STAR 250

The Yamaha V-Star 250 is our #1 choice for novice motorcycle training. New riders will immediately feel comfortable when they throw a leg over this classic

V-twin cruiser. The low seat height allows riders to have both feet firmly planted on the ground, putting beginners at ease and inspiring confidence.

The best part is handling is so light it almost feels like riding a bicycle.
