The 16 Best Motorcycles for Shorter Riders 

  • By cannonball

Finding a motorcycle when you’re a particular size can be tasking. Since the majority of the market is built around the ‘average’ rider, finding a bike when you’re a bit bigger or smaller narrows your options. Seat height on modern motorcycles – sports bikes, ADV, and even some sport standard models — can range on the high-side, causing those of us with more modest inseams to tippy-toe when at a light or starting up. On conventional bikes, having too large of a frame will mean you’re cramped and hunched; those shorter in stature find reaching the bars is literally a stretch and, more importantly, that planting a foot dat a stop becomes a circus balancing act.
