It is common for many people to fall in love with the motorcycle displayed at the Kawasaki dealer and immediately purchased it in cash. It was love at first sight and you promised yourself that you will stick to the bike for better or worse until you realized that it is too heavy for you to manoeuvre and control.
There are many similar stories where a buyer of a bike considered only the design and not the details. Dealers usually have sales agents that help potential buyers check the features. However, aside from the careful scrutiny it is important to consider whether the height fits you.
If you are an average person who is not very tallit is important to mount the bike and check the seat height. Most of adventure bikes and off-road motorcycles that are being sold by dealers are quite tall and require long legs for balancing. When choosing the ride height, make sure that you can put both feet on the ground while seated.
Hands have different sizes. Some people have small hands while others have large hands with more powerful grip. Make sure that the levers are smooth and soft to operate. There are levers that are spaced farther apart from the handle grips which are significantly better when crawling during heavy traffic. If handle bars are too wide, they can trigger back pains. Make sure that the body can handle long periods of forward riding position
Motorbikes have different classifications. Foot pegs may be positioned slightly forward, in the middle or rearward. Food pegs of race bikes are positioned slightly rearward. On cruisers and touring bikes, the foot pegs are placed forward. If you are buying a motorcycle, the riding style must be adapted to the foot peg position for comfort and safety purposes.
One of the best selling bikes from the Kawasaki dealer is the Kawasaki Ninja 300 that looks like a sports bike but more manageable for a beginner. However, there are also other Kawasaki road bikes available that are more suitable to your lifestyle. If you are undecided, there is a team that can explain all the features and details of the bike.
