best sport touring motorcycles

About Our Selections

These selections considered ease of use, rideability, price, and how effective each motorcycle was achieving the stated goal of its class. We are confident that any of these bikes will be superb options for most riders.

To qualify for this list, the motorcycle can be of any base type, but oriented towards touring, meaning a sport-standard or standard seating style, touring-style handlebars vs clip-ons, and in most cases a touring oriented windscreen or wind deflector.
