Road trips on a motorcycle are one of the most thrilling things you can experience. There are so many benefits to riding a touring motorcycle, especially if you're interested in traveling, road trips, or any other kind of long-distance travel.
While technically any bike can be used for road trips, touring motorcycles are specifically designed for long-distance travel. They are usually larger and heavier than other types of motorcycles, and they have features that make them more comfortable for riding long distances, such as a larger fuel tank and a more comfortable seat. Touring motorcycles often have fairings and windscreens to protect the rider from the wind and weather, and they may also have luggage racks or storage compartments for carrying gear.
Touring motorcycles can be a little bit more pricy than your average bike due to the sheer size and amount of accessories that they provide. For a new entry-level touring motorcycle you’re looking at spending between $9,000 and $15,000 and if you’re wanting a more expert level of boujee bike, be ready to shell out more. If that seems a little steep, you can always consider purchasing a used touring model.
There are plenty of manufacturers who carry touring motorcycles, but some OEMs do it better than others. While on your search for the best tourer check out Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, and Yamaha just to name a few.
