Honda Motorcycles Can Fulfill Your Need for Speed

The hum of a powerful engine, the wind in your face, and the feel of sitting on a bike are all reasons people love riding motorcycles. Honda is a well-known manufacturer of a variety of motorcycles, and you can find many new and pre-owned Honda motorcycles for sale on eBay.

Dirt bikes versus street motorcycles

As you look at new or used Honda motorcycles on eBay, you'll first want to decide whether you want something designed more for the trail or the asphalt. Both can be fun to ride, but there are a few differences:

  • Frame - Off-road bikes are smaller and lighter, making them suited for taking quick turns and jumping. These frames are often made out of hard plastics instead of a street bike's metal design.
  • Suspension - With a street bike, like some of the vintage Honda motorcycles available, the suspension is minimal. Some modern models may use hydraulics to lessen the bumpiness of a ride, but these systems are built for light impact. Dirt bikes have heavy-duty suspensions, and they often have hydraulic tubes connecting the frame to the wheels.
  • Seat position - Street motorcycles on new or old Honda motorcycles can come with seats in a variety of positions. In general, cruisers have low-rider positions for more comfort. Off-road eBay motorcycles have a forward seating position and a low set of handlebars to maximize control and visibility.
Which motorcycles are built for racing?

Honda makes many sportbikes with high-quality components. These components work together to give the bikes the ability to accelerate and brake quickly, maintain high speeds, and take corners smoothly. Many sportbikes are lightweight with 500cc engines. Honda sportbikes include the CB1100 and the CB1000R. There is also a "supersport" category that includes slightly heavier bikes with larger engines that are typically between 600cc and 900cc. Supersport models include the CBR1000RR and the CBR600RR.

Which models are made for longer rides?

If comfort is important to you, consider looking at the new or used Honda motorcycles for sale that fall under the touring or cruiser categories. Touring bikes have a lot of storage options; they may come with backrests and windshields, and they could accommodate more than one rider. In a similar fashion, cruisers have low seat heights and laid-back riding positions, and they have a classic style. No matter which you choose, there are plenty of both new and old Honda motorcycles for sale on eBay. Examples of new and vintage Honda motorcycles for sale in these categories are the:

  • Touring - Gold Wing F6B, ST1300, and Interstate
  • Cruiser - Gold Wing Valkyrie, Fury, and NM4
