Motorcycle riders are not just ridden anymore. For many people it’s a stress Buster, mood lifter, an unexplainable feeling, in short–motorcycle rides are therapy rides! Motorcycles are just a perfect fit for everyone–if you know how to ride cool motorcycles then you know how ecstatic feeling it is, and if you are not a rider then you must have experienced the adrenaline rush while sitting behind when someone else is driving. Whatever it is, rider or a passenger, motorcycle rides are what you need for an emotional release from the stressful life of deadlines and responsibilities.
For social media influencers, cool-looking motorcycles are the best because the aesthetics of the motorcycle makes them capture it to upload on social media, and the viewers can’t help but get mesmerized by the beauty of motorcycles.
Why do you need a cool motorcycle?
You know those things people tell you to do, like ‘you live only once, do everything so that you have moments to lean on during tough times—then cool motorcycles are one of those moments that really add to the experience.
Motorcycles’ craze and business remained unfazed even when the toughest-pandemic year passed through it. 2020 was an interesting yet terrible year for us and for motorcyclists it was just weird. Travel restrictions, social distancing, and price fluctuations made them confused–whether they should stay home or just take the advantage of social distancing to ride their cool motorcycle on almost empty roads at full high speed–a dream!
Amidst this chaos, one thing remained constant and that was the same manufacturing speed of motorcycles. Manufacturers continued to make cool motorcycles and motorcyclists encouraged them by buying their motorcycles even when the prices hiked up suddenly. The beautiful and cool motorcycles are literally eye candy for everyone, even the ‘I am not a fan of vehicles’ people get excited and captivated by the strong and dominant aura of motorcycles.
Motorcycles are not just powerful look wise but will give you the powerful and independent kind of feeling when riding them, that’s why people crave it even more once they get the surreal feel of riding a motorcycle.
Are you obsessed with motorcycles?
If yes, then it is definitive that you will buy motorcycles, the trending ones, the latest ones, whatever it is, even if it means you have to tighten your budget even more. The feeling of riding a motorcycle is enough for them that they never regret investing their hard-earned money on motorcycles, even on the ‘overly priced-cool looking’ motorcycles. But things changed for motorcycles in 2020, it went through economic pressure which resulted in affordable, practical, and new unique designs production of motorcycles.
Of course, with so much variety available, you will need help before deciding on the type of motorcycle to buy, because it must suit your style otherwise it is just a waste of your money. The most effective way of finding the right motorcycle is to know where and how you will be riding it, the type of brand is not the key factor here, it’s you and your style. Once you get an idea of which type of motorcycle suits your style and comfort the best, you will easily be able to compare the different brands and styles of bikes before buying one from them.
Best and Cool Looking Motorcycles
Let’s look at some of the best and cool looking motorcycles (well, all of them are cool looking and powerful )-
Kawasaki Ninja 400
The name itself is giving us the ‘savage’ kind of vibes. This lightweight motorcycle is perfect for beginners who want to avoid getting crashed just because they couldn’t handle the heavyweight of bikes. The engines are built practically keeping newbies in mind. Affordable with super cool looks are just the perfect fit for those who want to learn to ride skillfully.
Apart from the cool looks, the most attractive thing about Kawasaki Ninja 400 bikes is its engine. Unlike other single-cylinder road focused-engines, that are sporty but start vibrating at highway speeds, the ninja’s two-cylinder engines are sporty yet smooth. They glide smoothly through highways with manageable light engines that are perfect for traffic and parking lots.
Kawi company is one of the most trusted bike companies. It has been gaining the trust of its customers for decades with its promising engines and cool bikes, and not to forget–has one of the best customer services in the bike industry. Kawi didn’t make any changes or updates in Ninja bikes, they are the same as they were in 2019, the only thing is that you have to pay an extra $300 for ABS, which the company doesn’t provide.
The unchanged 2019 model can work just fine and is better than most updated new version bikes. Kawasaki Ninja 400 is powerful with a storage compartment above the gas tank, and an optional automatic transmission.

Weight of the bike including the fuel and fluids- 366lb.
Triumph Thruxton RS
Get the cool and retro feeling, all in one with this RS bike. Triumph is known for its unique yet eye-catching designs of engines and bikes. The company has a knack for producing modern engines with a touch of old designs that are worth our hard-earned money. Thruxton RS is another one of the Triumph company’s bikes that is awesome with modern engines and cool with old looks. Triumph is already a well-known reputed company and Thruxton RS just added on to the already built demand for Triumph bikes.
Thruxton came out in 2016, and it didn’t even take a year to become famous. It was praised for being a modernly built bike with comfortable features, a powerful engine, and a sporty look. Yet carrying the look of beautiful classic/retro kind of bikes. You know how social media is filled with the word ‘aesthetic’, well, this bike is what aesthetic really means.
Since 2016, it has been updated constantly. Whether the changes were made on the engines or on the looks, whatever it was, the company just wants their bikes to remain up to date. Thruxton gets upgrades like Öhlins rear suspension, twin 310mm Brembo front brakes, grippy Metzler Racetec tires, and even a lighter-weight battery–a bike lover once wrote a review on their website saying ‘I know what perfect bikes are and this is what perfect bike looks like.
Recently they updated the engine to a parallel-twin engine which has a new cylinder head, pistons, and camshafts, with a new clutch. The thinner engine parts and lighter chassis literally make a bike lighter and that’s exactly what Thruxton bikes are. With the update of light engines, these bikes have lost almost 15 pounds.
But if you compare it to sportbikes, then these retro bikes are heavier because of RS’s big and powerful engines. A powerful engine doesn’t mean they start making noise when traveling for a long time, RS has brilliant and smooth steering that keeps the engine running without making any noise. Same as the RS bikes, Triumph company has produced a bike called Triumph street twin, and they are equally good as the RA bikes but with a plus point and that is they are cheaper than the RS bikes, with the same features.

KTM 790 Adventure R
One of the easiest bikes that you can control and manage however and whenever you want. There are many powerful and strong bikes that are perfect for adventurous trips with their huge 1,000-cc-plus engines but KTM with its narrow engine will give you the same adventurous feeling. The 790’s parallel-twin is what you need for a small yet best adventure ride.
They are not heavy at all. You can ride them anywhere you want easily. This is so because there is no unnecessary bodywork or accessories which reduces the weight to a nice amount. These lightweight bikes are easily manageable on rough roads like surfaces with muds and sands. That makes the 790 the perfect fit for adventure drivers.
790 comes with high-end tech-like traction control and a colour dash. KTMs were serious when they said that the engines are their number one priority because it has been reported that KTM takes endurance testing for its engines to extremes. KTM workers said that they take 48 testers running on dynamometers for 180 hours nonstop!
Engine- 799-cc parallel-twin
Power: 95 hp
Weight (with fuel and fluids): 460 lb.
BMW R1250GS is another cool bike of the same category, costlier than KTM but with more horsepower and customization options.
Harley-Davidson Street Glide
It would be unfair and actually stupid to not add Harley Davidson bikes to the list of cool-looking motorcycles. Everyone, everyone means even the non-motorcyclists know about Harley Davidson’s beauty. A brand name that is famous all over the world. They are known for big, comfortable, and without a doubt, attractive cruisers.
But nowadays they are building some unusual motorcycles these days that are different from their usual bikes. Harley Davidson brand has always been dominating the bike industry because there are no engines available like the Harley-Davidson 45-degree V-twin powerful engines and no other brand has this much historic appeal. Harley Davidson’s street glide bikes are just like their other bikes–just perfect and comfortable in every way.
It has modern built engines, designs, features, and convenience. It has many modern attractive features like a colour touch screen, pushes to start, cruise control, and anti-lock braking that accounts for lean angle–everything a modern and cool-looking bike should have.
Street glide bikes have made their customer’s protection a number one priority. This is because they have linked and attached the front and rear breaks. All this helps the huge bike come to a safe stop even in a panic situation. The range is more than any other competing model with its big six-gallon tank. The engine is built with torque techniques that keep the tires of the bike fixed even on curved surfaces.
