Overview of Bike Types

Off-Road Category

Recreational Bikes

If you are new to dirt biking - this is a great place to start.

These bikes are less costly, easy to learn on and usually have a more comfortable seat at a reasonable height.  They also offer a softer, more predictable overall ride.  These types of bikes are highly recommended for Beginners.

Trail / Enduro Bikes

This is a bit of a catch-all category.  There are many bikes that are tuned for specific sub-classes within this category. 

The Trail / Enduro bike class is the most popular segment amongst BMA Members in the Off-Road category.

Motocross Bikes

As the name suggests, these are specialized bikes for closed-course, motocross competition

On-Road Category

Dual-Sport and Adventure Bikes

This is another broad category with many sub-classes available.  These are street-legal bikes with anywhere from a little to a lot of off-road capability.

Note:  The model examples we provide in each category are by no means exhaustive.  These are just examples of models available that could best suit their specific category.  (Electric Bikes? We won’t cover these here as the segment is too new, there are too few choices and they have not reached practical distance limits for off-road use)
