Quick reference

BMW F 900 R

The BMW F 900 R is a middleweight naked bike that is perfect for commuting and going for runs on the weekends, although its looks are a bit deceiving. Based on the looks, I expected it to have a three or four-cylinder engine but it, in fact, has a parallel twin.

So obviously it doesn’t sound as good as you might expect but it still packs 99 hp and the torque is plentiful in the lower range of RPMs. If you need something to get you to work and back, looks great and is still able to give you a good time over weekends, this might just be it.

F 900 R specs

Top speed134 mph / 216 kph
0-60 mph3.7 seconds
Range190 mi / 306 km
Wet weight465 lbs / 211 kg
Power99 hp / 74 kW
Torque67 lb-ft / 91 Nm

Honda Rebel 500

The Honda Rebel 500 is, in my own opinion, the best bike for those who want to learn how to ride (a beginners bike). I don’t think I would ever recommend the Rebel 300 as you would grow out of it within no time. The Rebel 500 should at least keep a new rider happy for a year or two.

It’s an easy bike to ride, highly modifiable, has excellent fuel consumption and the seat is positioned quite low so it’ll accommodate the shorter riders. It’s not a very powerful bike, so experienced riders will probably not respond so enthusiastically towards its performance.

Rebel 500 specs

Top speed110 mph / 177 kph
0-60 mph6 seconds*
Range198 mi / 319 km
Wet weight408 lbs / 185 kg
Power46 hp / 34 kW
Torque32 ft-lb / 43 Nm


Indian Scout Bobber Sixty

The Indian Scout Bobber Sixty is a cruiser motorcycle that is also great for beginners. But that doesn’t mean that it’s weak in any sense, just that it rides easily and has smooth power delivery. It’s not that much more expensive than the Rebel 500 but you get twice the cc’s and it’s a V-twin.

It’s so well priced that you don’t really see the sense of buying the bigger brother, the Scout Bobber for $2,000 more. I mean, 78 hp isn’t that far away from the 100 hp that the Scout Bobber has. This is good value for money.

Scout Bobber Sixty

Top speed100 mph / 160 kph*
0-60 mph4.2 seconds
Wet weight548 lbs / 249 kg
Power78 hp / 58 kW
Torque56 ft-lb / 88 Nm


Kawasaki Z900

The Kawasaki Z900 is a middleweight 948cc naked bike. Is it really a middleweight? It isn’t as heavy as the Z1000 and the price doesn’t seem to say that it’s a high-end naked bike but performance-wise it certainly does seem so.

It has a great sound coming from the inline 4-cylinder engine that produces 125 horsepower and 73 ft-lb of torque. I’ve always admired Kawasaki for producing bikes with performance that is way above average for an average price.

Z900 specs

Top speed135 mph / 217 kph
0-60 mph3 seconds
Range171 mi / 275 km
Wet weight468 lbs / 212 kg
Power125 hp / 93 kW
Torque73 ft-lb / 99 Nm

Final words

Those were m top picks for the best bikes under $10,000. But that doesn’t mean it’s the best bike for you since we all have different taste in aesthetics, riding positions and function. That’s why I added a list of all the bikes you could possibly buy in this price category.

I always try to keep my articles interesting and informative. And I’m always thankful when they are shared on social media platforms or Pinterest.
