Check out Motorcyclist's dual sport motorcycle reviews, in depth analysis, action photos, and the latest news on all the best dual sport bikes.
Check out the latest motorcycle news and motorcycle reviews of dual sport bikes. This streetbike segment is great for motorcyclists who want a do-it-all bike, capable of commutes and riding trails before the sun sets. Many dual sport bikes are based on off-road motorcycles in a manufacturer’s lineup, making them well-suited for hard riding in the dirt. Yet they’re typically smaller than adventure motorcycles.
Others are engineered for road comfort while still retaining the chops to comfortably tackle a backwoods fire road. Key features of many dual sports include off-road-capable tires, a larger front wheel, long-travel suspension, torque-rich engines, and functional design that lets you move around the motorcycle when riding tricky terrain.
You’ll find all the information you need before making your next dual sport purchase. We’ve got the lowdown on bikes like the Kawasaki KLR650 and Honda CRF450L, the Suzuki DR650S, and KTM 350 XC-F, and everything in between.
