When it comes to getting started in the world of dirt biking, a lot of enthusiasts end up investing in the biggest, baddest dirt bike they can afford, which is usually not a concern if they buy one through salvage dirt bike auctions. The selection of the bike, however, should be based on their riding skills, and other factors, such as their height and weight, and of course, riding conditions. If you are a dirt bike enthusiast looking to buy your first mean machine, this article is for you. Read on, as we present a list of some of the best dirt bikes for beginners you can find in our online auction featuring wrecked motorcycles for sale. 

Suzuki RM85

Powered by an 84.7 CC 2-stroke liquid-cooled single cylinder engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission, the Suzuki RM85 is a perfect option for juniors who want to get started with dirt biking. While the mid-size dirt bike is easy on the pocket, its handling and maneuverability can be compared to many much costlier options; thanks to dependable braking and suspension features, which makes it an ideal choice for beginners.

Unarguably one of the best handling bikes in its class, the YZ125 is powered by a 124 CC liquid-cooled engine, capable of producing up to 35 horsepower, which gives you enough power to tackle challenging riding conditions without any trouble.
