Naked bikes are renowned for their upright riding positions, high gearing, and single-piece handlebars. Imagine a sport-bike, but with returned engines, stripped fairings, and street usability, and you’ll have a naked bike. There’s Honda’s Grom, Ducati’s V4, and many more attractive options, but which is the best? Let’s give you a sneak-peek into our ideas of which are the best naked bikes for 2021.

1. Kawasaki Z H2

Cheap, fast, lightweight, and powerful, are the words that best describe Kawasaki’s Z H2 naked bike. It uses the same structure and 998cc engine as Kawasaki’s H2 SX making people like it. However, its maximum speed isn’t much compared to premium options from Ducati and Honda.

Features

  • 527lbs
  • 147KW output
  • Brembo front callipers
  • 45mpg economy
  • Semi-active electronic suspension

  • 185mph max speed
  • Inline-four engine

Pros

  • High efficiency
  • Affordable
  • Beautiful design
  • Includes electronic suspension
  • Operates on a massive range

Cons

  • Low power to weight ratio

2. Yamaha MT-10 SP

It’s another favorite of ours and even cheaper than what Kawasaki offers. You get a fancy color palette and a special color scheme that includes blue rims and gold accents. The naked bike also has a killer wind protection despite its nature, although it isn’t particularly powerful.

Features

  • 998cc inline-four engine
  • NIX30 electronic suspension
  • 130m mileage
  • Weighs 463lbs
  • 150mph max speed
  • 825mm saddle

Pros

  • Some wind protection
  • Affordable
  • Sweet and stylish
  • Comes with a complete suspension
  • Controls superbly

Cons

  • Low economy and efficiency
  • Not the best power to weight ratio

3. KTM 1290 Super Duke R

The frame has been completely revamped for more stability and comfort in this new edition. Super Duke R has a much lighter frame than its predecessor and includes a new Cornering-ABS setup for better traction. It also has a V-Twin engine in place of the lower-powered 998cc Inline one.

Features

  • 1301cc V-Twin engine
  • Weighs 417lbs
  • 140m mileage
  • 40mpg economy
  • 132KW output
  • Electronic suspension
  • 835mm saddle

Pros

  • Reasonable price

  • Improved traction
  • The range is manageable
  • Beautiful design with fatback tire for stability

Cons

  • Not the best durability
  • Torque is mid-range

4. Ducati Streetfighter V4 S

It has a better setup and more powerful engine system than Yamaha but isn’t the cheapest bike on the block. Ducati V4-S’s range is also much smaller than what we like. However, there’s no denying the kind of premium design and power to weight ratio Ducati offers here.

Features

  • 200mph max speed
  • Mileage is 120m
  • 1103cc V4 engine
  • 845mm saddle
  • 153KW output

  • Fat tire for more stability
  • Extensive cooling plan

Cons

  • Pricy
  • Low mileage and no Ohlin’s suspension

5. Triumph Street Triple RS

While its 90KW engine output is relatively low among naked bikes, Triumph’s Triple RS is incredibly cheap. Its weight ratio isn’t the best, but the economy is high, and so is the mileage.

Features

  • 40mpg economy
  • 765cc Triple engine
  • Weighs 366lbs
  • 150mph max speed
  • The saddle is 825mm

Pros

  • Impressive speed and mileage
  • Ultra-lightweight
  • Cheap naked bike
  • Comfortable seat position
