Default The 10 Most Reliable Motorcycle Companies



Quote:
Here at Motorcycle.com we get to ride all of the newest, latest, and greatest motorcycles on the planet. However, more often than not, our time with each bike spans the course of weeks, maybe months (but definitely not years), as new bikes are constantly flowing through our proverbial garages, waiting to get tested. This means we have reviews of almost every motorcycle on the market, but it also means that we lack firsthand experience learning about long-term durability and maintenance. So, when our readers ask about the reliability of a certain make or model, it’s a difficult question to answer, as reliability testing requires ownership for several years – something we simply aren’t in a position to provide.

Thankfully, the folks at Consumer Reports have compiled a motorcycle reliability study, gathering information from more than 11,000 riders, sharing their experiences on more than 12,000 motorcycles purchased new between 2008 and 2014. With this data, CR adjusted for mileage ridden over a 12-month span and estimated failure rates. Like golf, the lower the number (or percentage, in this case), the better the score. CR’s language in the link above is vague, using words like “trouble prone” and not defining what constitutes a failure. Nonetheless, the results are still relevant. Here they are, from worst to best.

Reminds me when we were riding with a group of harley folks. There was one guy who seem to be a bothered by my wife riding a Harley and why would I ride a "jap" bike. The guy raving about the history of harleys and had to point out that the Harleys have emergency flashers and had to demonstrate that when you hold both turn signals down it would activate the E flashing. I turned to my wife and said " I don't need them ,because I don't break down" my wife started laughing and the guy just looked at me as if I were joking... We didnt have anymore conversations with him.
