Top 10 Cheapest Motorcycles In Canada (2022)

Buying a motorcycle that isn’t too expensive is a good idea when trying to be on a budget. However, the market today is flooded with several motorcycles but not all of them fit all budgets. While some might be cheap, they might not last long due to poor quality.

However, in this list, we didn’t just pick the cheapest bikes on the market because that would be worthless. We looked at all of the major brands that operate in Canada and researched the models to find the best cheapest ones. 

Top 10 Cheapest Motorcycles In Canada

1. Benelli TNT135 (2021)

Though the Honda Grom and Kawasaki Z125 Pro attract the most attention in the minibike class, Benelli’s more recent introduction into the market with the TNT135 puts an aggressive, sleek, and distinctly Italian twist on the standard minibike formula. The TNT135 is the smallest member of the Chinese-made hyper-naked models, with a streetfighter-style headlight, dual-pipe exhaust configuration, and body-integrated tail-lighting. Despite all these, it’s the TNT135’s sub-$2,800 MSRP that truly sets it apart from its peers.

  • Style: Minibike
  • Engine: 134.7cc SOHC single-cylinder engine with air and oil cooling
  • Power: 11.3 horsepower and 7.4 pound-feet torque
  • Weight: 255.7lbs
  • Price: $2,749

2. Hooligun Cleveland Cyclewerks (2020)

Cleveland Cycle Werks’ Hooligun is an incredibly capable yet affordable thrill machine with an accessible MSRP made possible by the use of the American-assembled machine’s Chinese-sourced powertrain. Available in a variety of liveries, with 250cc or 450cc engine sizes, and in dirt-focused dual-sport or kart track-ready supermoto setups, the Hooligun is an incredibly capable yet affordable thrill machine with an accessible MSRP made possible by the use of the American-assembled machine. Despite its low price, the Hooligun comes with a surprisingly high level of equipment, including an inverted front-end, a six-speed transmission, and a fuel-injected engine capable of more than 80 mpg and speeds exceeding 70 mph.

  • Style: Dual-sport / Supermoto
  • Engine: 450cc liquid-cooled SOHC single-cylinder 
  • Power: 43.5 horsepower and 31.4 pound-feet torque
  • Weight: 265lbs
  • Price: $3,700

3. Honda Trail 125 ABS (2021)

The Trail 125 ABS (also known as the Trail CT125 Hunter Cub) is the newest addition to Honda’s iconic Cub range, which dates back to 1958 and is the world’s best-selling model line with over a million units sold. This scrambler version of the eighth-liter runner, which debuted as a concept vehicle at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, now features a rear luggage rack, high-mount exhaust, additional suspension travel, spoked wheels, crash bars, and a small skid plate.

  • Style: Adventure Scooter
  • Engine: 124.9cc SOHC single-cylinder air-cooled Power: 9 horsepower and 8.1 pound-feet torque
  • Weight: 259lbs
  • Price: $3,899

4. Honda Monkey (2021)

The Honda Monkey is another modern interpretation of a beloved motorcycle icon. This time, it arouse the spirit of the little Z series of the 1960s and 1970s. It uses the same air-cooled eighth-liter powertrain as Big Red’s Grom, Trail 125, and Super Cub. Though the modern version has a visual design that is very similar to the original, the new Monkey has twice the power output of its predecessors, making it a machine that is better suited to short-distance rides around town rather than fields and off-road trails.

  • Style: Minibike
  • Engine: 124.9cc SOHC single-cylinder air-cooled Power: 9 horsepower and 8.1 pound-feet torque
  • Weight: 231.5lbs
  • Price: $3,999

5. KTM Duke 200 in 2021

KTM’s 390 Duke debuted in 2013 and quickly became the market leader in the premium small-displacement naked class. Now, after more than a decade of success and a slew of notable mechanical and component upgrades, the Ready To Race brand is offering the same fan-favorite Duke in a smaller, even more manageable, and new-rider-friendly 200cc version. The fifth-liter variant keeps its big brother’s sharp Kioka-Designed styling and threatening appearance, as well as its litany of top-of-the-line running gear, such as inverted WP forks and mono-shock, and ABS-enabled Brembo-made brakes, despite the smaller displacement and lower price.

  • Style: Naked
  • Engine: 200cc DOHC single-cylinder liquid-cooled 
  • Power: 25.5 horsepower and 14.25 pound-feet torque
  • Weight: 331.3lbs
  • Price: $3,999

6. Yamaha V-Star 250 (2021)

The Yamaha V Star 250 is a surprisingly capable touring bike that comes at an almost suspiciously low price. The pint-sized cruiser variant not only has a true V-Twin powertrain, but it’s also more than capable of touring chores, with a fuel economy of 78 mpg and a top speed of almost 85 mph. On the other hand, the quarter-liter V Star’s 27-inch seat height and 324-pound curb weight make it an excellent choice for urban riding and commuting. Even though it lacks the spirit and status of a Harley or an Indian, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better entry-level cruiser.

  • Style: Cruiser
  • Engine: Air-cooled 249cc SOHC 60° V-twin Power: 15.2 ft-lbs torque
  • Weight: 324lbs
  • Price: $4,499

7. FB Mondial HPS 125 (2021)

FB Mondial which was founded in 1929, is a great Italian motorcycle manufacturer with a storied racing history spanning over a decade in the 1940s and 1950s. FB Mondial has been revived (again) by heirs of the original owners and operators, and now trades in spectacular neb-retro-designed, Chinese-manufactured small-displacement motorcycles such as the HPS (or “Hipster”) 125. The HPS 125 is powered by a liquid-cooled, fuel-injected DOHC single and has one of the most modern and innovative designs in the entry-level market.

  • Style: Neo-café racer
  • Engine: 124cc DOHC single-cylinder liquid-cooled 
  • Power: 13.41 horsepower and 7.75 ft-lbs torque
  • Weight: 293lbs
  • Price: $4,512

8. Yamaha MT-03 (2021)

The MT-03 is a popular and highly versatile urban commuter bike that can be used for everything from touring to canyon riding and track days. It is the naked counterpart to the Japanese brand’s YZF-R3 supersport bike. The little MT, which is powered by a parallel-twin engine, has aggressive-looking headlights flanked by a pair of sharp air scoops, as well as an angular belly-pan and pair of radiator covers that help to fill in the negative space surrounding the 321cc two-banger, giving the small displacement bike an appearance similar to its 890cc, 689cc, and 998cc siblings.

  • Style: Naked
  • Engine: 321cc DOHC parallel-twin liquid-cooled 
  • Power: 41 horsepower and 20.2 pound-feet torque
  • Weight: 373lbs
  • Price: $4,599

 

9. Suzuki TU250X (2021)

If you need a classic-styled, no-grills standard bike, the Suzuki’s TU250X is the best option to go for. Its big headlamp bucket, chrome highlights, spoked wheels, huge fenders, and swept-back muffler all contribute to the bike’s looks to make it classic. However, the 250cc classic from Hamamatsu has benefited from decades of technological advancements, giving it an old-school style as well as modern-day durability, emissions, and fuel efficiency.

  • Style: Standard
  • Engine: 249cc SOHC single-cylinder air-cooled 
  • Power: 16.1 horsepower and 11.5 pound-feet torque
  • Weight: 326lbs
  • Price: $4,649

10. BMW G310R (2021)

Though it may seem too good to be true, a brand-new BMW Motorrad bike with amazing performance capabilities relative to its price can be purchased for less than $5,000. The G310R has upside-down gold-anodized forks, a multifunction digital display with fuel-level and gear-position indications, cast-aluminum wheels, and a reasonable 30.9′′ seat height, which is inspired by its liter-sized roadster big brother, the S1000R. Its 313cc single engine allows it to reach motorway speeds of roughly 90mph and is available in one of three color variations, including a traditional M Racing livery.

  • Style: Roadster
  • Engine: 313cc DOHC single-cylinder liquid-cooled 
  • Power: 34 horsepower and 21 pound-feet torque
  • Weight: 349lbs
  • Price: $4,945
