Best Middleweight Naked Motorcycles of 2024

Middleweight motorbikes are the perfect range between the small beginner bikes and the powerful monsters. Generally, they fall between 500 and 800cc (sometimes up to 900cc) and are great for loads of riding styles – whether you’re commuting, touring, or even racing. They’re a great choice for riders who want a mix of fun and practicality.

Below are some of our top picks for the best naked middleweights to look into for 2024.

KTM 790 Duke

The 790 Duke is proposed again for 2024, celebrating 30 years of the Duke family. The 790 Duke, named “No Bullshit”, fits the demands of a middleweight bike well, as it’s got great agility and strong acceleration. Equipped with the 799 cm³ LC8c parallel twin, set in one of the lightest and most compact chassis around, you can have a lot of fun with this bike and really throw it around on the roads. The riding position is nice and upright, so you won’t feel out of place on the commute, but you’ll still be comfortable taking it for a sportier ride. The only downside is that the suspension isn’t as adjustable as other bikes – which can be a real drawback for some.

Suzuki SV650

The SV650 debuted in 1999 and was a hit to say the least, now in 2024 the SV650 is back. The ABS has a polished, dependable powerplant that provides surprising performance with low emissions. It’s a great balance between fuel efficiency and performance, it can tackle a large range of conditions easily. The design gives it a very lightweight chassis and low seat height making it perfect for navigating traffic but also blending into a super fun ride that handles twisty roads in its stride. It’s also an excellent bike for customising, so you can change how it looks or any parts of the performance that aren’t quite right for your riding style. It’s particularly great for beginners or new riders.

Triumph Trident 660

The Trident 660 has an inline triple engine and is known for its wonderfully smooth delivery of power. This bike has all the excitement and oomph that you could want from the middleweight class, but the power is delivered in a completely controlled and comfortable way. It’s remarkably comfortable with an upright riding style and well-padded seat to help riders on those longer tours, the handlebars are ergonomically positioned, too, so all round, it’s just a really comfortable ride with the power for fun. A little spark in its engine gives it a charm, which makes it stand out from other bikes in this class. 2024 brings striking new colour options, with a Jet Black and Triumph Racing Yellow scheme.

Yamaha MT-07

The Yamaha MT-07 is one of the most popular middleweight bikes, and there’s very little to fault with it. The power and handling really hit the mark for this class of bikes, and it’s been nicely equipped with a wide range of tech. Yamaha is known for its engineering and the quality of its bikes, and the MT-07 is no exception. It’s fun to ride and is suitable for a wide range of conditions. The 2024 model features 5-inch TFT instruments with switchable screen styles, smartphone connectivity and the refined EU5.

Each of these bikes delivers what you need from the middleweight class. With the ability to tackle multiple ride types comfortably and provide the combination of nippiness and power that you want. If you’re looking at the middleweight range, these should be on your test ride list as you search for the perfect ride.
