Best for Vintage Looks

Suzuki TU250X

The TU250X combines the classic cool look of Japanese bikes from the 1960s with the reliability of modern rigs. The 249cc, air-cooled four-stroke is tuned for urban fun – it has plenty of torque to get you off the line when the light turns green, while providing enough power to hit 80-plus mph on the highway, where the suspension feels surprisingly plush. It looks great standing still, too, with just the right amount of chrome to lend it curb appeal. [$4,399; suzukicycles.com]
