What's the criteria?

Reliability? Comfort? Mfg support? Available options/models? Looks? Too many options to just randomly pick a dot on a poll...

You left the correct answer off the poll; "whatever I am riding now!"

Have had all of the big four and ridden quite a few other brands. They are all pretty good anymore.

Currently have a Zuki and a Kawi in the garage so those would be the two best.  Bigsmile

Honda made me a good mechanic.
Kawasaki proved I’m not.
And Suzuki? With a big enough hammer
you can fix just about anything.
Since I bought my Yamaha I’ve given
away two thirds of my tools.

Glad you are happy!

However, many brands are no longer independent. For example, Husqvarna was taken over by KTM.

Over the years, I've had several of each of the Japanese bikes. In my experience, the Hondas have been the most reliable and the Yamahas the least reliable (by far.) That being said, if I had to pick one as being the best by factoring in everything, I would probably have to say Yamaha. And it pains me to say that because at heart, I'm a Honda guy.

I've never had a Euro bike. I only like to work on bikes when I want to, not when I have to.  Razz

Amen

I see Yamaha has a two stroke dirt bike once again

Never thought we would see Japanese with 2 strikers in the year 2020
