2016 Ultimate Motorcycling Holiday Gift Ideas | 40 Motorcycle Gifts

Except for the fact that it’s too cold in much of the United States to go riding, it remains the most wonderful time of the year. If you have a motorcycle rider on your Christmas gift list, here are 40 gifts—listed starting with the  most expensive to the most affordable—that will suit any budget and delight anyone who loves two wheels.

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Kymco K Pipe 125

  1. Kymco K-Pipe 125: Yes, you can get a real motorcycle for less than $2000. With full-size 17-inch wheels, and an eight-horsepower 124cc motor, the Kymco K-Pipe is street legal, gets 70 mpg, and weighs just 224 pounds (dry). It makes a fun, unique gift for any motorcyclist. $1999 (Kymco)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Schuberth E1 helmet

  1. Schuberth E1 Helmet: It has taken a while for Schuberth to get to the adventure market, but the new E1 is definitely ADV ready. Most adventure helmets are based on off-road helmets, but the Schuberth E1 has roots in the C3 modular touring helmet. That makes this a great touring helmet for ADV riders who focus on the street, and want something new. $829 (Review)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Arai Quantum

  1. Arai Quantum-X Helmet: Building on the success of the Corsair-X track helmet, the new Arai Quantum-X (and its close relative, the Signet-X) is designed to be the pluperfect street bike helmet. The Quantum-X takes many of the Corsair’s safety features and puts them into a helmet that has a larger eyeport so the rider can see more of the road. $680 (Review)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: RSD Ronin

  1. RSD Ronin Limited Steel Collection Jacket: Best known for amazing custom motorcycles, Roland Sands Design also has outstanding motorcycle apparel. The RSD Ronin jacket, part of the Limited Steel Collection, has a classic style that works on and off the bike. If your Christmas gift recipient is going to ride with it—be it a sport bike or a cruiser—make sure to buy CE-rated protection for the armor-ready pockets in the elbows, shoulders, and back. $620 (Roland Sands Design)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Shoei X2

5. Shoei Hornet X2 Helmet: A classic adventure helmet, the Hornet X2 has all the features needed for hard-core off-pavement ADV riding, as well as the comfort required for long stretches on the highway. With superb ventilation, the Shoei Hornet X2 is especially effective for summertime riding. $604 (Review)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Dainese Continental Jacket

  1. Dainese Continental D1 Gore-Tex Jacket: With a sophisticated streamline look, the Dainese Continental D1 Gore-Tex jacket is prepared for riding in all sorts of winter weather conditions. The Gore-Tex layer is waterproof, while the Thermore fill keeps the rider warm. There are features that allow for riding in warmer weather, and the back has room for an optional CE-rated G1 or G2 back protector from Dainese. $600 (Dainese)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: SUOMY SR Sport

  1. Suomy SR Sport Helmet: Suomy’s profile in the United States has been an inconsistent one, but with a new importer, their lightweight helmets are available again. We quite like the Suomy SR Sport, and there are a wide range of colors and graphic treatments—15 in all—a hallmark of the brand. If you know an Andrea Dovizioso fan, there are three choices, including the Dovi Mugello shown here. Read our Suomy SR Sport review. $550 (Suomy)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Held Harvey 76

  1. Held Harvey 76 Jacket: For many riders, this is exactly what a motorcycle jacket is supposed to look like—racing stripes and distressed leather. While it looks good off the bike, it comes standard with very-comfortable CE-approved D3O shoulder and elbow protection. Be sure to get an optional CE back protector from Held to keep your gift recipient safe. $550 (Review)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Sena 20S

  1. Sena 20S Dual Pack: Communication is imperative when out riding, and the Sena 20S Dual Pack allows two riders or a rider and a passenger to talk clearly and easily. Sure, you can get a single 20S ($299), but it’s nice to have someone to talk to. Of course, the 20S works with your smartphone or GPS, and has a built-in FM radio for solo riders. We’re big fans of the Sena software, which is highly user friendly. $549/pair (Review)


  1. Condor Motorcycle Garage Dolly: If someone on your list has a big bike in the garage and needs to move it around easily, he will love the Condor Motorcycle Garage Dolly. Regardless of how unwieldy the motorcycle is, the Condor Dolly can handle it. $444 (Review)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Simpson Helmet

  1. Simpson Model 30 Bandit Helmet: With authentic retro flair, the M30 mixes dirt bike and street styles for a strikingly original look. The standard composite shell shown can be upgraded to carbon fiber, which cuts a half-pound from its weight, while adding $200 to the price. $400 (Simpson)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Monster Moto Mini Bike

  1. Monster Moto Classic Mini Bike: It may look like it’s straight out of the 1960s, but the Monster Moto Classic Mini Bike is new, and available for a song. There are certainly better motorcycles for kids (though not at this price), but the fun of the Monster Moto Classic is adults using it as a pit bike or campground cruiser. $400 (Monster Moto)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: AXO Aragon

  1. AXO Aragon Boots: Road racers and track day fans who want a boot with standout visuals, that also is highly functional, will love a pair of AXO Aragon boots. With styling liberally cribbed from the dirt bike world, the Aragon boots have a MotoGP-inspired name and all the high-end safety features you expect. $350 (AXO)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: IXS eliott

  1. IXS Eliott Jacket: This vintage-flavored jacket is part of IXS’s Spirit of ’79 collection.

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Cortech Latigo 2

  1. Cortech Latigo 2.0 Leather Jacket: Named after one of the most exhilarating roads in Malibu, the Cortech Latigo 2.0 leather jacket has quiet styling that can work for riders of sport bikes, as well as cruiser riders who want a fully technical jacket. There are CE protectors in the shoulders and elbows. To get proper back protection, you’ll have to source it from another company, but it’s worth doing. $290 (Cortech)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Alpinestars GP Pro Glove

  1. Alpinestars GP Pro R2 Glove: For gift recipients who demand the ultimate in performance and protection, the Alpinestars GP Pro R2 glove is a leader in both categories. The armor is there to save your hands on the highest speed circuits, yet the GP Pro R2 allows the tactile feedback required when pushing 200 mph. $280 (Alpinestars)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Nexx XG10

  1. Nexx X.G10 Muddy Hog Helmet: It wasn’t long ago that if you wanted a helmet with this sort of style, you had to settle for a non-DOT display lid. Nexx brings the past into the present with the X.G10 Muddy Hog helmet. It’s both ECE and DOT legal, and is a fashionable choice when the ultimate in protection is not required. If you don’t like the Muddy Hog, the X.G10 line has other retro paint jobs available. $250 (Nexx)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: HJC Ironman

  1. HJC Marvel IS-17 Iron Man Helmet: Comic books and motorcycle worlds collide in the new line of HJC helmets with Marvel graphics. The Iron Man edition shown uses the IS-17 helmet as a base.

Fully waterproof, including waterproof zippers and neoprene cuffs, the Atomic 5.0 also offers CE-approved protection in the shoulders and elbows (you’ll need to add it for the back), as well as venting for when temperatures rise. $170 (Joe Rocket)

  1. RS Taichi CE Back Protector: In this Christmas Gift Guide, we have mentioned many times the need to add a CE-approved back protector to motorcycle jackets. RS Taichi has an excellent line of CE Level 2 back protectors in a variety of sizes.

Oh, and Taichi also makes excellent technical jackets of it own. $45 (RS Taichi)

Motorcycle Gift Guide: Canyon Dancer Bar
