A Motorcycle (バイク Baiku) is a vehicle commonly driven by the people of Earth.
A motorcycle is first seen in Dragon Ball being used by Bulma, who drives Goku and herself around on it whilst searching for the Dragon Balls. Bulma owns at least three motorcycles: a white motorcycle Goku borrowed to save her from a pterodactyl, a red one she used to go on the see with Goku and the Turtle, and a yellow motorcycle she used to go at Aru Village. Launch is seen riding a one-wheeled motorcycle on occasion, during her days as a bandit.
Dr. Flappe owns a snowmobile, Ninja Murasaki stole it when he thought he had the Dragon Balls, instead being Goku's lunch. Although General Blue is never seen riding a motorcycle in the General Blue Saga proper, the cover for Chapter 80 of the manga, The Three Stolen Dragon Balls, depicts him riding a motorcycle.
The policeman in West City who helped Goku find Bulma's house uses an airbike that he got fixed by Dr. Brief. A motorcycle policewoman appears in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, during Bulma's birthday party, observing the battle against the God of Destruction Beerus from afar.
Goku is often shown on a bike on the covers of Dragon Ball manga chapters.
In Dragon Ball GT, Goku, Pan and Trunks uses space scooters to go into a ship about to fall into a sun, and searches it for a Black Star Dragon Ball. With less than a minute until the ship is destroyed, the gang rushes and gets on their scooters after finding the Dragon Ball and rescuing a green boy. They get off the ship before it melts in the sun, but when their scooters get caught up in the gravity pull, they abandon them while Giru launches a grappling hook at their ship.

In Jump Force, there is a motorbike based on Launch's motorcycle the S-Cargo which can be used by the player's avatar as a vehicle to ride around the Jump Force base to more around more quickly. It is one of two Dragon Ball series vehicles in Jump Force the other being the Hover Pod.
In Super Dragon Ball Heroes: World Mission, a Capsule #9 Motorcycle of the same model as the one used by the teenage Bulma and Goku can be seen parked on the road of the main street of Hero Town near Rill's Item Shop. The Capsule #9 Motorcycle is always parked there and though it survives the second attack on Hero Town by the Organization of Babidi, it becomes covered in the ash and dirt that covers the town as a result of the attack. It is the only vehicle that appears in Hero Town and ironically there is a sign near where it is parked that features a statue of Teen Bulma.
