Looking for the 3 best motorcycle movies on Netflix right now is a huge challenge; first off, it’s difficult to say what is an actual motorcycle movie and what just has some motorcycles in it.
Secondly, biker movies have a very broad range of topics that can be covered.
For example, you could be looking for an action-packed biker gangs movie, like Warrior albeit with a little love story in it as well, or a free-living motorcycle lifestyle movie, like Easy Rider about two bikers dealing drugs in the American Southwest played by Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda.
You could be looking for a sports motorcycle movie that involves some type of stunt motorbiking, like Unchained: The Untold Story of Freestyle Motocross about freestyle motocross stuntmen, or for a biographical sports movie like The World’s Fastest Indian with Anthony Hopkins and Diane Ladd, about the world record-setting Burt Monroe.
Or maybe even a true biographical historic motorbike movie, like The Motorcycle Diaries, about a trip young Che Guevara took in South America.
What I did find when looking for the 3 best motorbike movies on Netflix is that many have been removed even though there are online lists saying Netflix has them all.

Bennett’s War is a 2019 motorcycle movie on Netflix starring Michael Roark, Trace Adkins, Ali Afshar, and Allison Paige. It has a 6 out of 10 on IMDB and a 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The movie is a motocross drama that focuses on a returning veteran from the War in Afghanistan who was part of an Army motorcycle unit. He’s injured in Afghanistan by an IED, which has him discharged from the military and sent back home.
When he arrives, he finds out that his family farm is not doing well, and his father may have to sell or lose the farm. He wants to find a way to help but being disabled and having other issues after returning from the war, he’s unsure what he can do.
Ultimately he decides the only way to make enough money to help his family keep the farm is to turn to competitive motocross racing.

The Netflix movie revolves around Tony, a motorcycle racer who wants to become a professional racer and make money for himself and his son.
During the day, he simply works as a forklift operator, and during the nights, he tries to look after his son with his ex-wife.

Deuces is a 2017 motorcycle/crime movie on Netflix. The story revolves around a detective, Jason Foster played by Lance Gross, who goes undercover with a notorious gang that the police have not been able to infiltrate for years.
However, a connection with the motorcycle loving gang boss Stephen “Deuces” Brooks played by Larenz Tate, allows the detective to form a strong bond with the leader and allow him to enter the gang.
The movie takes a turn when the detective starts to fall under the spell of the charismatic gang leader, and things are further complicated when the detective’s sister meets and falls for the gang leader as well.

What was extremely disappointing to see is that Sons of Anarchy and Mayans MC are not on Netflix anymore; it appears Sons Of Anarchy was removed in January 2022, and Mayans MC was never on there.
These two shows are potentially the ultimate motorcycle shows that should be available on Netflix, but that is not the reality anymore.
Maybe other streaming services can satisfy your taste for dangerous sports films on two wheels better. In the meantime, Netflix also has the film Nitro Circus, with Travis Pastrana and his friends on their amazing adventures.
