Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Honda FMX650.                   

Insurance group: 11
Engine: 644cc single
Power: 37bhp
Top speed: 96mph 
Weight: 163kg                        

The Honda FMX650 feels light, flickable and the beefy 45mm upside-down forks handle town action with contempt.

The Honda FMX650 is well made of proven components borrowed from other, older Honda motorcycles. It’s sturdy and low-speed drops do nothing than scratch the Honda FMX650's cheaply replaceable plastics.

The Honda FMX650 feels light, flickable and the beefy 45mm upside-down forks handle town action with contempt. One thing the Honda FMX650 doesn’t want for is brakes – it may only have a single disc and a sliding pin, twin-piston front brake but it’s a combination that’s well able to haul the motorcycle up quickly.
