Every week we have over 10,000 bikes for sale online and in the paper. Look carefully and you can find gems at amazing prices.                

Here's my picks of the week to suit any budget:    

Yamaha SuperTenere


UNDER £1000 - 1996 Yamaha XJ600 Diversion, £599
A lot of cheap bike for the money which would be perfect as a winter hack.
We say: Will do a load of winters without drama. At this price worth a look.

 

Kawasaki ZX-6R


UNDER £2000 - 2000 Yamaha Fazer 600, £1200
Good condition, partial service history, twelve months’ MoT and tax, 39500 miles.
We say: Surprisingly nimble and bags of character.

 

Yamaha R1


UNDER £3000 - 19999 Honda Super Blackbird, £2595
Good condition, four months’ MoT, four months tax, plenty of extras. 
We say: Still a rocket ship by any standards.

 

Triumph Sprint ST


UNDER £4000 - 2001 Suzuki GSX-R600, £3025
Full history including old MoTs 17800 miles, dealer seller.
We say: High thrill per dollar ratio.

 

Honda Hornet 600

UNDER £5000 - 2009 BMW F800S, £4999
ABS, Heated Handlebar Grips, 1928 miles, dealer seller.
We say: Should hold its value well.

 

Harley XR1200

UNDER £6000 - 2007 Yamaha R1, £5150
Full service history, always garaged, 10,000 miles.
We say: Half the price of a new one; nearly as good.
