Yamaha XVS1300 Custom (2014-current)

£8,999

1304cc, 72bhp, 110mph, Insurance group 12

Yamaha’s XVS1300 Custom off-the-peg chopper is a rebadged Yamaha Stryker, originally released in the US in 2011. It mixes ‘American Chopper’ styling with bomb-proof Yamaha build quality. Badge snobs might sneer at its lack of ‘Harleyness’ but it’s a capable machine and superb value for money.

Triumph America LT (2014-current)

£7,999

865cc, 60bhp, 125mph, Insurance group 10

Though by definition a ‘smaller bagger’ it’s not really a small bike. It’s manageable, yes, but is sufficiently full sized to carry two and luggage and tour hundreds of miles with ease. The LT also has enough style, comfort, performance and practicality and yet is still a doddle to get on with, as well. And, for the type of riders ...

Victory Magnum (2014-current)

£17,699

1731cc, 88bhp, 140mph, Insurance group

Victory like to claim the Magnum is the ‘boldest production bagger ever to hit the road’ and they’re not wrong. Bags of style, decent practicality and production reassurance. The only downsides are a TBA price and the Victory brand which hasn’t (yet) got the cache or convenience of Harley   We like the proper Custom styling and detail, the mass-built ...

Victory Hammer S LE (2014-current)

£13,995

1731cc, 88bhp, 140mph, Insurance group 17

The base Hammer S remains an appealing package that’s enduring well, hardly showing any signs of its age. It’s a crisp, clean, grunty American musclebike and an appealing alternative to the ubiquitous Harley. Its blacked-out powertrain is as bad-ass as they come and is a pleasure to blast away from the lights. Its styling somehow reminds of the re-invented Chevy ...

Yamaha XV950 (2013-current)

£7,199

942cc, 51bhp, 110mph, Insurance group 10

Like any proper bobber, Yamaha’s XV isn’t for the long, open road but is more suited to the urban dude. Yamaha has kept it relatively light, at 247kg, and a super-low seat height of 690mm makes it easy to control for virtually everyone. An abundance of torque delivers a fun, responsive ride and having suspension and brakes that work goes ...

Triumph Thunderbird Commander (2014-current)

£12,999

1299cc, 93bhp, 130mph, Insurance group 14

The Commander is aimed more at European riders while the LT is for the American market. Essentially a naked version of the Thunderbird LT, the Commander is a hoot to ride. Thumping along, booting the heel-toe between third or fourth, merely stroking the reassuring brakes, it doesn’t get much better. The lack of screen, panniers etc make the Commander lighter ...

Harley-Davidson FLHTK ElectraGlide Ultra Limited (2013-current)

£21,395

1690cc, 110bhp, 120mph, Insurance group 17

Don’t be misled by the new Glide’s seemingly unchanged looks. While the styling may be familiar (and largely sacrosanct according to Harley bosses) the vast majority of the bike is all-new. To be exact, there are over 100 changes, making this the biggest revision of the famous ElectraGlide since it first gained its ‘batwing’ fairing in 1969. What’s more, these ...
