Honda XLV750R (1983-1986)

N/A

749cc, 61bhp, 100mph, Insurance group

The Honda XLV750 R was the first Japanese made monster trail bike to go head to head with the R80GS from BMW. Both bikes were twin cylinder machines and both had shaft drive. Unfortunately the XLV was too top heavy for even gentle off-road riding and also suffered major gearbox faults. The model was discontinued in 1983. Style is pure ...

Triumph Thruxton (2003-current)

£7,349

865cc, 69bhp, 115mph, Insurance group 13

The Triumph Thruxton is a great looking retro cafe racer, which just doesn't have the punchy power you'd expect of a big twin. It also sounds dull, boring almost. Compared to buying a well restored Triton 650 for the same money, the modern day Triumph Thruxton is a weak imitation of genuine cafe racer cool.

Harley-Davidson FXDLI Dyna Low Rider (1991-current)

£10,995

1584cc, 67bhp, 115mph, Insurance group 15

Another Harley staple aimed at riders with traditional tastes who are looking for a machine that’s both comfortable and easy to handle. The Harley-Davidson Dyna Low Rider combines a low seat, mid-mounted foot controls and pull back bars for easy comfort. Like all 2007 Hogs it also benefits from the new 1558 engine, too.

BMW R1200S (2006-2007)

£8,955

1170cc, 122bhp, 148mph, Insurance group 13

Somehow you already know if you want the BMW R1200S. The looks divide opinions, but only half as much as the Boxer engine and the Telelever/Paralever suspension do. BMW has strained the limits of these design parameters – and it only just comes off. As an oddball track motorcycle it works, but as an accomplished all-rounder it falls short of ...
