Doble Motorcycles

Being the final edition, this mean looking, 2-tone version of Honda's VTR1000 SP-2 really is a beauty and needs to be seen. There is a full Akrapovic exhaust systen in place of the standard one. The pipes look the part and sound awesome too. With the installation of the Akrapovic exhaust, it has also benefited from being set up with a Power Commander which remains in place. It comes fitted with a tidy rear light configuration with integrated rear indicators. This cost of £450 to buy and really does finish it off nicely.

Why buy from Doble Motorcycles

Doble Motorcycles showroom

Doble Motorcycles is a long established family run business founded in 1967 by Mike Doble senior and late brother Chris Doble. It all started with just one shop no. 88 Brighton road selling one or two step through mopeds and motorcycle servicing. Chris managed the bike business while Mike set up a used car showroom across the road at 103, this also took off very well and thrived as the motor industry boomed. Time moved on and expansion was inevitable for the Motorcycle shop. Honda was increasing its model range rapidly with big sellers like the Superdream and CX500. The adjacent shop no. 90 was acquired and soon become filled with exciting new models. But again the market grew and the need to expand soon arrived. Seeming to take over one end of Coulsdon no. 86 was sought and another 50% increase in size took place. Honda's market share also grew to keep customers coming back time and time again. It became apparent that car sales were not able to keep pace with the two wheeled sales, so all resources were pooled together to once again double the business size to give huge choice and diversity to the customer. Doble Motorcycles Selling and specialising in the world's leading makes from day one has been Doble's biggest strength. Mike Doble Junior and Paul Styles now run the dealership along with Mike Doble Senior, Anne Doble, and a good enthusiastic and dedicated team who all love working with motorcycles. Dobles have been nominated Honda dealer of the year four times. The award is not just based on sales, but on product presentation and more importantly, all round customer care. This is something Dobles pride themselves on and a practise, which has earned them a reputation for service & reliability throughout their many years in Coulsdon.

HONDA SP-2  (2000-2010)
HONDA SP-2 (2000-2010) 5 out of 5View full MCN ratings 4.4 out of 5View full owners' ratings

MCN overall review verdict: Even today the SP is a very special bike and while it lacks the instant character that you get with a 916, the Honda is still packed full of spirit. It's just refined, smooth and polite in a typical Japanese fashion rather than outwardly flamboyant like an Italian. Does it justify the high prices on the used market? People are paying even more for the 916, why shouldn't a Honda model be as exclusive as a Ducati?   Watch the Honda SP-2 take on the Ducati 1098 and the Aprilia RSV1000R in our V-twin sports bike test
