Used bikes of the week - Nov 24

Published: 24 November 2010

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 - 1994 Honda CB250, £995
19,559 miles, 2 keys, aftermarket fairing fitted, very tidy for age.
We say: Excellent winter commuter. Minging fairing, but reliable and frugal.


Kawasaki ZX-6R

UNDER £2000 - 2000 Suzuki SV650, £1,595
10,179 miles, clean bike, sold as seen.
We say: Low miles, tidy and standard. A good buy, but check carefully for crash evidence.


Yamaha R1

UNDER £3000 - 2004 Honda CBR900RR FireBlade, £2,549
27,024 miles, MOT July 2011, Part Service History, HPI clear, crash bungs, gear indicator.
We say: Dirt-cheap 954 Blade is last Tadao Baba model. Inspect carefully at this money.


Triumph Sprint ST

UNDER £4000 - 1999 Yamaha R6, £3,249
150 miles. FSHi. Unbelievable one-owner bike, like new, new MOT and service
We say: One for collectors – the nearest you’ll find to brand new. Reasonable money too


Honda Hornet 600

UNDER £5000 - 2010 Kawasaki ER-6f, £4,999
1 delivery mile, pre-registered, unused in choice of colours.
We say: £1600 off list for a brilliant, new middleweight twin.


Harley XR1200

UNDER £6000 - 1994 Ducati 888, £5,500
Completely original, excellent condition, PSH with new belts and tyres 12 months MOT and tax.
We say: The last of the 888 series. These are appreciating modern classics, but still ride well.
