The new Honda Fireblade and Fireblade SP might be grabbing the headlines this week, but more people will buy one of these three bikes in 2017.
The new Kawasaki Z650, Suzuki SV650 and Yamaha MT-07 might not be the most powerful or technologically advanced bikes available but they're brilliant at what they do and make riding a pleasure. To read the full group test, pick up a copy of the January 25 issue of MCN.
Kawasaki Z650, £6099
Far more than a rehashed ER-6n, the Z650 is 17kg lighter than the ER and boasts a new frame and swingarm as well as a lower seat, improve styling and more grunt.
Yamaha MT-07, £6099
Yamaha's best-selling motorcycle in Europe has been a smash hit since it was launched in 2014. It's the benchmark middleweight in terms of price and performance.
Suzuki SV650, £5699
The SV650 was rejuvenated last year with more than 80 changes that included a new chassis, revised styling, a 6kg weight loss and over 60 altered components within its V-twin engine.
