Save yourself a fortune on a brand-new bike

Published: 03 April 2017

Bikes for sale

Pre-registered bikes offer a great way to own a brand-new motorcycle with a large discount over the list price. These machines are often models that dealers may have bought in to meet sales targets and as such, they're left lying around their showrooms.

As they are already pre-registered though, you’ll technically be the second owner of the motorcycle as the dealer will have been the first, not a bad compromise for the sake of a bargain.

It’s always worth checking the classifieds for signs of a pre-registered bike as you can save a small fortune. Just because they’re new bikes, it doesn’t mean that you can’t try and haggle the price down further, remember these dealers don’t want the bikes lying around for months. So why not see if you can try and make a great deal that little bit sweeter.

We’ve had a look on MCN Bikes for Sale to see just what pre-registered bikes are currently available.

2016 Yamaha R1

List price £15,599
Pre-registered price £13,994

Saving £1605

It’s obscene that you can save a whopping £1,600 on the list price of a brand spanking new R1, for nothing other than the fact that the dealer already owns the bike. A bargain if you’re in the market for a new litre sportsbike.

2016 MV-Agusta Brutale 1090

List price £11,699
Pre-registered price £9,499

Saving £2,200

There’s an absolutely massive saving to be had on this beautiful MV. If you’re after Italian exotica at a fraction of the price then you really needn’t look any further than this bike. It was registered in December of last year too, so there’s every chance you might be able to haggle this price a little lower.

2016 Ducati Multistrada 1200

List price £13,795
Pre-registered price £11,999

Saving £1,796 

You’d be a bit daft not to consider this bike if you’re in the market for a new Multistrada. The price saving on this pre-registered 1200 only puts it £1000 more than a brand spanking new Multistrada 950. This bike was a display model that has never been ridden.

2016 Triumph Daytona 675

List price £9,600
Pre-registered price £8,299

Saving £1,301

The Daytona 675 has always been a popular middleweight sportsbike, with its beautiful 675cc triple delivering a fantastic blend of both power and torque. It handles fantastically and sounds beautiful. This one comes with a £1,300 saving on the list price and is available on finance to help make it even more affordable too.

2016 Honda CBR500R

List price £5,799
Pre-registered price £4,995

Saving £804

For those on an A2 license this is a tempting prospect. This pre-registered bike gives a saving of over £800 off the list price of a new machine. Not bad for a bike that offers a great step to newer or younger riders.

2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R

List price £9,149
Pre-registered price £7,999

Saving £1,150 

There isn’t much not to love about this tantalising offer. The ZX-6R hasn’t been updated for 2017 so what you get with this machine is a £1,150 saving on a brand-new Ninja, that’s also finished in the best KRT colour scheme too. Laguna Motorcycles is also offering finance on this bike with a £99 deposit too.

2016 Suzuki SV650

List price £5,699
Pre-registered price £4,799

Saving £900

The affordable SV650 just became even more so. After returning to Suzuki’s line-up last year, the SV became a brilliant entry middleweight option, ideal for those who were looking for a cheaper alternative to get around on or as an ideal step-up bike for newer riders.
