Bikes for sale

There are over 14,000 bikes for sale on our site, so you're sure to find something that meets your wants and needs. These are the three bikes catching the eyes of some of our staff members this week.


BMW R1200GS Adventure £14,995 

Seller says:

“BMW R 1200 GS Adventure Triple Black. The bike was supplied new in September 2016 to who one former keeper. Unfortunately, due to ill-health the owner is not able to ride the bike at present and as such is offered for sale. Being the Triple Black the bike is highly desirable and comes with options such as Keyless Ride and Gear Shift Assist. Bike will be sold with the balance of the manufactures warranty.” 

James Archibald, Web Producer says:

“I ran the F800GS as a longtermer last year and got bitten by the adventure bike bug, badly. Now all I want to do is go out and explore and let’s face it, the R1200GS Adventure is a prime candidate when it comes to globetrotting. Its all-round versatility too means that it isn’t lacking and I can’t think of many other bikes that are quite so good at everything. It may be expensive but believe me, it’s worth it.”

Honda VFR800 £3,495

Seller says:

“Blue, 5+ owners, In the late 90's the old VFR800 was a great bike but needed updating. Its replacement, the Honda VFR800 V-Tec, is a beautiful thing and rides, goes and handles superbly too. The Honda VFR800 offers a plusher ride than average. Like VFRs of old, the Honda VFR800 V-Tec motor simply gets on with the job, but is deceptively quick while it does it. This one comes with panniers, heated grips, seat cowl, and full service history. There are some scratches on the panniers.” 

Joe Dick, Staff Photographer says:

“Since I can remember, the bark of a V4 Honda has stayed with me as one of the best sounding motors ever made. Bolt it to 2 wheels, a comfy seat and some luggage boxes and you'll have smiles for miles. For me, practicality combined with comfort and a great soundtrack is the perfect buy, and what's not to love here. Low mileage, clean and well priced with the sharp looks of the superb VFR800, this would be the one I'd go for.”

KTM 690 Enduro £6,499

Seller says:

“Immaculate bike with only 226 miles on the clock, massive saving, ABS brakes, handguards. An ideal on/off roader, call for details.”

Andy Davidson, Staff Writer says:

"KTM’s 690 Enduro is an absolute weapon. I fell in love with the lethal orange beast a few years back on the Hard Alpi Tour – a 24-hour rally through the Alps. As a three man MCN team, we took three bikes to Italy and all fought over the keys to the KTM. Flying over the Italian and French mountains on the fastest single-cylinder motorcycle in the world is epic. It handles like an enduro bike on steroids in the rough stuff. And on tarmac it transforms into a testosterone dripping supermoto. There was another British team on the rally who were all using 690s too. They had turned theirs into adventure bikes with bigger tanks and other modifications and rode them over from the UK, proving the bike’s versatility. It’s a do-it-all, adrenaline fuelled beast and I want one."

The Hard Alpi Tour was no match for the 690 Enduro
