Ride to Work week has got us thinking about bikes that would be fairly sensible choices if you were going to ride every day. Of course, you can ride whatever you want, in whatever weather and for any purpose, but these bikes have been renown for either doing a bit of everything, or hitting the right budget in terms of owning and running.
So, if you’re looking for something to keep your pride and joy in good nick, or are just after a cost-effective way to get around then be sure to check out these machines.
Kawasaki ER-6F £2199
“Two local owners & 13,500 miles. Good post-test bike or commuter.”
Honda VFR800 £2250
“This machine has sat in my shed for the last 2 years and only had the occasional ride out. I bought it from Lings of Ipswich in 2007 and have only ridden 5k on it. The value of these bikes seems to remain constant, however my daughter requires a car and something has to give. It has a Motad stainless header set which cost £250, a hugger on the rear, and a set of bolts for the fairings. I have a bunch of old mots and a background search certificate. I didn't mot it every year just when required. it requires one now. I would say it needs new front rubber. I have the original warranty and service book. Also available is a Givi rack by separate sale.”
BMW R1200GS £4995
“This 2005 BMW R1200GS comes in blue with 25,475 miles on the clock. It will come fully serviced with 12 month MOT. It’s a great value, long distance tourer and comes with both keys, heated grips, engine bars and a 3-month warranty.”
Yamaha MT-09 Tracer £7195
“Very clean example fitted with detachable Yamaha panniers and comfort gel seats front and rear. Comes with all handbooks, spare keys and full service history. Nationwide delivery available - please call for a quote. Unless otherwise stated, all our used bikes are HPI clear and come fully prepared, MOT'd and warranted.”
“Honda CB125F in yellow with just one owner from new. Bike comes with Honda warranty until 29/04/2018 which also includes AA breakdown cover. It’s a fantastic first bike or commuter and returns well over 100mpg and comes with a gear indicator fitted as standard.”
Suzuki GSF1250S Bandit £3695
“Here we have Suzuki's big 1250cc workhorse, the ever popular GSF 1250 Bandit S, finished in metallic blue & completely un-molested which is quite rare. This bike has bags of torque and really allows you to pull out of any corner in virtually any gear. With an excellent seating position and risers in the bars you really can ride this one for hours. As standard, this model has Tokico brakes with ABS to ensure this thing stops as quickly and as safely as possible. It's hard to believe due to the great condition of this machine that it's covered 26,609 miles from new. The bike has had 1 former keeper on the log book so 2 owners total, which shows how good this bike has been, how looked after it has been and really how reliable too. If adventure bikes aren't your thing but you still want a big engine all-rounder then the Bandit is a definitely your next bike!”
Yamaha FZS1000 Fazer £2799
“Very smart, completely standard Fazer. It’s reliable and fantastic to ride and comes with all books, keys and history. The bike is very clean and will come with an MOT.”
