Bikes for sale

It's hard to believe 2017 is almost over, and to wrap up the year we've put together a list of the 15 most popular bikes on MCN Bikes for Sale.

You probably won't be surprised to learn that popular models such as the Yamaha R1 and BMW R1200GS feature in the list, but there are a couple of surprising additions. Check them out below.

TOP STORIES

2011 Yamaha R1 £7999

MCN says

“The Yamaha R1 jumped straight to the top of the superbike class when it was released in 1998, and it's been among the front runners ever since, so it's no surprise to see it's one of the most popular bikes on MCN Bike for Sale. We chose this 2011 big bang R1 because we think it's great value for a fairly new superbike.”


2012 Honda Fireblade £6499

MCN says

“You could argue the Fireblade is the daddy of the modern sportsbike and they're hugely popular. The Fireblade has been left behind in recent years by more powerful and more advanced competition, but it's still an excellent road bike.”


2000 Suzuki Hayabusa £2850

MCN says

“The Hayabusa is as legendary as bikes come, so it's no surprise to find it in this list. This 2000 example has covered relatively few miles for such a capable mile muncher and looks in great condition.”


2011 BMW R1200GS £7995

MCN says

“The BMW GS shot to fame in 2004 when Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman used them for their Long Way Round adventure. Since then the BMW has been an ever present at the top of the best sellers list.”


2002 Honda Gold Wing £8999

MCN says

“We were a little surprised to see the Gold Wing on the list, but it's a worthy addition that provides plenty of comfort and luxury.”


2012 BMW S1000RR £9295

MCN says

“The BMW S1000RR is the bike responsible for bringing fancy electronics to the masses. The 2012 bike was an improvement on the original and kept it miles ahead of the competition at the time.”


2013 Triumph Bonneville T100 £5100

MCN says

“The Bonnie T100 is 865cc of retro, parallel twin loveliness. You can't help but smile when you ride it. Triumph's retro models are all excellent and the Bonneville is among the best.”


2009 Honda CBR600RR £5250

MCN says

“Supersport bikes have taken a sharp downturn in recent years, so it's nice to see the CBR600RR sneak in here. As supersport bikes go it's incredibly usable and well mannered.”


2003 Suzuki GSX-R750 £2895

MCN says

“Suzuki are the only manufacturer still making a 750cc sportsbike, and our Chief Road Tester Michael Neeves is a huge fan. He reckons they're the perfect compromise between a superbike and supersport.”


2016 BMW R1200GS Adventure £13995

MCN says

“The R1200GS Adventure rounds out the top 10. It's more off-road and adventure focussed than the standard GS and comes with wire-spoked wheels and a huge fuel tank.”



2017 Harley-Davidson Sportser 883 £6750

MCN says

“It feels like the Harley Sportster has been around forever, which is testament to its popularity. The Sportster is perhaps the best way into the Harley brand thanks to the low price, and they're effortlessly cool.”


2011 Yamaha R6 £6195

MCN says

“Yamaha's R6 has consistently been one of the sharpest supersport bikes around, and has a reputation as a fierce track bike. Few bikes are as track-ready as the R6.”


2017 Yamaha MT-07 £5899

MCN says

“Yamaha's MT-07 is one of the best value bikes available right now, so it's no surprise to see it on the list. It might be a cheap, small capacity bike, but it's great fun and handles incredibly well.”


2016 Triumph Rocket III £11999

MCN says

“A surprising entry that just sneaks onto the list, the Rocket III is a ridiculous motorcycle powered by a 2.3 litre engine. Despite its size it handles relatively well and of course it has bags of presence.”


2014 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy £10450

MCN says

“Ask a non-motorcyclist to draw a Harley and they'll probably draw something resembling the Fat Boy. It's the definitive Harley cruiser with bags of bad boy attitude.”
