  • HONDA CB250 (1992-2003)

    MCN rating
    3 out of 5 (3/5)
    8 owners' rating
    4.5 out of 5 (4.5/5)

    Trusted, reliable and entirely without pretence

  • SUZUKI GSX1300R HAYABUSA (2021-on)

    MCN rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)

    It may be a child of the 90s at heart, but even by today’s standards the new third generation Busa feels like a spaceship

  • SUZUKI M800 INTRUDER (2001-2012)

    MCN rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)
    5 owners' rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)

    Strong engine, great styling and a decent ride add up to a worthwhile competitor

  • KAWASAKI NINJA 400 (2018-on)

    MCN rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)
    5 owners' rating
    4.6 out of 5 (4.6/5)

    Kawasaki’s Ninja 400 is an A2 licence favourite. It’s easy to get on with, ultra-reliable and exciting, but with a true 119mph top speed, 200-mile tank range, genuine big-bike character and comfort, it can be enjoyed by more experienced riders and commute

  • BMW S1000RR (2019-on)

    MCN rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)
    2 owners' rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    Takes the superbike game to the next level

  • INDIAN CHIEFTAIN (2014-on)

    MCN rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)

    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    The heritage and imposing styling makes a Harley look almost meek when compared.

  • HONDA CBR650R (2019-on)

    MCN rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)
    10 owners' rating
    4.7 out of 5 (4.7/5)

    Honda’s CBR650R is the go-to supersport bike for the real world. It’s handles sweetly, looks just like a Fireblade and recording a true top speed of 138mph on MCN’s test track it’s just 1mph slower than an Aprilia RS660

  • BMW M1000RR (2021-on)

    MCN rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)

    It's insanely quick but not worth paying the extra over an S1000RR

  • DUCATI PANIGALE V4R (2019-on)

    Overall owners' rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    Proper focused Superbike for fast weekend B-roads, track days or racing but refined enough to pop to the shops on it. Mind blowing after 13k revs.

  • BMW K1200S (2004-2008)

    Overall owners' rating
    3 out of 5 (3/5)

    Reliability issues earlier on as documented and expense of repairThis last year bike had been fine New Battery .... new back tyre That’s it ... MOT pass ok

  • HONDA CRF1100L AFRICA TWIN (2020-on)

    Overall owners' rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    I have always liked a upright riding position, had numerous bikes then bought a new 2016 versys 1000 After 2 trips to Spain in 2 years, I fancied something different, so I traded in for a 2016 kawasaki GTR1400. Again it went abroad twice, then covid hit last year & cancelled the trips. This year...

  • TRIUMPH THUNDERBIRD 900 (1993-2003)

    Overall owners' rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    I have owned this bike for 18 years and it has never let me down. still looks and sounds great. I do need to use it more(also have an explorer 1200) don't leave too much fuel in if not using often as modern fuel seems to go off very quick.

  • SUZUKI GS500 (1989-2008)

    Overall owners' rating
    4 out of 5 (4/5)

    Rock solid almost literally bullet proof engine. Exterior needs "babying" and prone to rust. Also a tiny bit cold blooded until a warmup.

  • KAWASAKI Z900 (2020-on)

    Overall owners' rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    Fantastic bike. Superb handling and looks brilliant with the white and black paint scheme with green wheels and frame. For the money (approximately £9,000 I cannot fault it and have rode many alternatives. They are still made in Japan and have extremely good build quality. Engine is super smooth...

  • BMW S1000R (2014-on)

    Overall owners' rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    Fast, very light and easy to ride, perfect for a ageing sports bike rider. Bars are wide and mine has bar risers making it easy to manoeuvre. I’m 5’8” and it fits me perfectly with the standard seat. The engine is fantastic, so much power and torque, quick shifter is a great extra, shame on the...

  • SUZUKI GSX1400 (2001-2006)

  • SUZUKI SV650 (1999-2015)

    Overall owners' rating
    5 out of 5 (5/5)

    Bought it for 1000 euro's. Mods YSS Shock, front wheel 120/70 instead of 120/60,stronger front forks. Maybe the most entertaining bike i ever owned (and i had lots of very expensive and powerful bikes).
