Motorcycle insurance bargains: Derbi Mulhacen 659

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Derbi Mulhacen 659.     

Insurance group: 10
Used price: £2,900-£4,000
Engine: 659cc 4v dohc single 5 gears
Power: 48.6bhp
Top speed: 105mph
Weight: 160kg       

The Derbi Mulhacen is one of those bikes crafted for life in the city - punchy motor, narrow body, high bars and (crucially) uber-cool looks. If you're looking for a traffic-busting commuter with style, the Mulhacen fits the bill. 

True to its flat tracker inspiration the Derbi Mulhacen 659 is low, narrow and… hard. All of which makes it rapid when hooning down B-roads or darting through town traffic. But it's no distance machine - any more than 15 minutes on the Mulhacen and you'll feel it.

The Mulhacen is tasty from every angle - wavy discs, funky clocks, LED tail light, mental exhaust. When you take into account that it costs just a few hunded pounds more than rivals like the Yamaha MT-03 and Aprilia Pegaso, it starts to look like a bit of a bargain.
