Here's just a few of the fantastic modern classic machines available this week:         

BMW K1

1990 BMW K1 - £3600
Radically aerodynamic uber sports tourer based on K100 running gear. Wacky, practical and collectable.
We say: What were BMW thinking? Still, good original ones like this now appreciating.

 

Triumph Daytona 1000

1991 Triumph Daytona 1000 - £1400
First generation Hinckley sportster was among weakest and shortest lived of reborn Triumph’s first bikes…
We say: …which makes it among rarest today too. Interesting and OK, but lacks class of later triples.

 

Kawasaki Z1300

1981 Kawasaki Z1300 - £4300
Late ‘70s Honda CBX-rivalling six-cylinder. Massive and clever (early liquid-cooling, fuel injection and shaft drive).
We say: Never had cache or class of Honda, but today much cheaper. Developing a following.

 

Suzuki GSX-R1000

2007 Suzuki GSX-R1000K7 - £11,995
One off special built by Suzuki GB for Kevin Schwantz to ride at 2007 TT.  
We say: No traditional classic, and price debateable, but undoubtedly unique.
