Used bike spotlight: Limited editions

1 of 1

Last week, Yamaha revealed a special edition R1 in Kenny Roberts yellow speed block colours to celebrate their 60th anniversary. The new bike will cost £15,749 and will come with an Akropovic slip-on exhaust.

It's certainly one of the better official limited edition bikes produced over the years, band if standard editions aren't your thing, we've found some of the best special edition models currently up for sale at

BMW's middleweight naked always seems to be off the radar - never garnering the same attention as the Triumph Street Triple or other bikes in the class. Despite that's it's a good bike, with a strong, usable engine. This Chris Pfeiffer edition looks much cooler than the standard bike - especially with the odd wheels - and even comes with an Akrapovic exhaust.


Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade
In 2014 Honda only entered select rounds of the British Superbike championship, and the urban tiger paint scheme was just one of the paint schemes they used. The cheme was available on the Fireblade in 1994, and has gone on to become a cult classic. The 2014 BSB race bike proved so popular, Honda released it as an official limited edition.


Kawasaki ZX-10R
In 2013, Tom Sykes became the first Kawasaki rider in 20 years to win the World Superbike championship after winning nine out of the 27 races. To celebrate the occasion, Kawasaki UK produced 25 'World Champion Edition' ZX-10Rs. The bikes come with a replica paint job, Leo Vince exhaust, and laser-etched plaque to prove authenticity.


Yamaha R1
Only three years old, this red and white speed block paint scheme was produced to celebrate 50 years of Yamaha competing in MotoGP. The design itself was inspired by the Yamaha MotoGP team's special livery at the 2011 Assen MotoGP.
