Bikes for sale

The R1-powered Yamaha MT-10 is finally here,bridging the gap between the ultra-fast and focused European super nakeds and the softer, more easy-going super nakeds from the rest of Japan.

There are plenty of Japanese super nakeds for sale at MCN Bike for Sale and we've listed some of the best below.

Yamaha YZF750

Honda CB1000R, £4,350

Designed with Europe in mind, using a retuned version of the 2007 FireBlade engine and with 2008 FireBlade forks and brakes, a beautiful single-sided swingarm and fabbo styling. The only thing the CB1000R lacks is a bit of soul and the noise you get from a Brutale or Speed Triple. But for ninety-nine per cent of the time it’s a better bike in every respect.

Kawasaki ZX-7R
Kawasaki Z1000, £7,999

The current Z1000 focuses on real world riding thrills rather than fantastic and often irrelevant performance figures and because it recognizes that honed throttle response, glitch-free engine delivery and refined, top rate suspension and brakes is far more rewarding with 140bhp than anything more ever can be if that level of control isn’t there. In short, if power is nothing without control, the Z1000 is the super naked that proves this best.

Ducati 749

Suzuki GSX-S1000, £7,499

It’s the naked GSX-R1000 K5 we all hoped it would be. The GSX-S1000 is fast, fun, agile and cheaper than its rivals. That iconic long-stroke engine has the K5’s distinctive growl and wide spread of power. Lacks punch compared to the current crop of headbanging super nakeds from Europe.
