Bikes for sale

Not all exciting bikes have to break the bank, there are plenty of bikes out there that will provide you with plenty of thrills - even some unlikely bikes which many experienced riders would dismiss as novice bikes.

Below are some of our favourite cheap, grin-inducing bikes on


Suzuki SV650

Think the venerable SV650 is just  bike for new riders or commuters? Wrong. The SV makes a great miniature sportsbike, with just enough power to have fun. There's a reason they're so popular in the Minitwin race series. 

Kawasaki ZX-10R

This is a bike you'd expect to be associated with thrills. The first generation ZX-10R is a wild ride - especially on bumpy roads - due to its huge power and lack of weight. Superb on the track but a bit of a handful on the road.

KTM 690 Duke

This generation KTM Duke is slightly easier to use than previous models, but it's still a cracking bike that you can't fail to have fun on. A pure, no-nonsense bike at home down twisty back roads.

Triumph Street Triple

Light, fast and agile, the 675cc Street Triple was a revelation when it was released in 2007. The howling three-cylinder motor provides a good spread of useable torque for the road and the handling is excellent.
