Used bikes that offer cheap thrills

Published: 09 April 2017

Not everybody can afford the latest, greatest superbike, even on a PCP deal, but that doesn't mean we have to put up with dull bikes.

There are plenty of bikes in the used market that were incredibly exciting when tey were launched, and still raise our pulses today. Below are some of the most exciting bikes currently for sale at that don't cost the earth.


2002 Suzuki TL1000S, £2695

Suzuki's TL1000S was nicknamed the Widowmaker not long after its release due to a rear shock that wouold overheat, and a huge aount of torque which created a rather flighty front end. With the suspension sorted theyre great bike, and they're still a wild ride today but a little more practical than thoroughbred sportsbikes. Perhaps surprisingly the TL motor still lives on in the V-Strom 1000.

2010 Ducati Hypermotard 1100, £5695

With the Hypermotard Ducati combined the light weight and agile handling of a supermoto, with a 1078cc V-twin. The result is a bike that handles exceptionally well... if you can keep the front wheel on the ground. This is definitely one for all you wheelie fiends out there.

2004 Benelli TNT 1130 £4999

Probably not a bike you were expecting to see on this list, but when we first rode the TNT 1130 one of the best incarnations of a naked motorcycle. The 1130cc three-cylinder engine is more wheelie crazy than you'd expect, and the aluminium trellis frame provides great handling. It also looks nuts.

2009 KTM 950 Supermoto £5699

KTM ould struggle to make a boring bike if they tried, and the 950 Supermoto is one of the most hooligan-friendly bikes out there. In much the same vein as the above Ducati, it mixes light weight with a stonking V-twin engine to creat a bike that handles and wheelies incredibly well.
