Get the new Honda Fireblade or Suzuki GSX-R1000 for less than £150 a month
Both the Honda Fireblade and Suzuki GSX-R1000 have been given a new lease of life for 2017, with new base models and higher-spec models (the Fireblade SP and GSX-R1000R).
We've ridden both Fireblade models and the higher-spec GSX-R1000R and all models are a huge improvement on their previous incarnations, bringing them inline with the latest crop of superbikes such as the BMW S1000RR and Ducati 1299 Panigale.

But with the improved performance from both models also comes an increase in price. The new Fireblade SP costs £19,125, and the GSX-R1000R £16,099. But if you don't want the fancy models with top notch electronics the base models represent good value, and both are available for less than £150 a month.
