It might not feel like it, but we’re on the cusp of the new biking season. Over the next four weeks we’ll (hopefully) see the weather turn, the nights get shorter and things start to get warmer. That means buying a new bike returns to the front of many people’s minds. But it is still a buyer’s market right now and some dealers are willing to offload used stock cheaper as people trade in their bikes for the March 19-plate registration period.
We had a wonderful time compiling our Top 20 used bike feature and to be honest, I want almost every bike we featured. Right now my faves are a Honda VFR800 for its bulletproof powerplant and mile-crunching ability, a 2015 R1 for the noise it makes and a Yamaha MT-07 for the sheer sense of fun they bring. You’ll get all the info you need to buy a great example of any of them.
