Bidding brisk at Peterborough super sale

The second Motorbike Super Sale of the year, at BCA Peterborough, was a near sell-out, say organisers, as buyers competed strongly both online and in the halls for 138 bikes, scooters and quadbikes.

With over 97% of the bikes on offer sold, there was considerable choice for trade and private buyers alike, with a wide selection of makes and models, including BMW, Ducati, Harley Davidson, Kawasaki, Triumph and Yamaha.  

With bidding fast and furious throughout the sale, turnover topped £500,000. However, in volume terms the 138 machines sold was not a BCA record, the best ever being 241 bikes sold on 24 February, 2017. No total take was disclosed for that sale. 

The highest price was £22,800 for a 2016 Harley-Davidson FLHT CUTG Triglide trike. Eleven Harleys sold, grossing £120,000, the average price being £10,909.

Star machines included the Triumph Tiger Explorer XC, realising £9100, while the Triumph Speed Triple sold for £6600 and a Yamaha YFM 700R quad achieved £7800.

Graham Sims, branch manager at BCA Peterborough, said: “This year’s second BCA Motorbike Super Sale attracted great interest on the day and bidding was brisk. Undoubtedly the wide selection of makes and models contributed to the sale’s success with something to suit every type of biker.”

For the first third of the year (Jan-Apr sales inclusive) BCA has sold 462 bikes, a high average for BCA.

The next BCA Motorbike Super Sale at Peterborough is scheduled for 30 June.
