Bikes selling fastest in west midlands

This month we look at the fastest-selling used bike models above 125cc during the period 1 May to 18 Aug 2022, and it’s encouraging to see such a wide variety of bike styles and ages that make up the top 30.

Topping the fastest selling model chart is a trio of middleweight machinery. Royal Enfield’s Meteor middleweight heads the list, closely followed by Suzuki’s Bandit 600, produced from 1995 to 2005, and the Triumph America, a cruiser version of the Bonneville which was available from 2002-2015. The America was the most popular of three cruiser models to make the top ten – the larger capacity Honda Rebel 1100 and the behemoth Suzuki Intruder 1800 also proving popular in the summer sunshine.

If we look at regional used motorcycle sales during July, bikes have shifted fastest in the West Midlands, with an average time on site of 14 days, with Wales in a very close second place with a 16-day average. The slowest selling region was the North East, where the median time to find a buyer was 28 days.

From a pricing perspective, the average price of a used bike in July was 8% higher than the same month last year, equating to an monetary increase of £546 over the 12 months. Nearly new bikes are certainly holding their value, with 31% of those advertised on Auto Trader Bikes priced within just 5% of the equivalent brand-new bike.
