Honda dominate used bike rostrum

This month we look at the fastest selling used bikes on Auto Trader, based on the median number of days each model was on site. The analysis looks at bikes sold between 1 November 2021 and 20 January 2022.

Honda’s range of 125cc bikes are proving to be incredibly desirable, with the Japanese giant’s quarter-litre machines taking up all the top four places, and another three A1-compliant bikes from the brand feature in the top 30. The list was topped by the NSS125A Forza scooter, which were selling in an average of just seven days.

With eight models making the top 30, Honda and Yamaha tied to be the most sought-after brand, with Suzuki the next most popular with five entries on the list. Triumph managed four, KTM and Kawasaki each had two and Keeway completed the roster with a single entry.

The average speed of sale overall for motorcycles on Auto Trader Bikes was 38 days during December 2021, whereas it was 43 days the same month in 2020, and 51 days two years back, so used bikes are selling faster than ever.

Due to this high level of demand, pricing remains very strong with the average price of a used bike listed at 5% more than December 2020 and 10% more than December 2019.  Volumes of used bikes listed on Auto Trader are 17% up on last year.
