Only two sports bikes make the top 30

We are now nicely into the summer and used bikes on Auto Trader are moving on very quickly. This month we look at the fastest-selling used bikes between 1 April to 12 July with a capacity above 125cc, based on the median days on site.

We have a wide variety of bike styles, including adventure, cruiser, naked and some off-road, making up the top 30, which is headed up by the ever-popular Triumph Tiger 900, currently taking just seven days to sell on average. Sports bikes are represented just twice – by the middleweight Honda CB650R and Ducati Panigale V2.

Market Insight is a tool available to all trade customers through our Dealer Portal, and if we look at the data for the last four weeks (14 June to 11 July), we can see that demand for bikes is up 7% in the same period versus the prior year. In comparison, the number of used bike adverts listed is up by 5%.

It’s also interesting to look at the market for electric bikes, where interest is up 41%, and the number of adverts has dropped by 6%. Presumably, this is due to the significant increase in demand resulting in a lot of purchases!
Analysing pricing data over the same period shows the average used bike to be priced 4% higher than 12 months ago.
