Super sports machines go missing for Autumn

This month we look at the fastest-selling used bike models above 125cc during the period from 1 August to 13 October, based on the median number of days the bikes were advertised on site. 

As we start to head towards the cold weather and dark nights of winter there is a total absence of super sports bikes in the top 30, but good representation from most other bike styles, with the cruiser category well represented by the Suzuki Intruder 1800 which heads up the list, plus further examples from Honda, Triumph and Kawasaki. The Honda CB900F Hornet also made a surprise reappearance, doubtless initiated by renewed interest from bikers following the recent launch of Honda’s new 750 version.

If we look at the average pricing of used bikes for the four weeks to 13 September compared with the same period 12 months ago, we can see an overall 3% increase, a slight softening in growth from the previous month. The sector with the highest growth in prices was bikes up to one year old, which increased by an average of 5%. Pricing growth has been driven by road-legal bikes with off-road bike prices remaining flat over the year.
