Flitwick Yamaha’s Saul Towers reveals the type of bikes dealers are most keen to get in their showrooms: “We’re especially after good condition used adventure bikes, things like the Triumph Tiger 800s are always in particular demand. And sportsbikes too, although not quite as popular, good condition used examples are scarce – things like the 2009-onwards Yamaha R1 and R6 are popular, as well as the Suzuki GSX-R750.”
Data taken from MCN’S www.mcnbikesforsale.com site appears to back this up, with the most viewed models of this year being the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade, BMW R1200GS models, the Yamaha R1, and – perhaps surprisingly – Suzuki’s Hayabusa.
