WHAT WE'D BUY FOR... £4K

OLI RUSHBY BSB Re­porter YAMAHA MT-07

“I’d go for a used MT-07. You can pick one up with rel­a­tively low mileage for just over £4k, so it is slightly over bud­get, but it’s so much bike for the money! They are light and ag­ile with plenty of poke. It can be heaps of fun while also be­ing eco­nom­i­cal and prac­ti­cal. It’s a win/win re­ally and they tend to keep their value.

JAMES ARCHIBALD Ju­nior Web Pro­ducer SUZUKI GSX-R1000 K5

“With £4000 in my pocket I’d buy a 2005 Suzuki GSX-R1000 K5, no ques­tion! It’s the best bike from the time – be­fore elec­tronic wizardry took over. I’ve wanted one for ab­so­lutely ages! The prob­lem though is that they keep in­creas­ing in value and are get­ting rarer, which means they keep get­ting fur­ther out of my reach.”

MARIA VAL­LAHIS, On­line Ed­i­tor KAWASAKI ZX-6R

“I’d go for a Kawasaki ZX-6R – prefer­ably a 2003 to 2009 model – sim­ply be­cause they’re nice to look at and of­fer de­cent enough power for a new rider like my­self, who is des­per­ate for a lit­tle more grunt. Af­ter hav­ing a browse on MCN Bikes for Sale, you can nab your­self a tidy one with just un­der 20,000 miles for un­der £4k.”
