Honda CBR900RR Fire­blade 1995-1996

893cc, 16v, dohc, in­line-four Sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion Fox-eye only just lags be­hind the orig­i­nal in ap­peal. With 124bhp and ex­tra grunt it’s quicker than the YZF and more durably built. Grab one be­fore prices get silly.

Value now: £2300-£3600

Suzuki GSX-R750W 1992-1996

749cc, 16v, dohc, in­line-four De­cent, us­able road bike, very much old school and as brash and gar­ish as ’90s bikes got. No ZXR/BLADE/YZF beater on track, but still has a strong ap­peal all its own. One for the GSX-R diehards.

Value now: £1200-£4000

Kawasaki ZX-7R 1996-2003

748cc, 16v, dohc, in­line-four Suc­ces­sor to ZXR with 10bhp more. Ar­rival of ’98 R1 quickly made it ob­so­lete but as a carb-fed ’90s su­per­bike it’s a hand­some, durable, pop­u­lar clas­sic.

Value now: £1800-£3000
