Suzuki VX800

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Special Build of the Year 2018 -

1990-1996 805cc liq­uid-cooled, sohc, 4v, 45-de­gree V-twin, 61bhp, 213kg

What is it? It’s doubt­ful even the VX800 knows what it is – a cruiser? Street bike? Who knows? Why so odd? Fit­ting a cruiser lump into a street bike(ish) pack­age with lazy steer­ing and shaft-drive isn’t a great recipe. But the VX was part of Suzuki’s range for six years – in the UK.

Why you want one: If you want to, ahem... cruise, with­out all the bag­gage of ban­danas and tassled chaps the VX makes a lot of sense in its mixed up, mud­dled up fash­ion.

Val­ues: £1400-£2000
