When will the bub­ble burst?

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Ps World -

There aren’t many tak­ers for ‘peds at five grand. But the fact peo­ple are chanc­ing ask­ing prices at that level tells us a lot about the per­ilous state of the mar­ket.

We make no bones about draw­ing some un­com­fort­able par­al­lels with the great clas­sic crash of 1990 when in­ter­est rates peaked and the whole mar­ket nose­dived. With an uncer­tain Brexit fu­ture still hang­ing in the bal­ance, the pound drag­ging along the bot­tom against the dol­lar, and no signs of real ac­tiv­ity in the econ­omy, all the mark­ers are in place for an­other does of re­al­ity. If you re­ally want to re­live your youth with a moped, bide your time. The mad­ness can­not last. Back to life... back to re­al­ity... and most likely very shortly too.

I want five grand for it
