MyMotorCycleCheck.com‘s Rob Hobson commented: “For our highly desirable model this month we’ve chosen the BMW R Nine T. From the moment it launched this bike was a hit with buyers in the growing naked Custom marketplace. With used examples still something of a rarity, values should hold up well. So long as you carry out a history check to ensure the one you’re looking at is what it claims to be – for instance, that it hasn’t been written-off and isn’t still on finance – then this is certainly a bike worth paying a premium for.

“In terms of bikes that hold their value, safe bets don’t come much safer than the Honda CBR 500 R. Condition and mileage will influence values on this popular bike, but clean undamaged low mileage examples are renowned for being a good used buy.
