We have just finished a massive survey of the top motorbikes to purchase this year here in the land down under and we are excited to share the findings. First of all, the survey was distributed to motorcycle experts and enthusiasts in and out of Ric Andrews.
So, without further ado, here is the list of the motorbikes you should consider buying this year.
The Honda CB400 is an ideal pick if you want great acceleration, power, suspension, handling, and comfort. It is also fuel-efficient with a good noise level. However, out of all of the Honda CB400 is mostly known for its build quality that screams durability and is easy to clean and maintain.
This motorcycle is said to be one of the best bikes for long drives and we are talking about thousands of kilometres. This is all possible because of its smooth 4-cylinder engine and smooth gearbox. If you want reliability for several years, then we suggest you go with this one.
Suzuki V-Strom 650
Just like with the Honda CB400, the Suzuki V-Strom 650 is all about build quality and power. But what makes this a great purchase is its affordability. It is mostly cheaper compared to other motorbikes with the same features. Right now, you can get one for $13,000 or a little less.
This is a really good choice, especially if you know how to handle and take care of your motorbikes. Suzuki V-Strom 650 is the more economical option for most people compared to other motorbikes in this list.
The older models of this beast are all great in terms of consistency and little by little adding new features and safety technologies.
It is a good all-around bike either for long drives or the daily commute to work.
Out of this list, this is surely our top pick. Mostly because it matches Honda CB400’s power as well as Suzuki V-Strom 650’s affordability. It is a bit more expensive but there isn’t much difference.
This model has quite a kick to it so one of its most important reminders is to not go full throttle, especially along a busy road. However, despite all of that, it’s over-all comfort and design gives riders a good grip and control when driving.
Another selling point is that the Yamaha MT-07 is ideal for newbie riders. It is easy to get the hand of its acceleration and handling.
So, these are the top picks according to our survey of more than 500 motorcycle experts all over Australia. Do you have a preference? Before buying one, make sure to read our ultimate guide when buying a motorcycle here in the land down under.
