Deals of the Week - 5 August 2022_01


Save £2100 on Kawasaki’s W800 Café

Kawasaki’s cute W650, then, later, W800, was the original 1960s style retro ‘British’ twin, predating even the original Triumph Bonneville 800. With lots of neat detailing and easy manners it was a charming Sunday run-around. The later, enlarged W800 was better still, with more, power (47bhp), if a little expensive, while it was updated again (to meet Euro emissions regs) in 2019 when it was offered in both Street and, here, faired Café (racer) form with the only real downside being its steep c.£8600 new price, putting it well above the equivalent Triumph or Royal Enfield. Until now. This discounted, 0-mile, 2020 example (it was deleted in 2022 as it can’t meet Euro5) at dealers 5Ways takes its ticket down from £9099 to just £6999, a saving of a whopping £2100. Yes, it’s a pre-reg with a Sept 2020 plate, but that price means it’s now over £1600 less than the cheapest Bonneville, the Speed Twin, and just £500 more than the similar performing Enfield Continental GT but with, in our view, significantly better quality. Makes you think…



Deals of the Week - 5 August 2022_03


Save £1400 on Aprilia’s RSV4 1100 Factory

Yes, Aprilias regularly crop up in our deals, it’s just how the Italian company operates. But when it’s a deal involving a huge £1400 discount and, on a bike, – the RSV4 Factory – which, thanks to its top spec cycle parts, humungous performance and Italian allure remains among the very best superbikes anywhere, it’s not to be dismissed. It’s currently being offered by official North Yorkshire dealers Teasdale Motorcycles and means the price of the Factory in either ‘Aprilia Black’ or ‘Ultra Dark’ comes down from its usual £23,000 to a far more palatable £21,600. Get one while you can…



Deals of the Week - 5 August 2022_04


Get £1300 off Indian’s FTR 1200

In case you’d missed it – which is entirely possible as upstart US brand Indian continues to ‘fly under the radar’ slightly, particularly here in the UK – the flat track-inspired, Scout based FTR is one of the best (and most fun) nakeds around thanks to its combination of Ducati Monster-reminding, ‘Spaghetti Western’ character, excellent handling, punchy 118bhp V-twin performance and individuality. On top of that, three different specs (stock, S and R Carbon) meant there were prices to suit all and a 2021 update, with smoothed out delivery, a little extra power and 17inch, rather than the previous 18inch wheels for better handling and tyre choice, made it even better yet. Best of all, though, dealers Motorcycle World are currently offering a black, base version with a full £1300 discount taking its price from a heady £12,295 down to just £10,995, or pretty much Yamaha MT-09 SP money – but hurry, it’s only being offered until August 10.



Deals of the Week - 5 August 2022_05


Save £601 on a Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber

Italian legends Moto Guzzi have a long history of being a bit ‘hit and miss’ with their characteristic transverse V-twins, as the recent V9 Bobber proves. It has one of the best versions of the V-twin engine (so good in fact that it’s now also being used in the V7 roadster and 850TT retro/trailie) but in a semi-cruiser, supposedly ‘bobber’, fat tyred chassis that at best doesn’t really convince and, at worst, is crude and ugly. Which is probably why it’s currently being offered with a full £601 off, taking its price down from £9600 to just £8999, by multi-franchise dealer Colchester Kawasaki. At that price, you just might…



Deals of the Week - 5 August 2022_07


Save £1105 on this 2015 BMW R1200GS

How about this for a win-win on a used bike? It’s a discount on a later 2015 version of the original, class-dominating BMW R1200GS LC; it’s completely stock so hasn’t been messed about with; is in immaculate standard condition with just over a negligible 11,000 miles on its clock; comes in arguably the best colour of all (metallic grey) AND, best of all, has now been discounted by dealers Superbike Factory by a whopping £1105 taking its price down to just £8186 from its previous £9291. That’s right, £8186, or less than a Tracer 7, for arguably the best adventure bike of all. What’s not to like?



Deals of the Week - 5 August 2022_09


Get this Ducati 1260 Multistrada Enduro with £905 off

Yes, we all know how good Ducati’s latest V4 Multistrada is with its radar and everything, but it’s also made us forget a little bit about how good the preceding V-twin was, too, which leads to the potential of great deals on used examples. So how about this? It’s a late, 2019 version of the stonking, more off-road credible Enduro version with wire wheels, longer suspension, dual swing-arm etc, and has just been discounted by a further £905 by Superbike Factory taking its price down to just £9886 – which, when you consider that just three years ago it was nudging £18K is surely some kind of steal. Yes, it’s showing slightly higher mileage, at around 12,000 and yes, too, I’d want to peel off some of those stickers but it’s in good nick, is a cracking bike if you’ve a long enough inside leg and even comes with a useful top box.



Deals of the Week - 5 August 2022_11


Save £805 on this low mileage Triumph Tiger 1050 Sport

Another often overlooked, underestimated bike that can be cracking value as a used option. Triumph’s 1050 Tiger was always basically a taller, more upright, and practical version of the British firm’s best-selling Speed Triple super naked, so it’s a slight surprise it’s now deleted. The last Sport version, from 2013, was significantly updated and refined all round and had a useful mix of a real world 123bhp, decent handling, pleasing manners and reasonable value before being deleted in 2021. All of which makes this low mileage (5641) 2016 example complete with useful top box a cracking value used buy – especially as dealers Superbike Factory have just reduced its price by a further £805 to just £6686 – that’s over two grand less than a new Tiger 660 Sport!

Here are last week's offers, in case you missed them...


BikeSocial Deals of the Week - 29 July 22_01


Save £1500 on Honda’s CB1000R+

Of all the superb super nakeds out there, Honda’s latest CB1000R is one of the best – and most overlooked, which is why this deal at Bransons in Yeovil stands out. It’s for the accessorised CB1000R+ version, complete with quickshifter, heated grips, brushed aluminium front mudguard and rear hugger panels, a fly screen, single seat cowl and radiator grill with CB1000R logo, all of which is on top of the classy, understated and superbly accomplished base bike which boasts 143 beefy, smooth bhp, immaculate manners and impressive spec and, with a £500 Honda finance deposit contribution plus a further £1000 from Bransons themselves, effectively takes its price down to just £11,599, which is almost GSX-S1000 money…



BikeSocial Deals of the Week - 29 July 22_02


Save £1300 on a Suzuki V-Strom 1050XT

Just in case you didn’t already think Suzuki’s latest, updated, V-Strom 1050XT was one of the best value adventure all-rounders around, Peterborough dealers have slashed a further £1300 off both the higher spec XT version pictured (complete with wire wheels, hand guards, bash plate, adjustable screen and seat and more) AND the fully-loaded ‘Tourer’ version, which comes with three-box aluminium luggage, taking their prices down to just £10,995 and £12,295 respectively. All colours are available, too, which puts the cherry on top.



BikeSocial Deals of the Week - 29 July 22_03


Get £800 off Husqvarna’s Svartpilen 125

One of the best and certainly coolest 125s of all also becomes a bargain thanks to this deal at Fowlers of Bristol. The huge, multi-franchise dealer is currently offering the bike with £800 off which, considering it’s based on the KTM Duke 125 means it’s already one of the best performing A1 machines while, with scrambler Svartpilen styling makes it one of the most fun and best-looking as well. Usually, at £4499, it’s also one of the most expensive 125s, too, but not with this deal which takes this brand new 2021 example down to just £3699 –although you do have to look for it on Fowlers' website as it’s misfiled among Piaggio’s scooters!



BikeSocial Deals of the Week - 29 July 22_04


Save £700 on a Kawasaki Versys 650

Another bike that was already a decent value all-rounder but now, thanks to a special dealer discount, is surely some kind of steal. The bike concerned is the latest, 2022 version of Kawasaki’s parallel-twin powered Versys 650 which in stock, base trim currently retails from £8199 – a great price for an engaging and versatile 67bhp machine that really can do it all. Dealers Northampton Moto, however, are currently slicing a further £700 off taking its price down to just £7499 which is a full £500 less than even Suzuki’s V-Strom 650!



BikeSocial Deals of the Week - 29 July 22_05


Save £504 on this Ducati Monster 1200

Now discontinued, the final generation Ducati 1200 Monster, whether in stock or higher spec S forms, was arguably the best Ducati Monster of all, with bags of punchy power, lots of electronics, the latest TFT dash and quality cycle parts, which means low mileage used examples can be prized. So this low mileage 5900-mile 2016 example which has just been discounted by a further £504 at dealers Superbike Factory, taking its price down to just £7887 – or MT-07 money – is tempting indeed. It has a couple of minor cosmetic issues (for example a peeling sticker) which are easily remedied but on the plus side it’s also virtually stock apart from the addition of a useful fly screen.



BikeSocial Deals of the Week - 29 July 22_06


Get this BMW R1250RT with £405 off

Yes, we did feature a discounted example of BMW’s brilliant boxer tourer, the R1250RT, here last week but here’s another offer that’s so good we had to include it here. It’s for a 2020 example of the ‘last generation’ RT which has the latest ‘ShiftCam’ engine (but not the 2021 facelift and big TFT dash), is this time in grey with a useful matching top box and has only covered 2472 miles, which means it’s virtually as new. But at this price at Superbike Factory, with a further £405 taking its price down to just £13,886, it’s nearly two grand less than the price of even the most basic new ones.



BikeSocial Deals of the Week - 29 July 22_07


Save £405 on this low mileage Suzuki V-Strom 1000

Another tempting cut price used deal on a bike that’s already considered something of a bargain. The ‘last generation’ Suzuki V-Strom 1000 may now have been replaced by the updated, facelifted 1050 version but in most practical senses is virtually identical. On top of that, this example at Superbike Factory, is a 2019 example showing just 2347 so is virtually as new, anyway. It also comes with a couple of useful extras, namely a top box and tank bag. Best of all, though, this further price reduction takes it down from an already bargain £7391 to just £6986 – that makes it a helluva lot of versatile all-rounder for very little money.



BikeSocial Deals of the Week - 29 July 22_08

Exclusive 10% additional discount on all disc locks at Sportsbikeshop for BikeSocial members until the end of July

We have teamed up with Sportsbikeshop to offer BikeSocial members some fantastic additional discounts through our new BikeSocial Shop.

Disc locks are the simplest and most convenient way to make your bike less attractive to thieves when you are out and about. Far lighter than a heavy-duty chain and lock set, a disc lock will generally slip neatly into an underseat storage area ready to be called into action when you park up and go for a wander around. Costing from just £9.99 to £119.99, Sportsbikeshop sell a huge range of disc locks with some even including a built-in alarm for added security and Bike Social members can take advantage of our exclusive 10% discount code to save even more cash. And remember, the code is in addition to any existing discount, so the savings just keep on building up.

As a final thought, if the lock you choose doesn’t come with a lanyard to remind you it is fitted, Sportsbikeshop sell one as an accessory for just £3.60 - a small outlay that could save you from an embarrassing, and costly, carpark incident...

Check out all the other deals on offer at Sportsbikeshop alongside this one in the rewards section of our website.
