The Magnificent 10 biking deals of the week.

What are the best motorcycle and kit deals and discounts available right now?

Continuing our regular weekly guides to current biking offers and bargains, we’ve been scouring the marketplace – so you don’t have to! And, we’re adding USED bikes, too!

 

Get £7001 off this Zero SR/S

Recent media reports have shown that sales of new electric bikes are currently struggling so it’s no great surprise to see some significant dealer discounts being offered – as is the case here. Bristol mega dealer Fowlers right now has a range of big price cuts on Zero models and, with the bikes originally being good but on the pricey side they’re worth looking at. One of the biggest is on the sports-tourer SR/S which is based on Zero’s most potent platform but also comes in useful, faired street guise. Best of all, though, with a full £7001 sliced off the price of this unsold 2023 model it takes its price down from the previous £23,995 to now just £16,994.

Save £3000 on KTM’s Super Duke GT

How about this for another great sports tourer that currently, thanks to a massive dealer discount, is being offered at a really tempting price? This time it’s KTM’s brilliant 1290 Super Duke GT, which we’ve seen with £3000 discounts before but that takes nothing away from the fact that it’s also a ballistic and practical 170bhp missile. This time it’s being offered by Norwich dealers Lings, is a brand new, 0-mile, unregistered 2024 example and that discount takes it down from the usual £18,999 to now just £15,999!

Save £2940 on this Harley-Davidson Fat Bob

How about this for another huge saving on one of the best Harley cruisers of all? The FXFBS Softail Fat Bob manages that rare trick of being both a stylish, laid-back Harley cruiser but also a decently performing (thanks to its 114ci Milwaukee Eight engine), fine handling (thanks to its good suspension and sportier wheel sizes and geometry) and reasonably practical, too. Best of all, though, this unsold 2023 Deluxe model at Warrs in London is currently being offered with a full£2940 discount taking its price down from £19,435 to now just £16,495.

Get £2004 off this Suzuki GSX-S1000GT

While finally for this week, how about one of the best all-rounders of recent years that’s now at an even more affordable price? Suzuki launched its faired GT version of its GSX-S1000 in 2022 as a brilliant, 150bhp rival to Kawasaki’s popular Ninja 1000 SX. It’s proved very successful, too, for its combination of performance, practicality and value. But northern dealer Robinsons are now making it even more tempting still by offering unsold 2023 examples in all colours with an extra £2000 off so taking its price down from £12,699, which was already reasonable, to now just £10,695, which surely makes it some kind of steal!

Get this Ducati Multistrada 1260 with £1902 off

With Ducati’s latest V4 version of its adventure sport Multistrada rightfully celebrated for its performance and versatility it’s easy to forget that its predecessor, the 1260cc V-twin version was already a brilliant bike – and also one that, thanks to this discount by leading used bike specialists Superbike Factory, can now be had for a song. This example in eye-catching ‘Pikes Peak’ colours, is on an 18-plate, has covered just 12,153 miles and has just been reduced by a whopping £1902 so taking its price down from the previous £14,986 to now just £13,084 – and it even comes with free delivery.

Save £1808 on this Ducati 1199 Panigale

Or if the Multistrada isn’t quite to your taste of Italian exotica, how about this, which is also now being offered with a big discount by used bike specialists Superbike Factory. It’s Ducati’s pre-V4 top spec superbike, the 1199 Panigale, this example is in glorious MotoGP replica livery (don't forget to inform your insurance provider about this), is in excellent condition with 23,217 miles under its wheels, is on a 62-plate and has just been reduced by a full £1808 taking its price down from the previous £9991 to now just £8183 which surely is some kind of steal. It even comes with free delivery.

Save £1003 on this Yamaha FJR1300

While finally for this week, let’s forget about all those fancy Ducatis and take a good look at one of the best big sports tourers of recent years. Yamaha’s four-cylinder, shaft drive FJR1300 proved hugely popular and successful for almost 20 years before being finally dropped around 2020 and is still missed to this day. Here, however, is a great, late, low mileage used example. It’s again being offered by used bike specialists Superbike Factory, is on a 68-plate, has covered just 9769 miles, has a very useful top box and has just had its price slashed by £1003 taking it down from £9486 to now just £8483 and, again, free delivery is thrown in.

Save 10% on Suzuki Live visitor tickets with Bikesocial Membership

Over the course of the two days there will be track sessions for Suzukis old and new, plus parades of very special race and road machinery. Suzuki will bring along a comprehensive display including their current range and vintage bikes such as RGs, RGVs, and GSX-Rs, and classic road bikes ranging from TLs to GTs and Bandits.

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

 

 

Get £8154 off this Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX

We’ve highlighted some of the massive dealer discounts being offered on Kawasaki’s phenomenal, supercharged sports tourer before – but never one as big as this. It’s currently being offered by Peterborough multi-franchise dealer Wheels and applies to the base SX (not SE) version of the 200bhp super-tourer. Although undeniably with a pricey RRP, the SX is also arguably one of the best applications of Kawasaki’s supercharged wonder, being practical and classy as well as whistlingly fast. This huge discount, however, also takes its price down from the usual £25,649 to a now very tempting £17,495.

Save £3501 on Aprilia’s RSV4 Factory

Another bike we’ve often seen at the receiving end of big dealer discounts. Aprilia’s top spec RSV4 Factory remains one of the best and most sophisticated road superbikes you can get, in Factory spec has semi-active Ohlins suspension and some of the best electronics around and now, thanks to this huge saving being offered by dealers SP Motorcycles, which sees a full £3501 sliced off this version in Speed White, sees its price slashed from the usual £23,500 to now just £19,999. Italian exotica doesn’t get much better – or, now, more affordable!

Get £1000 off this KTM 790 Duke

Finally for this week, how about something all round smaller, cheaper, more accessible – but still available with a significant dealer discount? Teasdale Motorcycles is currently having a sale on a raft of its range of bikes from KTM, to Aprilia and even Moto Guzzi, with prices slashed by up to £3000. But this £1000 discount on KTM’s already cut-price and lively 790 Duke stands out. That takes the fun-packed twin down from the previous £7999 to now just £6999 – that’s over £500 less than a Yamaha MT-07!

Get this BMW R1250GSA with £802 off

With BMW yet to unveil the new Adventure version of its all-new R1300GS, sales of the old 1250 version remain buoyant, which makes this discounted, low mileage examples at used bike specialists Superbike Factory a potential steal. It’s a 2021 example that has covered just 6076 miles, is in immaculate standard condition but comes with a useful top box and has just been reduced by £802 taking its price down from the previous £12,486 to now just £11,684 – and it even comes with free delivery!

It’s being offered on a great example of Yamaha’s now deleted (and much missed) FJR1300. The example concerned is on a 2010 plate and has covered 16,700 miles (which is nothing for this type of machine) and has just had its price reduced by £502 so taking it down from the previous £5686 to now just £5184, and, again, it comes with free delivery!

Save £201 on this BMW S1000RR

While finally for this week, how about this for a great dealer deal on a used example of one of the best superbikes of the last decade?

It’s on a 61 plate, has covered just 12,607 miles and has just had its price reduced by a useful £201 taking its ticket down from the previous £7284 to now just £7083, and, again, it’s comes with free delivery!
