The editors’ tops and flops
Review: used motorcycles

What happened in the used motorcycle market in 2016? The tops and flops of the MOTORRAD editors.

Klaus Herder

12/22/2016

Once a year, the used uncles of the MOTORRAD editorial team can get very personal. Then no in-depth viewing tips are required, then it is not about model maintenance measures or product recalls, and there are also no dealer interviews. Then it is only about what is otherwise only hidden among colleagues, what (brand) policy does not always have to be correct and what can and should polarize. In short: It’s about the tastes of the editors responsible for two-wheel scrap iron.

What is still missing in the collection?

Not as an end in itself, but as a motivational aid, so that you, dear reader, do exactly the same in the coming weeks of the largely passive motorcycling period. It is difficult to subjectively deal with the topic of used motorcycles, which is truly fascinating not only from a financial perspective. Think right now about which second-hand treasure you have always wanted to buy. Such an annual balance sheet is a great occasion for this. What fascinated you last year? What is still missing in the collection?

The trend of previous years has been confirmed

In order not to get bogged down in such considerations, however, it definitely helps to keep an eye on general market developments. Because what no longer sells new will not be in great demand when used – and is therefore a clear case for bargain hunters. In 2016, a trend from previous years was confirmed and even intensified in 2016: super sports cars, especially those in the 600 class, are dead on sale. And it doesn’t look much better with the 1000s either. The demographic development may be one of the reasons for this – motorcyclists in the over 40 league often just have less and less desire to romp around the area as stooped people. However, this does not rule out the fact that some senior citizens are now interested in a cheap racer as a third or seventh machine and that the now affordable childhood dream can finally be put in the garage.

Retro area runs wonderfully

In contrast to the athletes’ faction, what is still going well with new machines is the retro area. The really big hype about the BMW R nineT, Ducati Scrambler and Co. should be on the wane by now. What is now not on every first corner, but felt on every third corner, no longer arouses the desire as it did at the beginning. In addition, quite a few R nineT drivers have probably noticed that the part is a great eye-catcher, but at the latest when it is actually to be driven, a BMW R 1200 R from the same company can do everything, really everything much better. Effect for the used market: The zeitgeist BMW bestseller is now available as a used machine at reasonable prices and in sufficient numbers, which would have been unthinkable just a few months ago.

In the end, personal tops and flops count

So, and now you should take a closer look at what the used uncles Biebricher, Dentges, Herder and Lohse, reinforced by MOTORRAD Classic colleagues Eirich and Holzwarth, think of everything when they reflect on the 2016 used motorcycle year. And please: the bottom line is that these are all negligible individual opinions. In the end, what counts is your very own personal tops and flops!

Tops and flops by Markus Biebricher

Markus Biebricher, Head of Travel, 53 years and not really wise yet. Often looking for new ideals, restless in the field of tension between buying sensible and the dream bike forever and ever.

Yes, I admit it: I love the Honda brand. Legends such as CB 750, Bol d’Or, VFR, RC 30, Gold Wing, Africa Twin or Fireblade give you goose bumps. The mostly well-founded reputation of great reliability and good workmanship is not a sign of boring fulfillment of duty, but rather of a passionate love for the motorcycle. Incidentally, this is also appreciated by millions of Asians and South Americans, for whom small Hondas make life easier. Without grumbling, even if the everyday demands are unimaginable. Like my colleague Dentges, I am a wanderlust-driven long Lulatsch. Someone who therefore tends towards enduros and who has fulfilled the ultimate dream with the new Africa Twin. But that can’t be all. Since I got the Honda in 2003 CB 1300 was able to experience on a longer tour, I have never forgotten the advantages of thick four-cylinder with all the enthusiasm for two-cylinder. This incredibly cultivated push from idle speed.

With luck for 3,000 euros from 2003

This CB 1300 in red and white, reminiscent of the blessed Bol d’Or, whether naked or with a sexy half-shell. Clearly my dream used 2016! Was it even suitable for the handy Alpine King at MOTORRAD, right? The engine also looks like a cathedral of torque. Seriousness in every detail. With luck it goes for 3,000 euros from 2003, the predecessor models even cheaper. Will be more expensive for sure soon! Good, little-used 2012s already cost, still or again, a whopping 9000. Keyword good: If you want to set narrower financial priorities and are looking for a really ingenious all-purpose moped that was once the king of the Alps, please look at Suzuki. The V-Strom 650 has a fun, powerful V2 and drives so much better than the sum of its parts suggests. Fits long Lulatsche and can do everything except nasty terrain. A hot tip for drivers who strive for a lot of mopeds for little money and who also appreciate the inner values ​​of women in life.

Great driving characteristics and unsuccessful optics

Why is it still the most unattractive used car in 2016 for me? Because the driver’s eye is always there somewhere. Individual fate? But look: those fat cast wheels, this nasty exhaust, especially in the first generation! There is hardly any other motorcycle in which great driving characteristics and unsuccessful optics contrast so much! And then the name: What should flow there? Certainly not endorphins! Or is it? In any case, the headwind if you are cutting out stronger bikes with the V-Strom. With luck, from 2,200 euros for a passable ABS-less from 2004.

Thorsten Dentges tops and flops

Thorsten Dentges, advisor editor, 45 years old and 1.87 meters tall. He and his long legs have had great experiences with fun bikes for those who are reason-oriented since the late 1980s.

Occasionally long-legged motorcycle (re) beginners ask me what is the cheapest way to get started. Because for tall drivers over 1.85 meters, older mid-range road machines, which are offered cheaply on every corner, are usually not an option. You have to fold yourself up too much. I know the problem, I can only say: step length 92 centimeters. So far, I’ve always had a hot low-budget package tip ready for the Lulatsch among motorcyclists: Honda Dominator. The soft enduro, built from 1988 to 2000, is suitable as a fun bike for city and country roads, and even for longer solo tours.

Everything was great, including the price

The single cylinder is robust and solid, the slim silhouette and a manageable weight of less than 180 kilos ready to drive take all fears away for beginners. Everything was great, including the price. But unfortunately in the literal sense, because the prices have risen to barely comprehensible heights for some time. Three or four years ago you got a well-tended one Dominator with a few signs of use (so what?) and a good 40,000 kilometers (put it away easily) for 1,000 euros without any problems, there is now only core scrap. Sellers often ask twice as much for good goods. And more. Hello, are you still okay? That was (and is) a utility motorcycle! In the meantime, it’s actually pretty much worn out.

Low prices are only valid for years of construction 2007 to 2009

So: if you already have 2,000 euros in your hand, then please take a look to the left and right. For astonishingly low prices, there have recently also been great ones Kawasaki Versys. The two-cylinder engine is a) reliable and b) all in all very smooth, because 64 HP is released with a lot of pressure in the lower and middle speed range. Dominatrix (tor) can pack up. The Kawa can also travel better, it has ABS (be careful with imported machines, often not there!), And its consumption is modest with a good four liters. On the other hand, this bike does not skimp on “fun”. Easy handling, upright sitting position, long legs can be easily accommodated. Reasons for low Versys prices: First of all, the appearance – definitely not for everyone and certainly not for everyone. You have to like the panda bear look. Incidentally, the low prices are only valid for the years of construction 2007 to 2009. At that time, brand-new Versys were often knocked out for less than 6,000 euros, understandable that the snapper from then nowadays is passed on well and cheaply from second and third hand.

Top and flops from Gerhard Eirich

Gerhard Eirich, 52-year-old MOTORRAD Classic editor, appreciates the advantages of consistent, honest bikes over bloodless compromises. In his private life he tends to be three-cylinder, two- or four-stroke.

No, I’ve never crossed a desert on a motorcycle. But you don’t have to do that to be fascinated by the Honda Africa Twin and to find it de facto simply good. Right from the start I was a fan of the rally offshoot in the beautiful HRC paintwork, even if it couldn’t tear up trees as a 650. Your V2 was cultivated, undemanding and durable, comfort and long-distance suitability (range!) Are proverbial. Still, I’ve never owned one, only drove a buddy from time to time in the 1990s. But the new 1000 “monkey twin”, which I recently moved, will quite deliberately never come into my possession. A good motorcycle, no question about it, with power, injection and ABS and modern achievements. All well and right. And yet, almost 30 years after the first, I expected more. She didn’t inspire me, the spark didn’t jump out.

Bargain? Nothing!

On the other hand, when I see the old 650, my pulse beats even faster today. And the name Africa Twin, which has been brought back into the field of view of bikers by the new one, will also bring fans back into the saddle of the old one. The original Africa twin from 1988, now almost a real old-timer, has long been considered a sought-after cult bike with a significant increase in value. If you don’t have one yet, you will hardly find a bargain, really good copies of the Honda Africa Twin have long since cost from 3,000 euros upwards. And no – everything wasn’t better in the past. But some things had more charm, the fascination of the groundbreaking, here even a touch of adventure. Speaking of fascination: there are concepts that the world simply hasn’t been waiting for.

Neither a naked bike nor a tourer

“Crossover” models, woolly sows that neither lay eggs nor are wolfs in sheep’s clothing. With the Yamaha BT 1100 Bulldog tried Yamaha From the end of 1991 the balancing act between roadster and cruiser, or something like that, but two half-hearted concepts do not automatically result in a good one in the end. And, pardon Yamaha, the Bulldog was and is just ugly. By the way, it’s not just me who thinks. Seldom has it been less successful to bring different requirements under one roof. It is neither a pounding naked bike nor a comfortable tourer or even a handy country road racer – too heavy, too weak, too spongy. Therefore, the mix of ex-chopper engine and street cruiser chassis has never really sold well and is mostly a slow-moving even used today. Bad luck for those who want to get rid of one, good for those who are actually looking for one. The price is dictated by the moderate demand, finding a cheap one shouldn’t be too difficult.

Tops and flops from Klaus Herder

Klaus Herder, 54-year-old advisor editor, usually drives “what has to go” privately. Both a couple of Harley V-Rods and various two-valve boxers were already part of his “collection of horror”.

You don’t have to understand that: Of all things, the device with the – by far – most modern Harley engine (water cooling, four-valve engine, overhead camshafts) is thrown out of the program by the Americans with the now-coming Euro 4 reason. V-Rod Muscle and Night Rod Special can still be found in the 2017 price list, but are only sold as remnants. The puristic V-Rod original has been history since 2013. Perhaps the whole Euro fuss is just a welcome excuse to finally transport the VRSC series, which was never particularly successful in the most important Harley market, the domestic one, to the eternal hunting grounds. But as is often the case, and almost always with Harley, when something is no longer available, it is suddenly particularly popular. For me that does Harley-Davidson V-Rod, specifically the VRSCA, for my used top model in 2016.

It never gets cheaper

What encourages me in this is the look into the used purchase advice that I had already given in MOTORRAD 1/2012 and the comparison of the prices mentioned at that time with the current prices; because it is noticeable that the baby has in the meantime become even older, but by no means cheaper as a used one. But on the contrary. I’m pretty sure it won’t get cheaper, and 2016 should be the turning point. Far from all purely monetary considerations, there are also good technical-emotional reasons to grab the (used) V-Rod now, of all times. The combination of modern technology and convincing driving performance with a robust character and a brutal appearance is still free from all driver assistance stuff and driving modes tinnef. Okay, ABS has been standard since 2009, but that’s okay. So please do not be surprised if I call you in the foreseeable future and ask for the used and outrageously cheap one Harley-Davidson V-Rod question.

BMW R 80 doesn’t have to be anymore for the time being

On the other hand, I will definitely not try to buy a used BMW R 80 (or R 65 or R 100/7 etc. pp.) For a long time. I just can’t see Zossen anymore, and the poor rubber cow is only partly to blame for that. Rather, I am annoyed by the (new) two-valve environment, in which “trendsetters” with heavy facial hair, cash racks, men’s buns and lumberjack shirts consider it totally hip and extremely individual to put a well-worn street boxer on TKC 80 studded tires , to equip with a wide handlebar and a single seat and to sell the whole thing as incredibly innovative. Please don’t get me wrong. I don’t care what is privately pieced together in backyards and garages, but if the 35th BMW two-valve bopper-on-studded tire clone is jazzed up at trade fairs or meetings as a paragon of creative work, I can also rave about it in public. The hype surrounding the boxers, who were not exactly high-flyers even when they were active, is completely incomprehensible to me. And why I should find the improvement in the worsening of a chassis that is not exactly a revelation in the series state really great, does not reveal to me either. But before the Ernst Klacks Leverkus disciples now resort to the means of canceling the subscription: I don’t mean you at all!

Top and flops from Uli Holzwarth

With its great V2, the Suzuki SV 1000 N much entertainment value for little money. Especially when the weather plays into your cards when searching, as was the case with MOTORRAD Classic man Uli Holzwarth (52).

Spring 2016, for weeks it has been buzzing like pots, also on this Sunday morning. Instead of sitting on the motorcycle, I’m once again frustrated in front of the computer. It seems to be similar to a contemporary very close. The photo, taken hastily with a smartphone in the pouring rain, shows a Suzuki SV 1000 N, which he advertises in an Internet sales portal with two thin lines – because of a hobby. The first owner did not deal too intensively with his 1000, in 13 years he only covered 4,400 kilometers. Now the big V2 machine is about to go: “I’m not really a passionate motorcyclist, besides, it just rains.” Frustration also resonates, which is also expressed in the extremely tempting price. The seller obviously determined it on the basis of his instinct, without getting any further information. Less than an hour later, I’m standing in front of the silver SV 1000.

A firework of emotions

Although it still has the first tires on it and leaks a little from the left fork shaft seal, it is otherwise flawless – bought! With a handshake, the sun even manages to burn a few holes in the gray cloud cover. And on the transfer trip – finally in the dry! – it also lets the 120 hp Suzuki V2 burn. Bollert bassy, ​​pushes around the bottom and turns out the top, that it is a real splendor. A firework of emotions, to which the agile and stable driving behavior as well as the upright seating position, which make the V2 spectacle a relaxed pleasure, also fit. At home, I push the SV 1000 N into the garage with the certainty that I’ve hit the bull’s eye. A frustration purchase that turns out to be a pleasure purchase, and for little money! Prospective buyers of a Suzuki DR-Z 400 SM are currently experiencing that there can be another way. Which, however, is not due to the small and fun supermoto itself. But because of the sometimes completely exaggerated price expectations of many sellers, who even for highly “individualized” third-hand machines with over 10,000 kilometers on the clock call up prices that are higher than the original price. And completely ignore the fact that there are interesting alternatives for 5,000 euros with comparable key data that can (almost) everything better than the 400 series Suzuki. For example the strong 690 singles from KTM.

Tops and flops by Jorg Lohse

Adviser boss Jorg Lohse (47) actually swears by wonderfully crazy gut decisions. But his balance sheet after this turbulent year is: more common sense in the future, please!

A lot of motorcycle for little money … in principle the dream constellation! And in the case of the Yamaha FZ1 one that can actually be achieved quickly. Above all, the “successor” MT-10, released in 2016, has the qualities of FZ1 again put in the right light. That the new MT now has 10 hp more and the row quad from the Crossplane R1 growls like a real V4 thanks to the asymmetrical firing order – well. In everyday life, the more conventional FZ1 is therefore far from being worn out. Especially since it is available in two versions: as a beautifully drawn naked (this is now even more evident through the shrill insect face of the MT-10) and as a practical fazer with long-distance half-shell and comfortably tuned chassis. 150 PS are always enough for a happy Halali on the home route, and the middle / top vote is screaming for fire and flame anyway. The Yamaha have long since modified cracks according to their wishes: a 16-tooth sprocket (approx. 20 euros, from Enuma) against the somewhat slack draft or a steering damper (e.g. WP Suspension, approx. 250 euros) for more stability. The fact that the FZ1 was always the gray mouse among the Power Nakeds gives it really cheap prices, although it was sold off as a new one at the end. And so it happens that a splendid, high-quality big bike with ABS is available for less than four million.

Little motorcycle for a lot of money?

Let’s get to that Ducati 1199 Panigale and see how a lot of money is destroyed with a small motorcycle. Whereby “little” needs to be explained. Of course, the mighty V2 offers a lot – 192 hp and 112 millimeters of bore are an announcement in the superbike business. But the gain in knowledge with which the Diva di Bologna leaves you behind after many, many everyday kilometers, is very puny. Actually inaccessible because it is uncomfortable, unyielding – and incredibly loud. The MOTORRAD long-term test placement (rank 41, third from last!) Will also give rationally calculating used buyers something to think about. 2012 has the 1199 Panigale cost just under 20,000 euros. This value has almost halved within four years. And will it ever achieve cult status à la 916? Questionable …
