What Bike Summer 2018 - Used bike special

With so many incredible used bikes on the market, why buy new in 2018? 

We've created a used bike special edition of What Bike? to give you the knowledge you need to pick up a great used bike this year. We've handpicked ten of the hottest used deals from £1,000 to £12k and some unmissible pre-owned gems in each different genre of bikes. The expert team of road testers at MCN have chosen their top picks from nakeds, sub-500s, adventure, sportsbikes and sports tourers offering you loads of options when choosing your next machine. Plus we celebrate
20 years of Yamaha's YZF-R1 with a look at the latest model vs the game changing original.

We know that excitement can lead to novice errors when buying a used bike, so read our experts' buying tips and buy right first time. And to make sure you get the biggest buck for your own bike when you sell it, we show you how to prep it like a pro before offering it for sale.

But if it's a new bike you're still dreaming of, then fear not, we've got 319 new bikes listed, each with specs, licence categories, prices and reviews from the expert team at MCN, plus we've picked out ten class acts - the cream of the new-for-2018 bikes that simply have to be on your test ride list.
