Top 5 Retro-bikes to Buy

Well, neo-classics are coming back with a bang. Motorcycle showrooms can be taken back in time and fit right in (ok, slight exaggeration). But almost all companies have something retro on their portfolio. The trend is now at its pick in this modern market with neo-classic bikes like Royal Enfield and Triumph living their best lives.

The truth is history now comes with an attractive price tag. Most retro-bikes today have that traditional look without sacrificing the current riding experience and tech. All these models are a work of art but with minimal storage and wind protection.  Any motorcycle import dealer would love to partner up with you for these bikes.

Kawasaki  Z900RS

This bike is not only an art piece but a game-changer in the biking world. Based on the somewhat angry Z900, it is fitted with a retro seat, de-tuned engine, and wire-spoked wheels. The modern LED light is masquerading as traditional light and the engine is painted black with machined mock cooling fins.

It has a cool dash that appears retro from afar but it has all the modern details you expect from a modern LCD.

Power: 110 bhp

Engine: Incline 4

Capacity: 948 cc

Triumph Speed Twin

Ever thought of having a sportier T120? Well, this speed twin is exactly that with cooler mirrors and a bit lighter. With the legendary Thruxton High Power engine, your performance is taken a notch higher. It’s a spectacular solid and safe bike that comes in black, silver & black, and red & black.

Power: 96 bhp

Engine: Parallel Twin

Capacity: 1200 cc

BMW R nine T

It doesn’t get more retro and classic than this BMW R nine T. Yes, you have to chop more money but you can’t make a louder statement. It’s a bike that tells a heritage brief. What sets it apart is the tacho and speedo, heated grips, and a gear position read out. If you love the unique boxer noise, this bike can unleash it like no other.

Power: 110 bhp

Engine: Boxer

Capacity: 1170 cc

Honda CB1000R

When it comes to power and appearance, it’s the odd one out on this list. It’s somewhere between a modern retro and naked bike styles. The transmission is like silk but what did you expect, it’s a Honda. The de-tuned Fireblade engine generates more power than you require for the road.

Power: 143 bhp

Engine: Incline 4

Capacity: 948 cc
