So you like 'em cheap, fast and in their birthday suit?
IF there’s one thing better than speed, it’s cheap speed. Loads of horsepower for not much money is an equation that just never fails to get one's loins all a-tingle.
In this Top Ten, we give you the ten fastest nakeds you can buy for under £3,000 [current trade prices]. You’d be amazed at what you can get for the price of a new 125cc bike (two if they're Chinese).
Why nakeds? Well, sportsbikes are great and we love them, but they sure are demanding beasts. Chest on the tank, hunching into a tiny windscreen and staring up into the top of your eyeballs as you blast along is not for everyone. No, some of us prefer to sit up and catch the fly-specked wind like the weatherbeaten sail of a man-o’-war. Besides, with no fairings to break and more sensible riding positions, nakeds are more practical everyday bikes, and dare I say, more beautiful machines, with their brawny engines proudly on display for all to gawp at.
To keep this list down to a reasonable size, we’ve restricted it to 21st century bikes. Yes, you could pick up some mad ‘80s/’90s nakeds off eBay for a few hundred quid, but that’s a story for another day.
Right then - if cheap, fast and resplendently nude is your thing, click to see our top ten fast naked motorcycles, in alphabetical order.
Yeah baby. This is right up my street-fighter. But... You won't get the Tuono pictured for less than £3k that's a MK2. MK1s are cheaper and arguably more agressive/less refined and look a bit dated from some angles. Still great bikes though.
Also the Speed Triple pictured is a 1050 not a 955. A 1050 S3 will like-wise blow the stated budget.
