3. Suzuki SV60

Early, curvy SVs are still a very common site on the road 14 years after they were superseded by the pointy one. That’s because they go. And go. And go.

There’s an argument for going naked in winter because it means less nooks and crannies to collect road salt, but sod that for some weather protection. Go for a faired example if you can and you won’t just get through winter, you’ll enjoy it too, with a good punch from that V-twin engine.

About £1,200 should be enough to get a very decent one if you shop around and it’s another machine that isn’t going to lose value.
