5. Suzuki GS500E

The GS500 is an under-appreciated machine, with an undeserved reputation for poor finish quality. And that means you can get a very good 10-year-old one for under a grand.

You’ll be sacrificing weather protection with the naked E version but the absence of a fairing means easier repairs and maintenance and makes hosing off road salt easier.

It’s comfortable and it will see off many winters if cared for.

Engine: 487cc air-cooled parallel-twin

Power: 44hp

Torque: 28.9lbft

Dry weight: 169kg

Seat height: 790mm
