Honda's flagship sportsbike is popular with dealers too

BRITISH motorcycle dealers have voted the Honda Fireblade as the 'Used Machine of the Year'.

The survey, conducted by British Dealer News, was voted on by almost 600 motorcycle dealers across the UK. Dealers who voted for the Fireblade reckoned it offers the best overall riding package, is a consistent top seller and rates very highly in reliability and quality and retains its value well.

The Fireblade is currently in its 19th year. It has won four BSB championship titles and countless TT race wins, as well as being and the first machine to break the 200mph barrier at the North West 200 and 130mph lap at the legendary Isle of Man TT.
