We love a bit of naked action at Fast Bikes. So much so we decided to bang our heads together, put pen to paper and come up with our top seven naked performers ever. If you’re in the market for a used offering, make sure to check these weapons out…



WHY IT ROCKS: If you after a refined and sensible naked bike, then look no further than the Honda CB1000R. With an engine that is turbine-like in its power delivery all wrapped up in a classy-looking naked that handles well, the CB is hard to fault. But it is missing in one very important area… soul.

WHY IT SUCKS: The CB is so sensible it lacks that spark of excitement a naked bike requires. How Honda have managed to make a 123bhp street fighter dull is a mystery, but sadly they have and it ruins what could be an amazing naked bike. Let’s hope 2018’s new model resolves this factor. ►WHAT GOES WRONG: Check the eccentric adjuster on the single sided swingarm isn’t seized solid, watch out for flaking engine paint and avoid bikes with the C-ABS system – it sucks!
