Fast Bikes uncovers seven great used sportsbikes that refused to be defined by their capacity.


We all like to put things in their respective boxes, including motorcycles. But if some adventurous designers hadn’t gone a little off-piste on occasion, we’d have missed out on some corkers of bikes over the many generations man (and woman) has been straddling two-wheeled contraptions. In our view, at least in recent(ish) times, these are the very best misfit motorcycles to have come our way and we’re bloody glad they did…


What makes it unique? Just about everything! Brainchild of Erik Buell (the chap sitting), the XB-9R was meant to be the focus of Buell as Harley-Davidson’s sporting arm. Employing such radical technology as housing the fuel in the frame, oil in the swingarm and mounting the brake disc to the wheel rim. As quirky bikes go, the Buell is a superb handling machine, but it is slow, has a horrific gearbox and parts are hard to locate. Still, we all love a challenge.
