Our latest batch of motorcycles has been added to our 2015 Buyer’s Guide. All the 2015 (and a few 2016) road-going models from Husqvarna, Moto Guzzi and Royal Enfield, as well as the three wheelers from Polaris, Can Am and Ural.
But what good is a buyer’s guide? Well, the obvious answer is so a potential buyer can compare potential purchases side by side in one location (we even reworked the info so it’s a direct comparo across brands). But it’s also a great source to see what is what and entertain the motorcycle stats freaks among you. For example, some interesting facts:
What is the most expensive three-wheeler in Canada?
No, not the decked out Spyder RT Limited ($34,149), nor the fancy Slingshot SL ($26,499), and definitely not the top-of-the-line adventure Ural Gear-Up hack ($18,599). Nope it’s the old school trike (two wheels at the back), Harley-Davidson Tri Glide Ultra at a hefty $41,359.
What’s the best value for money classic air-cooled cafe racer?
Comparing the Moto Guzzi V7 racer ($10,590) to the Triumph Thruxton ($10,699) and they look pretty even. The Thruxton has a 120 cc advantage (at 856 cc), which also gives it 50% more HP and double the torque of the Guzzi, but it’s also a parallel twin as opposed to the Guzzi’s V-twin that some might prefer. But then let’s not forget the Royal Enfield Continental GT; $3,500 less than the others, but a lowly 535cc single with half the power of the Triumph and a third of the torque.
At this point we have one more batch to update, which we’ll hopefully get done and dusted in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, please browse our almost-complete 2015 Motorcycle Buyer’s Guide.
