Any biker. Any budget.

The experts from Auto Trader Bikes have ridden hundreds of miles, testing every new bike on sale in the UK to pick these category winners and name the Best Bike of 2014.

Introducing the best bikes of 2014

Welcome to the inaugural Best Bike Awards from the UK’s biggest marketplace for motorcycles. An Auto Trader Best Bike Award is a new sign of excellence for the industry, which helps consumers when researching their next dream ride. There are twelve category winners celebrated and listed below, as well as our first Bike of the Year.

For this, we’ve chosen the Yamaha MT-07. It’s everything you could ever want from a bike – great fun, fast, practical, economical and astonishingly good value for money. In the MT-07, Yamaha has helped re-define not only the naked category, but biking as a whole.
