If you’re an active buyer or seller on CycleTrader, you know it hosts the most diverse selection of bikes in the world. On any given day, CycleTrader features nearly 165,000 classified ads for motorcycles, personal watercraft and snowmobiles of every make and model – from the gnarliest of Harleys to the wildest customs.
But which makes and models are sold the most? Our friends at uShip put together a top ten list of the most popular motorcycle makes and models shipped across the United States over the past five years. It gives a clear indication of the most popular bikes bought and sold online.
Harley-Davidson has three moto models on the list, followed by two each for Suzuki, Yamaha and Honda. The only model on the list not still in production is the Honda CB750, which was produced between 1969 and 2003, then again for one year in 2007. Interestingly enough, the CB750 introduced and popularized the overhead camshaft inline four-cylinder engine that influenced countless sport bikes – including several on this list.
Without further ado, the top ten:
1. Yamaha YZF-R6
2. Suzuki GSX-R 600
3. Honda CBR 600 RR
4. Yamaha YZF-R6
5. Suzuki GSX-R 750 and 1000
6. Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R
7. Harley-Davidson FLHR Road King
8. Harley-Davidson FLHX Street Guide
9. Harley-Davidson FLHTCUI Ultra Classic Electra Glide
10. Honda CB 750 F
