1995 Suzuki RF900R
Great value, almost forgotten 90s superbike
Nothing at all.
The great unsung hero of the 90s... unfashionable I suppose... but look beyond that and this was and still is a motorcycle that does everything well. It's not brilliant at anything, just very good at pretty much everything. Bulletproof 90s build quality... proven Suzuki mechanicals, and lighter and more nimble than first appearances might suggest. Oh... and available for a song now if you can find a good example.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Yes I couldn't agree more. 3 months ago I bought a 1999 reg RF900 with 17k miles, completely standard, wine red and grey. Now I've owned many, many bikes since the 1960s and raced in the 70s and 80s, and had several Hayabusas, ZZR1400 etc, and this thing is incredible. From 30mph in top gear (5th), she just pulls and pulls super cleanly really strongly, outperforming many modern bikes, a true wolf in sheep's clothing if ever there was one, with great handling, brakes and comfort, good on fuel too. She gets a lot of attention at bike meets, and bikers are very curious about this bike and are surprised when I tell them it holds 2 world records. Fantastic bike which I will keep for a very long time; definitely buy one if you find a clean one.
