Looking for used or salvage motorcycles?
There’s something magical about riding through the hills on a motorcycle. The freedom that comes along with it is incomparable to anything else, but if you’re looking through salvage motorcycles, you may not know where to start. With around 500,000 new motorcycle sales in the United States every year, where do you start looking from such a wide range of options? To help you out, we’re listing five of the most legendary bikes (according to us and in no particular order) you can find on AutoBidMaster.
Harley Davidson Road Glide FLTRX
Originally introduced as the Tour Glide in 1979 – which paved the way for the Harley Davidson Road Glide in 1998 – the 2020 Road Glide is a cruiser to be reckoned with. Equipped with a 1,868 cc engine that puts out 130 lb-ft of torque, it’s loaded with features like a Bluetooth-linked sound system to make long rides as comfortable as possible. This is luxury riding, without a doubt. Look at that windscreen: it’s practically like being in a car.

The Yamaha R6 (also known as the YZF-R6) has been a staple in the motorcycle racing industry since its introduction in 1999: it was the world’s first 600cc four-stroke to put out over 100 hp right off the line. The 2020 model puts out 117 horsepower and maintains its AMA Championship winning record: you can’t go wrong with this 599cc sportbike. For either street or track, the R6 is powerful, efficient, and most important: fun.
Being a really popular bike, and we have lots of Yamaha R6s going up for auction.
When it comes to touring on a motorcycle, few bikes hold a candle (or a sparkplug) to the Honda Goldwing. Introduced in 1974, the Goldwing was the first Japanese motorcycle with a water-cooled four stroke engine.
The 2020 Honda Goldwing puts out 97.9 hp and 108 lb-ft of torque and is available with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (with a reverse gear ‘walking’ gear!) if shifting isn’t exactly your thing.
The first motorcycle with Apple CarPlay, you can integrate your smartphone directly into your motorcycle, which making long tours smooth and easy. Get your touring bike life started with our available Honda Goldwings.
Kawasaki Ninja 250
Kawasaki’s Ninja series has long been a staple of the sportbike segment, and the Ninja 250 has been hailed as the perfect learning bike: small, lightweight, and manageable without being wildly underpowered. It also gets phenomenal mileage: some model years get an average of 60 mpg.
If you’re learning how to ride, grab a Ninja 250.
An epic bike list wouldn’t be right without Ducati. The Panigale series is a family of sportbikes named after the manufacturing town of Borgo Panigale, the home of Ducati’s manufacturing facility. The original Panigale was the Ducati 1199, and off the line it put out 195 horsepower weighing only 362 pounds (dry) which is still wildly impressive by today’s standards.
The Panigale family includes the 899, 959, 1199, 1299, V2, and V4 models, and all of them are flippin’ gorgeous. The latest Panigale V4 puts out 234 horsepower and 87.7 lb-ft of torque while weighing only 335 pounds dry, which is absolutely insane.
That being said, Ducati is renowned for producing beautiful bikes.
