Discontinued Motorcycles We Miss The Most

Last updated March 23, 2023 by Simon Bertram


Bikes that were discontinued before the new millenium

2000 to 2010

The first decade of the 21st century saw some great models come and go

2010 & after

Recent bikes that we wish were still in production around the world

1987 to 1990 Honda RC30 (VFR750R)

One of Honda's first ever homologation supersport models, limited to just 3,000.

1994 to 1998 Ducati 916

1988 to 1993 Yamaha TDR250 Ultimate Dual

A bike that was way ahead of its time, yet also hilariously bonkers in only the way Yamaha can pull off

2002 to 2006 Harley-Davidson VRSCA V-Rod

A bike that rivals the Ducati 916 as the most beautiful thing on two wheels ever put into production

2000 to 2006 Honda RC51

A race bike with mirrors and a license plate holder, and a favorite of many superbike enthusiasts. Also known as the VTR1000 and RVT1000R

BMW R1150 GS & R1150 GS Adventure

Perhaps the most famous ADV of the 2000s, and while a modern version exists with the R1250 GS, the original is sometimes better!

2009 to 2020 Yamaha VMAX

One of the first power cruisers able to breach 150 MPH, and just kept getting more powerful as the years went on

1999 to 2020 Yamaha YZF-R6

Alongside the Suzuki GSX-R600R, the supersport that brought race-bike level fun to a road-legal sportbike

2010 to 2012 Husqvarna Nuda 900 S

Way ahead of its time when it was released, it was overlooked by many. Now, it is a modern classic that many riders want
