WeWantYourMotorbike has published a study of the UK’s most searched for motorbike models.

The Yamaha R1 was confirmed as Britain’s most searched for bike, averaging 10,000 monthly Google searches. The Suzuki SV650 scored second with 6,200, while the Yamaha MT-07 came in third with 5,500.

The research revealed Yamaha as the most searched marque, featuring nine models in the top 50. Triumph followed closely behind with eight and Honda registered seven.

Paul Coulter, Marketing Director of WeWantYourMotorbike, said: “It's interesting to analyse search trends and how these compare with the bestselling models each year, showcasing the bikes which are the most desired against those which are most commonly seen on the road.”

The research aims to gauge the popularity of each manufacturer and model by calculating the amount of average monthly searches via Google based on UK activity during the last 12 months.
