Future classic

Post  paul on Sun 05 Oct 2014, 6:38 pm

The latest motorcycle trader has a few pages of the bandits progression through its model life in the future classics section .
Looking back at other classics , the criteria has never been the dearest or even the best bike built ,just something that appeals & that people hold some form of attraction  to for whatever reason  & there can be no doubt of the impact the bandit has had over its model life .
I think certainly the series 1 would classify ,& whether that carries on to the later models I suppose we will have to wait & see .

I think there's a chance with the series 1, not the same confidence in series II.  Series 1 has a reputation as a bad boys wheelie king - something of a cult following in the UK (Banditmania has now stopped all coverage and sales of the series II and is concentrating solely on series 1.).  

Hard to pick a future classic - my storage of the TRX850 is purely speculative but I have already had a call from someone wanting to know if I'd be prepared to sell it.  Picking a winner is difficult - just yesterday my brother said he missed out on a Vespa (don't recall what model) that he rung about less than 24 hrs after it was advertised - it was already sold at $2,500 (Shane reckons it was worth anything up to $5k on current value).  Good luck if you are speculating!  Smile

I would be very surprised if your TRX didn't make the list  Very Happy The Vespas are a very nostalgic one from the old mod days I would think .

Hmmm, I wonder if the "06 Bandit" could become a future classic. It only come out for the one year! Razz

I might have to hang onto the VTR1000F then.

The TRX is a no brainer IMO but Paul, how could you even consider the V word in the same sentence?  Evil or Very Mad
