9 Bikes for 2019

In our last post we covered the Best Bikes of 2018 as voted for by Auto Trader. Now that we’re in a new year, the internet has been going crazy about the up and coming bikes that the world is treating us to in 2019, We Buy Any Bike are here today to share all the insights into what new, or improved motorcycles we’re excited about this year!

Ducati Panigale V4

Voted the best bike of 2018 was Ducati’s Panigale V4 S. This year, the Italians are coming back with a vengeance, bringing us a brand new, fresh and updated V4 R model. Owners and riders of this bike will get to ride this beast that gives us a 221hp at 15,250rpm on a normal road. This may seem a bit much for some but we can assure you that the bike has been approved under the Euro 4 emissions standards.


Brembo have also introduced their callipers to this new model. Coming equipped with the classically new and improved Desmodromic System, and of course, the Ohlins suspension as we see on many Ducati models has once again been fitted to the bike. Ducati have collaborated with Bosch for the electronics of the bike, featuring:

  • Cornering ABS EVO
  • Traction Control EVO
  • Slide Control
  • Wheelie Control EVO
  • Power Launch
  • Quick Shift EVO
  • Engine Brake Control EVO

Ducati has adapted this bike so you can enjoy a variety of 3 modes whilst riding; Race, Street, and Sport. The V4 R also has the same TFT dash that has remained prominent throughout the whole series but it has been updated to adapt to the new model. Some new features include a lap timer GPS that will come handy on the track, as well as a Pit Limiter function.

Indian motorcycles have been at it again, creating this new and exciting bike that we just can’t wait to get our hands on!

Ducati Scrambler 1100 2019

Ducati are on a roll this year! The scrambler series is always an exciting one here in the office. This year Designer Jeremy Faraud has set himself up with a blank canvas with a completely blank canvas. Unfortunately – I guess, the Scramblers are all so good looking that they all influence each other. So, if you ask the man behind the machines to design a completely new one, it’s not going to go very creatively. Luckily enough, however, the Scramblers are all gorgeous and well appreciated by Ducati lovers all over the world – so it goes down completely well when they add some new qualities; even if it does look the same!


The 2019’s 1100 has many added quirks in comparison to its brothers, such as:

  • Added Fuel Capacity
  • Wider Seat
  • A Taller Seat – 31.8 inches from the ground
  • Dual 320mm Brembo Discs
  • Bosch ABS System
  • Ohlins Suspension
  • 45mm Marzocchi Forks
  • Kayaba Adjustable Monoshock

Royal Enfield 650

2019 is the year that Royal Enfield are treating us well good and proper. We aren’t just getting 1 new bike – we’re getting 2! This year, the best of the British have released the Continental GT and the Interceptor. Both models are quite contrasting, but they do have some similarities. Such as, the classic Royal Enfield styling featuring a retro round headlight, an exposed frame, spoked wheels and a dual reverse megaphone. Both models are powered by 648cc parallel twin engines that give us 45 horsepower and 38 foot by pounds torque. The twin dial gauges are also featured on both models – the left dial features a digital inset screen (fuel level indicator/trip & odometer reader included). On the right dial we have a tachometer.


The Continental GT has been designed for the adventurous biker who likes to put their foot down. This bike features:

  • Clip-on handlebars, with cafe racer styling
  • Rear set foot pegs
  • Fuel tank with carvings designed for the rider to position themselves for when they want to take the gears up a notch – to put it in simple terms!

Enfield’s Continental model comes in a selection of different colours; such as, Ice Queen (White), Ventura Blue, Mister Clean (Metallic Silver), Black Magic (Black/Gold), and Dr. Mayhem (Black/Silver).

On the other hand, the Interceptor is Royal Enfield’s new commuter! This is the standard model, featuring:

  • Upright Handlebars
  • 2-person seat built for comfort
  • Foot pegs situated parallel to the knee of the rider
  • A teardrop shaped tank with slight carvings.

The Intruder comes in a compilation of colours, such as Baker Express (Red/White), Silver Spectre, Mark Three (Black), Glitter & Dust (Metallic Silver), Orange Crush, and Ravishing Red.

Suzuki Katana 2019

In just 3 months, we see the introduction of Suzuki’s new and improved Katana. The styling of the bike is completely inspired by the 1981 original. The body, on the other hand, has taken aspects of the GSX-S1000 model. Due to its success, Suzuki has replicated its Aluminium Frame, along with the wheels, and the braking/suspension system.


The new features include:

  • 3-Mode Traction Control
  • LED Lighting distributed throughout the bike
  • Fully Adjustable 43mm KRB Inverted Forks
  • Brembo Radial Brake Calipers
  • 999cc 4-Cylinder Engine giving 145.7hp.

Moto Guzzi V85 TT

After waiting long and patiently since they first released a brief overview of the prototype back in 2017, Moto Guzzi have finally given us the best of both worlds with the V85 TT! The ‘best of both worlds’ comes from the TT in the name. Chances are, you’re not Italian, so you won’t know what Tutto Terenno means. Well, thankfully its quite similar to English in this case – so, if you guessed ‘All Terrain’, you guessed correctly!


Pretty much, all the bikes that I’ve listed so far are all ‘new and improved’ models – but here we have a completely new model! This bike is ideal for the enduro lovers who want a bike that they can commute on too. If you were into bikes in the 80’s you might recall the enduro models from back then – and Moto Guzzi have too! Do you see the similarities?

Along with this, they have also gifted us with various other features, such as:

  • 21 Litre Fuel Tank
  • Adjustable Wind Screen
  • Traction Control
  • ABS
  • 3 Riding Modes (Road/Rain/Off-Road)
  • A Bluetooth enables Full-Colour TFT Dashboard. Featuring:- Fuel Level, Speed, Revs, Gear, Temperature, Cruise Control Settings.
  • Skid Plate
  • LED Twin Headlight with DRL
  • Spoked Wheels
  • Hand Guards
  • Twin Cylinders give us a 79bhp

The V85 TT has a dry weight of 465lbs and accessory luggage can also be included for alternative trips. This bike comes in 2 colour schemes – basic grey, and a combination of White, Yellow and Black.

Harley Davidson Sports Glide

We’ve all heard about the electric models HD are bringing us this year, but they’re also releasing a newer version of their Softail range. The Sports Glide isn’t the biggest bike they’ve released, but it’s still a hefty little thing, weighing up at a dry weight of 670lb. The blacked out custom look is a classic Softail feature, as well as the Softail frame. It also comes with various other standard features, like ABS, Cruise Control, as well as a great security system! On the other hand, Harley has given us some newbie’s with this 1746cc bike – such as:

  • A Milwaukee-Eight 107 Engine, giving us 108ft-lb torque
  • A detachable front mini-fairing
  • Removable Saddlebags
  • High-Performance Suspension
  • A Fuel Tank that is just short of 19 Litres
  • Single-Shock Rear End
  • 43mm inverted forks with single-cartridge damping control

As usual, we’ve got a whole collection of colours to go with this bike too. On this model, Harley Davidson has given us the choice of 7! We’ve got vivid black, twisted cherry, wicked red, midnight blue, barracuda silver, and kinetic green.

There we have it! We could’ve featured more, but we thought it was quite fitting to feature just 9 for 2019! Don’t forget to let us know if there are any models in particular you’re excited about, and we might even do a feature on them!
