i have tried almost all the products recommended in this thread and i can say that the best by far is boiled linseed oil. available from hardware stores in a 1 litre bottle so its very very cheap. you only need a very small amount on a rag - wipe on - wait 5 - buff off. lasts for months even if you wash every week. google it. lots of recommendations for black plastics on cars.
Just be careful of BLO on your rags - they can/will spontaneously combust if left saturated/crumpled. I use it with my other hobby (wood working) and I tested it out for kicks - sure enough, FIRE!
I use Pledge on my bikes. Once I tried it, I never went back (and so much cheaper than Honda detailer/other brands etc). It works as well as any other thing I've used, I love it, and the bikes have a lemony fresh scent
