Used Motorcycles: How to Buy One & Avoid Newbie Mistakes

Searching for used motorcycles? Maybe you’re buying your first bike or it’s time for an upgrade. Whichever is the case, you need to consider a few things and avoid the common mistakes.

This is a short guide for those planning to buy a second hand motorbike. Let’s get started:

1. Where will you use the bike?

Will you use it for commuting, sports or touring? This simple question can greatly help in making a wise purchase.

From the look of the bike itself, you’ll already feel what’s it for. You can also find versatile motorbikes ideal for different conditions.

For instance, the Suzuki GSX-650F is ideal for the back roads and open highway. Its comfortable design and upright seating position can make an all-day ride a pleasure.

2. Pricing

All things being equal, pricing will play a huge role in what bike to choose.

Some say that motorbikes coming from Europe are expensive. However, it’s all about finding a good deal. You can find motorcycle dealers that provide reasonable pricing and financing options.

3. Reputable dealer

You can actually find better deals from reputable and established motorcycle dealers. They ensure that second hand bikes they sell are still of good quality. It’s their reputation in the line that’s why they always go the extra mile.

4. Servicing

Whether it’s a new or used motorbike, sooner or later it’s going to need servicing. It’s recommended that you request for servicing from the same dealer where you purchased the bike. This way, you’re sure that their technicians can properly service the motorcycle (it’s in their range of expertise).

5. If possible, test drive

Your preference will show up in this moment. Some buyers immediately regret it when they found out their motorcycles “aren’t for them.” To avoid this regret, it’s recommended to test ride a few. This way, you’ll know for sure if it’s right for you.
