6 Key Steps to Buying a Used Motorcycle

You May Ignore to YourDetriment

The biggest question facing motorcycle buyers everywhere is whether they should

buy a new one or settle for a used one. When you buy a used bike from leading

dealerships, offline or online, it saves you a lot of money. But that’s just tip of the

iceberg. Buying a used motorcycle has few potential risks. If not careful, one can

become a victim of vehicle frauds or scams and get burned.

make sure you follow these 6 measures to avoid

Make sure you follow these 6 measures to avoid pitfalls associated with buying a

used bike.

1. Decide what you want

Do you want the motorcycle for daily commutes, make tours, engage in sports, or it

is a combination of all these. Identifying the reason behind your quest for a bike will

enable you to go for the right one. At such time, it is important to be honest with

yourself.

2. Buy from a leading dealership

Purchases from private individuals may be tempting because of lower prices, but

buyers cannot return to them in case the motorcycle goes kaput. On the other hand,

most dealerships give warranty and are even ready to work with you should

something goes wrong with the bike within the warranty period. A few more dollars

spent could mean freedom from future troubles.

3. Check the bike yourself

Do a visual inspection of the obvious parts such as steering head, tires, brake, brake

fluid, clutch, chassis, sprocket, chain, fuel tank (for oil leaks or corrosion), etc. These

motorcycle parts can be inspected manually or by using some simple tools. If you’re

a bike buff and possess a fair knowledge, you may do it yourself. Otherwise, seek

help from a professional mechanic.

4. Do a VIN check

Actually, this step should precede everything else in the process of buying a used

bike. A motorcycle VIN check tracks the history of the vehicle throughout its life-time.

Information such as make and year of the vehicle, the number of times the vehicle

has changed hands, service history, theft, recalls, cloning, involvement in accidents,

and pending criminal or insurance cases become clear on running a simple VIN

check.

5. Take it for a test drive

We never know how things are like in life until we actually do it. That’s exactly why it

is important to test drive the motorcycle you intend to buy to ascertain how the bike

feels. Select a pleasant day with dry road and good visibility. Pick a route you are

familiar with with light to medium traffic. Put on all the safety gears. Notice if there

is anything abnormal about the bike, for instance, engine noises. Start slow, then

accelerate and decelerate and see how the bike responds. It should feel stable.

6. Negotiate a realistic price

After you obtain a detailed information on the motorcycle, it is time to negotiate the

price. Both the buyer and the seller must be realistic and reasonable in arriving at

the final price. Ensure that you get a fair price befitting the condition and

performance of the bike. You may also do some research online, or ask someone

knowledgeable about the prevailing prices of used vehicles. This will safeguard a

buyer against overpricing.

Conclusion

At any time, there are a lot of second-hand bikes in the market for those interested

in such used vehicles. One can get even leading brands such as Yamaha and

Kawasaki out there. It may take some time for you to decide; nevertheless, the bikes

will always be there. Never let your eagerness to buy overtake careful considerations.
