How To Buy A Motorcycle

Posted by Scott Sanders on Monday, January 6, 2014 Under: Guest Motorcycle Articles

So, you've finally decided that you're ready to buy that motorcycle you've been dreaming about for the past 10 years. Congratulations! Do you know how to buy a motorcycle? This ATV buyer's guide will provide everything you need to know before you buy. Whether you're a seasoned expert or just getting started, the following will be beneficial to you.

Hopefully, you've already taken at least one motorcycle safety course and gotten your motorcycle license. If you haven't, you should do it before you buy a motorcycle - you'll definitely want to ride home from wherever you buy it! If you already you're your license, you've probably got a few in hand and ready to buy - but you're not exactly sure what to look for or what to expect.

Here are a few tips that should help you figure out how to buy a motorcycle:

1. If you've been dreaming about motorcycles for years, you probably already have an idea of what kind of bike you want. It doesn't matter if you're in love with Harleys, Yamahas or Honda's - you want a bike that will provide you with years of service. For most of us, a buying a bike is an emotional process and it's hard to put your needs before your wants. You must prioritize.

2. Think about what kind of riding will you be doing? Commuting or cruising? How far will you ride? Is gas mileage important? Will you be riding solo or with a passenger?

3. Cost. A lot of people shop based solely on the cost of the bike. You should also take into consideration the true operating cost of the bike, including the sticker price. Monthly payments, maintenance, insurance and gas can add up quickly!

4. Which features are important to you? Comfort, style, color? Remember to take into consideration things like engine size, available options and ergonomics. You'll want a bike that has the right height, reach and weight - the last thing you want is a bike that you're not comfortable on. The more flexible you are about specifics, the more options and bargaining power you have!

5. Once you figure out the above, you should be able to narrow your choices down to just a few bikes. Now it's time to start visiting the dealerships or shopping the local ads. Get a solid idea of what the average selling prices are of each of the bikes you're interested in from both dealers and private sellers.

6. If you can, try to buy during the winter months when sales are slow and dealers are trying to move last year's inventory. You could end up saving a lot of money (you'll just have to wait longer to take your first long ride!).

7. Take a test ride. This is crucial! You should test ride each and every bike you're interested in, even if the one you ride may not be the one you ultimately end up buying. Also, if you ride the bikes consecutively, you'll be able to see the differences between them more easily, which should help you make your decision.

8. Last, before you buy a new motorcycle you should look it over. Yes, you expect it to be in perfect condition, but it still may have defects or damage from shipping or test driving. Oh, and make sure it comes with a warranty! You'll be glad you took the time to do this if something ever goes wrong.
