How to Buy a Used Bike?

You’ve always dreamt about owning that bike, but you’ve always fallen short of cash. Someone may wish to sell just the bike that you badly want at a giveaway price. If you manage to find that person, you’ll soon have your dream bike.

Some people feel that used bikes should not be purchased because owners would not sell the bikes if they were still roadworthy. This is not always true. People often sell their trusty old bikes when they need money to buy a car or wish to buy another bike that has caught their fancy. The only difference between buying an old and a new vehicle is that the old vehicle has to be tested properly before it is bought. There is another difference; in the case of used vehicles, both the buyer and the seller get to decide the price. If you wish to buy a bike that has been used, you should know what factors determine the price of used vehicles.

How prices of used vehicles are fixed

The price of a new bike of the model that you wish to buy will be one of the most important factors. If you are buying a relatively new bike, you may get the manufacturer’s warranty benefits. If this benefit is not available, then the bike will come at a cheaper rate. The age of the bike and the number of kilometers it has covered also determines the price. As a buyer, you should remember to ask for the garage history of the bike. Try to avoid bikes that have been repaired too many times.

How to find a seller

Often it is difficult to find a seller who has just the bike that you want. Some second hand bikes dealers may be able offer some options, but they’ll keep their cut. Now you needn’t give these dealers your hard earned money because there are websites which allow bike owners to advertise the bike that they wish to sell. If you keep a tab on the advertisements that are published in these sites, you’re more likely to find a bike owner and strike a deal with him. Since some of these portals do even charge money for advertising, sellers are only too happy to use the free e-space to get in touch with the buyers.

After you zero in on the motorcycle that you will purchase, you should take for a test drive. Once you’re happy with the performance, hand over the cash and the machine is yours’!
