When it comes to buying a motorbike, there will always be a big variety of bikes to choose from. Certain colours, models or engine sizes can help influence your final decision to buy. However, one of the big things you should be considering before buying is whether the motorbike is second hand. In this article, we will show you not only the benefits of buying a second-hand motorbike but why you should consider buying one next.

 

Price to buy

 

One of the most obvious benefits of buying a second-hand motorcycle is that the price will usually be much less than buying a brand new motorbike. This is because usually certain parts on the bike will be older and more worn than a newer bike. However, just because something is worn or has been used, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will perform poorly or break easily. In fact, it may save you more money to buy a second-hand car and make a few fixes than to buy a brand new motorbike outright.

 

Price to insure

As well as the second-hand bike being cheaper to buy, it will also likely be cheaper to insure. Now, this is different from model to model, however, you will usually find that newer bikes will be more costly to insure. This is because insurance companies will look at the valuation of a motorbike as well as the potential cost of replacing certain parts of the bike. Second-hand motorcycles will usually be cheaper to repair therefore making the price of the insurance go down.

 

Specific modifications

One of the unique things about buying a second-hand motorbike is that certain bikes will come with modifications that you may not get with brand new bikes. For example, certain tyres, exhaust mods, engine mods, wraps etc. Certain mods will not be available on stock models, so it is important to keep an eye out for mods on second-hand motorbikes.

 

Better investment

When looking at motorcycles for sale, you may not be thinking of them as an investment but rather as an expense. This is where second-hand bikes will shine. When buying a stock motorbike brand-new, it is extremely likely that the value of the bike will depreciate as soon as you ride it. 

 

Whereas some second-hand motorbikes will actually go up in price based on their age. Vintage motorbikes can sometimes increase in price as they age, making them a good investment.
