Buying a Motorcycle
"Which bike is best for me?" is
probably the number-one inquiry asked from just about every classification
of rideróbe it eager beginner or seasoned vet. Naturally, this makes
perfect sense. For novices or people trying to pick a bike for a new or
young rider, the variety of models, price, easy-to-ride, easy-to-learn can
make it amazingly confusing to select a motorcycle upon which to begin the
Choose your bike. Weather you are
interested in a Harley Davidson, Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda, or Kawasaki
motorcycle there are many models to choose from in each brand. The first
place and easiest place to start your research is on the internet. Each
motorcycle manufacturer has a website. There are many dealers who have
webpages where you can find out as much as there is to know about each
brand, and model offered. Once you narrow your choices down you can go to
a dealer and get up close and personal with the motorcycles of your
choice. Some dealers offer demo rides and rentals. This is another option
for you to explore. This opportunity is a great one as you get to try
riding the motorcycle to see how it feels for you.
Do the numbers. There are budget planners available online to figure out
how much bike you can afford. You then choose your bike and the payment
calculator will figure out what your estimated monthly payment would be.
Finances. If you need some financial
help many motorcycle dealers offer financial services. Some would offer
financing, insurance, extended service plans, and protection plans.
Another good option is to try to call several banks and find out what
their rates are. It is best to shop around for the lowest rate possible.
Working Out A Deal. When you finally
go out to buy your motorcycle, it is best to deal with the sales manager.
They usually know how to best negotiate with a client. Be sure to ask the
sales manager to quote you the "out the door" price on the motorcycle. The
"out the door" price is the final price of the motorcycle after taxes and
the other hidden fees. If they refuse to give you an out the door quote,
that should give you warning that they are trying to hide something that
they will charge you later.
The amount of money that you will need to
maintain your motorcycle will all depend on which motorcycle you purchase.
Purchasing a high performance motorcycle will need alot more maintenance
than a motorcycle with a lower performance. This is mainly because
motorcycles that produce more horsepower have components that cannot be
tuned or replaced by a novice mechanic. You have to take these bikes to
professionals who will usually charge good dollars for this type of
There will always be maintenance cost but
how many times a year your bike needs it is dependant on what type of
motorcycle and how much you ride it. A smaller motorcycle will probably
only need 2-3 major adjustments or checks a year depending on how much you
ride your bike. These bikes are very economical for this reason.
