Used Motorcycles: Desire more at low cost
The official term may be motorcycles, but these small, compact, affordable and easy to navigate vehicles more lovingly referred to as bikes. Whether it is because of their affordability, smaller size and thus greater flexibility or simply because you love the thrill of riding a bike, if you are thinking of buying a motorcycle, the first question to ask is whether you want a new one or a used one.
As always, there is no right or wrong choice set in stone. What matter are your specific requirements and how much you can afford at the moment, as well as a few other factors.
New one or used one
Bike lovers always prefer for new motorcycles. There are some crucial factors which sometimes push the bikers to buy the second hand motorcycles. If you want to taste the new technology but do not have enough budgets for a new model, then obviously used motorbikes are the best choice for you.
For starters, the most obvious argument in favour of used motorcycles is that they obviously cost less. If you are on a tight budget, then used motorcycles are surely a more economical choice.
For first time bikers
One other interesting factor is whether you are an experienced biker or are you just starting out. While it really doesn’t matter either way if you are adept at riding motorcycles, for amateur bikers, used motorcycles are definitely the way to go. Since you are just starting, you are going to have accidents and falls which will undoubtedly cause more dents and scratches than usual, so buying a used bike would be a more wise option.
One other factor, on a related note, is that for a first time biker you are less likely to know exactly what kind of motorcycle and features you would prefer for the long run. It is wiser, therefore, to test the waters with a used model and then move on to a newer model in the future when you have enough skill and knowledge regarding the ownership and riding of motorcycles.
Warranty, not always a guarantee
Finally, let’s move on to the subject of warranty. It is most commonly discussed that newer vehicles, both cars and vehicles, have better warranty for new models. That is undoubtedly true in the sense that a new vehicle has "unused warranty". On the other hand, however, a new car with its warranty intact is not always certified mark of perfect condition of the vehicle itself. It is equally likely, therefore, for used motorcycles to be just as good as new and in excellent state despite not being brand new.
Popular Second hand bikes
Second hand bikes are very popular among the new generation. Everyone wants to taste the new. So they prefer the new models from the market. Again the brand new models are very costly and that is the main reason this kind of bike lovers prefers the second hand. Most of used motorcycles are from Yamaha and Honda Brand. Moreover, some Bajaj models like Pulsar, Discover or Hero CBZ, Hunk, Passion are also popular as a used model. TVS apache is another model which has great demand in the market.
