If you want to sell your motorbike, whether you want to put that money from the sale towards a new motorbike or something else entirely, you could be anxious about the prospect of a tough market or stressful haggling. You shouldn't be - selling your motorbike bike can actually be relatively straightforward when the task is approached with caution. Here are some quick tips...
Make sure the motorbike is in good condition
Whoever considers buying your motorbike will naturally want to closely inspect it before handing over any cash. For that reason, before you even put the motorbike on the market, you should spend a lot of time looking over it for any signs of wear and tear and, wherever you can, banishing them. As far as possible, restore your motorbike to shiny showroom standard!
However, the motorbike shouldn't just look good. You also want it to be capable of super-smooth performance on the road; that way you can report this with confidence to any interested would-be motorbike buyers. To this end, you should carefully look over the motorbike tyres, coolant, electrics and chain. If a bulb is blown, replace it; if the brakes are dirty, clean them! Oh, and if it doesn't already have one, get the motorbike an MOT.
Have various details about the motorbike at hand
Anyone who gets in touch with you with an eye to possibly purchasing your motorbike could have various questions to ask about it. It's not going to instil them with confidence if you are constantly nervous and unsure as they fire question after question; therefore, you should thoroughly research lots of relevant information about your bike, before having it ready to reel off for any interested parties.
What information exactly? We would suggest the motorbike's make and model, year of manufacture, engine size and mileage. You could also mention the colour, should a potential buyer ask you about the bike before having seen it.
