Buy a used bike in the following scenarios:-

Buy a Used Bike: Four Scenarios to Consider

  1. You don’t know how to ride a bike.

If you’re yet to learn how to ride, then there are good chances that you might fall or scrape things. Even if not, you will use the clutch-gear-accelerator in the wrong way. Which will harm the bike and its engine.

  1. You have budget constraints.

Do remember that in most cases- the more you pay, the better you get. But since that is the constraint, it’s better to go for the used one if you need one. Try to buy less used and relatively new bikes. Buy a bike with less cc which is cheaper to buy, own, and maintain. But bear in mind that used bikes will need frequent visits to service stations compared to new ones.

  1. You’re not going to use it for more than 2 years.

Time flies. So does 2 years. New bike value will depreciate a lot in the initial years. So it makes sense to buy a used bike in this case and sell it later at a little lesser amount.

  1. You are getting a really good deal on a used bike.

If you are finding a great deal from your friend/family on a used vehicle then you can consider the provided- you know the bike, is relatively new, is in good condition and you like that bike.

In other good cases- Buy a new bike.

Why?

  1. The price difference between used and new bikes is less, unlike cars.
  2. You have the freedom to choose the model you love. That is too in the color you like!
  3. For the extra money you pay- you get the peace of mind. You don’t need to worry about the previous ownership, defects… Etc. Even if the new bike has any fault it will be repaired free of cost.
  4. The new bikes will have better brakes, better stability, planted tires, better suspensions, and new technologies. Which will save you in panic situations. On the road, anything can happen. And you know- safety is above all. What’s the point, if you save 30k and spend 30k at the hospital?
  5. New bike feel. It’s a pleasure- to go and bring a new bike from the showroom, to ride on a smooth engine, and to flaunt your friends.
