What you need to know before you choose a dirt bike motorcycle?

One advantage of this opportunity is that the price of the coveted model is floating. But we must know and respect some principles that govern any transaction to achieve a good deal.

If you have already tried to sell your bike, it could not escape: many contenders to buy now directly request the floor price of the bike. Often annoying, these observations highlight a trend that has become widespread in our society that no longer buys things at prices where they are displayed.


If, for many, trading is a sure way to avoid scams, we must know the market and patterns of trade have adapted to this practice, and that only the most naive think still a bargain when they have obtained a substantial discount. Therefore the discount earned on a new bike is only rarely to the disadvantage of the concessionaire.

But when it comes to one hand, the cards are redistributed and the case potentially more profitable. First, because many other sites and magazines provide the opportunity to make a first selection of prices in a given model, but mainly because the number of criteria that come into account in this regard is more significant. Mileage falls possible, condition of presentation, maintenance updates and mounted accessories are all good reasons to discuss objectively the price of a used motorcycle. But beware, the art of negotiation has certain rules that must be respected on pain of tougher conditions of sale and, ultimately, not getting what you want.


Good information is the basis of an objective and constructive negotiation. Let’s be clear, the negotiation is not intended to rob the motorcycle seller or make fun of being inflexible in case. It is, rather, a means to adjust the value of the coveted bike in your wallet. And for that, nothing beats a good prior knowledge of the market and of the pattern.

If the document is a good barometer of the value of a hand, it should be considered as an average, a reference, in fact. We must therefore see and know these odds, but not complacency. It is also necessary to notice the frequency of revision of the coveted model, and its defects and other chronic recall campaigns which he could be. This allows knowing the specifics of the model which you are interested and engage in dialogue with the seller on familiar ground.

For example, if someone tells you that a bike has made a small slip on the left, you can, without worry, pass on the cost of this falls on the purchase price. In contrast, a motorcycle very exposed in the lower left engine, it is better to stop the negotiations immediately, because the bike may have suffered from defusing the oil pump. Knowing about it therefore allows both smell bad case, but more importantly, better negotiate.


There are many professionals who specialize in selling used motorcycles. And even if the seriousness and the services they display are often higher than those of individuals, this should in no way prevent you from negotiating your purchase. The first question that comes into play in this negotiation is that the resumption of your old bike. You should know that in case of recovery, you are not obliged to accept the rate the dealer offers and you can fully discuss also the amount of that recovery.

If you do not get back to bike, be judicious in your trading. It may well be more interesting to obtain from a professional, an extended warranty on a model dating back several years, rather than trying to glean any cost a few euros extra. In this case, you will also be possible to obtain a gift, accessory, like a bubble high or carpet tank for example. Note that the rates proposed by professionals are always higher than those applied by individuals, but this does not in any way to negotiate the sale price depending on the model covet rating.

For even if the review of a machine sold by a professional is a guarantee of quality and quietness, it does not inspire you to rush to acquire the occasion in question. Do not hesitate, and to return several times in a professional and learn the time it spent your time in the franchise. Play shows can also help you get better discounts on a model whose professional wants to get rid of. But attention, to negotiate face to a professional, better again, although knowing about it.


Buy a motorcycle to an individual requires above all to demonstrate the method. For, unlike a professional maintenance done on a motorcycle especially should be checked carefully by you. And if it is not uncommon for a professional set up a new tire on one occasion, an individual, however, you rather sell his motorcycle in the state. Negotiating with an individual can approach one another in several ways, with, as a reference, the official symbol. In addition to the mileage of the machine, its general appearance is a first line of negotiation. Any machine scratched, damaged, or a fall must be a serious negotiation. If your seller refuses to discuss this point, it is unnecessary to go further.

Secondly, the state supplies can provide a field large enough to negotiate. Especially if a big car or a sport. For the price of a kit chain or a pair of tires is often high on such machines. Beyond these essentials, you can always bring the discussion more secondary elements. It may include any accessories mounted on the bike. If it has a muffler adapted for example, you may request to retrieve the original. If the seller does not, it restricts the negotiation. But otherwise, you can also vote in favor of the original pot, and then review the sale price.

Same for the rest of the accessories, as if for many sellers, these elements add value to an opportunity, in fact, this is primarily a solid ground for negotiation. Finally, for a used motorcycle located far from home, you can sometimes get the seller to share travel costs.
