MIC Guide to Buying or Selling a Used Motorcycle

Some say that there’s nothing quite like the feeling of rolling a shiny, factory-fresh motorcycle off the dealership lot. But let’s be honest – we’d be cheating ourselves as riders if that’s all we lived for and second-hand bikes offer that same thrilling feeling of entering the unknown.

Great deals are plentiful in the used market, but there are a lot of variables to consider when going with a used bike. The Motorcycle Industry Council would like help ease this process by supplying buyers and sellers with some helpful tips with its Guide to Buying or Selling a Used Motorcycle (available for free download here).

Buyers should ask the seller key questions about the history, such as: Has the motorcycle been involved in any crashes? Does the bike have service records?

A brief test-ride, along with using the checklist provided by MIC, can help buyers move forward with confidence when assessing the condition of the bike. The checklist highlights items and conditions to inspect before, during and after the test ride.

The MIC Guide to Buying or Selling a Used Motorcycle includes tips for private party motor vehicle transactions and guidance for completing the change-of-ownership processes. These tips range from making sure the bike will be covered by insurance if the deal is secured, reviewing and transferring ownership documents and ensuring that the buyer receives all items the seller promised.

Also included are tips for any would be seller, making sure that the bike can make the best first impression it can, along with copying the potential buyers information properly before allowing a test ride.

The Motorcycle Industry Council’s Guide to Buying or Selling a Used Motorcycle is available here in two versions: standard 8.5’’ x 11’’ PDF format for printing, and a linear PDF variant for mobile use.

The MIC is headquartered in Irvine, Calif., with a government relations office in metropolitan Washington, D.C. First called the MIC in 1970, the organization has been in operation since 1914. Visit the MIC at mic.org.
