What to Know When Buying a Motor Vehicle
Buying from motorcycle dealers for the first time can be tricky. It is difficult to know what prices and specifications to look out for. This video gives some tips on what to do when going through a motorcycle showroom for the first time.
Motorcycle stores want the best price for their product, but it is important to know what is worth the price tag. Dealerships might tell you the listed price is the limit of what they can do. Continue to barter with dealers to find the lowest price that they are willing to give. Understand that some bikes will be sold at their listed price, and find a budget to stick to.
Find out if the motorcycle dealership trades other vehicles. Some shops will take ATVs, snowmobiles, and dirt bikes. This can be a way to get rid of old motor vehicles and help pay for a new one.
Some extra and add-on fees are not disclosed at the beginning of the transaction. Make sure to ask about any fees before agreeing to purchase a bike. Understand that financing a bike might be bumped up when done in-house. Go to the bank for an interest rate before going into the dealership.
