Buying a motorbike?

Read more
  • Once you learn how to ride a motorbike and have the safety gear, getting your own bike is the next step. There are many things to consider to ensure you get the motorbike that best fits your needs and abilities. There are a lot of options on Gumtree, so take your time and really get to know what motorbikes offer and what you need most.
  • What Size Do You Need?

    Motorbikes come in different sizes, and your weight and height play a role in the right size for you. When you are out shopping, get on the bike so you can really get a feel for it. You want to ride without overstretching your body or being cramped up.
  • How Much Experience Do You Have?

    Many people want to jump on a bike with a lot of performance without considering how well they can handle this. Look at engine sizes smaller than 600cc because this provides a good amount of handling and enough performance to get you where you need to go. Once you improve your skills, you can look for a bigger, faster motorbike.
  • How Much Are You Willing to Spend?

    Your budget is a major factor, especially if you are buying a used motorbike. You have to consider the initial cost of the bike and if it will cost anything to get it road ready. Many new riders choose a used option so there is less worry about minor damage as you are learning to ride. This is also a great way to learn more about the mechanics and upkeep of your motorbike because you can fix things as they need it.
    Buying your first motorbike is no easy feat because most new riders are not familiar with all the intricacies that come with buying a bike. Consider the basic necessities and features, and compare these to your experience as a rider to choose the motorbike that will serve you best.
  • How Will the Bike Be Used?

    Think about the miles you will put on the bike and whether you are travelling a lot or just getting around your neighbourhood. If you are doing a lot of riding, comfort is important because you do not want back or neck strain from a bike that requires you to excessively bend forward to ride it. It is best to find a bike that allows for a more upright ride until you get used to handling this type of vehicle.
