Yes, you probably think that you have the most beautiful, meticulously maintained beauty on two wheels, but looks alone will not help you sell it. Let’s face it, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and you will need to do a few things to get buyers’ attention.
Here are our top 3 tips for selling your motorcycle fast:
- Set a competitive price for your motorcycle and be ready to negotiate. Keep in mind that online buyers are price comparison shoppers, which means that they probably have a pretty good idea of how much your bike is worth. Use Kelley Blue Book, NADA Motorcycle Guides, and the ChopperExchange Bike Price Report to determine the current retail value of your motorcycle. Any “extras” that you have added to your motorcycle after purchase may increase your asking price, but it is important to remember that such extras are only worth a fraction of their original cost. Do not fall victim to inflating your asking price because of all the “extras”.
- Describe your motorcycle in detail. Yes, more is better when you are writing the description for your motorcycle ad. Online buyers want to know if you are the original owner, if you have maintained the motorcycle, how your motorcycle was stored, if you have added any “extras”, and why you are selling the motorcycle. Try to use short sentences and bullet points, so your description is easier to read. This is your opportunity to really “sell” your motorcycle and tell potential buyers why it is the best motorcycle available for sale.
- Upload at least 10 good, clear photos of your motorcycle. We recommend that you do a 360-degree walk around your motorcycle and take photos of every angle. A close-up photo of the paint and odometer is very important. Good photos allow online buyers to better visualize your motorcycle and take mental ownership of it.
Following these 3 tips will make your motorcycle stand out and sell faster.
