Can You Buy a Motorcycle Directly from a Manufacturer?
So, you’re interested in purchasing a motorcycle directly from the manufacturer. Unfortunately, motorcycle manufacturers typically only sell to dealers.
Your next best option is to order your motorcycle from an authorized dealership. Simply visit the manufacturer’s website to find authorized locations. You can also use our dealer locator to find a dealer near you.
A similar commonly asked question is, “Can I pick up my motorcycle directly from the factory?” This varies among companies, but it’s also highly unlikely.
For instance, if you plan to buy your motorcycle from a Harley dealer, your bike will be delivered to the dealership. And, the dealer will schedule a time for you to pick it up.
Also, don’t forget to coordinate your motorcycle’s transport from the dealership to your home. You can check out this post on the top four ways to transport a motorcycle for advice.
