How to buy a motorbike
Once you have learned to ride a motorbike and feel as though you are comfortable being out on your own, you can start to consider buying a bike of your own. A motorbike is a considerable financial investment, so you need to be sure that the bike you buy is the right one for you, and one which will keep you safe and be easy enough to ride that you don’t have to worry about being out of control on it.

- Start with a budget. Before you even start looking at bikes, work out exactly how much you can afford to spend on your bike. Don’t look at bikes first to see how much it costs for the sort of bike you want, as this can cause you to overspend, simply work out exactly how much you have in your budget and go from there.
- Work out what type and size of bike is appropriate. Not everyone can easily ride every type of motorbike. If you are quite small, then a larger bike may be too difficult for you to handle, whilst more professional bikes may not be suitable for a beginner. It may be worth going to a showroom and asking to try a variety of bikes to see what makes you the most comfortable.
- Decide whether you want a new or used bike. Work out the pros and cons of new vs. used bikes and base your decision on what is going to last long enough for you, and still be in budget. There is no problem with buying a used bike if it is still in good condition.
- Look to various sources. You can go to a motorcycle showroom to see new bikes, but you can also look online for various ads for both new and used bikes across a range of prices. Make sure you see the bike before you put any money down, though, so that you can be sure this is the right bike for you.
