Tips to buy used motorbike

7 Replies



Do you guys have some tips about how to buy used motorbike in Jakarta? Motorbike is the best vehicle for Jakarta I supposed, but I won't get a new one as next year I'll move to the Philippine. Where's the best dealer for used vehicle in town?

The documents are the most important thing, check everything and make sure they are complete and original. Continue by driving test to check if the motorbike is still in a good condition. Don't forget to bargain, you can bring friends (local) to help you. Be more careful Chris. 1377684255

If I may suggest, buy a new one. It's safer and guaranteed. My Indonesian friend had an unpleasant experience buying a used motorcycle, a lot of things needed to be repaired by then. You really have to watch out of fraud.

Many thanks for the advise, I know vehicle machine generally so it should be okay. Do you know some kind of dealers or showrooms for used motorbike?

Have you heard about or they have long list of used vehicle, you only need to put the type of vehicle you want to check in the search, they'll lead you the the category you need. It's free and effective enough. But then again you need to be careful of all kind of scams.

Did you ever consider buying one from someone who has defaulted on their installments? The financing companies should be glad to  offload a second hand motorcycle for much less than its actual worth.

Mario, where can I get it? It will be a good option to have cheaper motorbike in good condition, isn't it? What about the legality, anyway?
