There are a few key things you want to consider when listing your used motorcycle for sale. Check out the tips below to help you get the best possible offer for your motorcycle.
1. Photos – We recommend seven high-quality photos. Consider lighting and framing when taking your photos. Remember these pictures affect the value of your motorcycle offer. It makes you money to take good photos. Whomever buys your motorcycle will appreciate it too.
We suggest you photograph the front, rear, and both sides of your motorcycle. We also encourage you to take an up-close photo of the front and rear tires. This is critically important. Also, take the time to wash your motorcycle. If a potential buyer receives pictures of a dirty motorcycle, they will question the overall the condition of the motorcycle.
2. Be honest - Always be up front when marketing your motorcycle. If there is damage, disclose it and photograph it up close. If there are mechanical issues with the motorcycle, disclose them. Most motorcycle enthusiasts are experts at detecting mechanical issues. Your buyer is going to carefully examine your motorcycle when they purchase it. There is nothing worse than surprises. Treat your buyer like you would want to be treated if you were buying a motorcycle of your own.
3. Modifications - List all the modifications on your motorcycle. It is important your buyer has a crystal-clear picture of what they are buying. The clear the picture, the better the offer to buy your motorcycle.
