Need help buying used motorcycle first time In Toronto, Canada.


Well-known member
Hello People and Enthus,

I am planning to buy a used motorcycle for next season now. I need few heads up from you guys about what to look out for and what are the documents and procedure to buy a used motorcycle.

I am going to visit few people to see the bike next week.

What are things from A-Z I need to take care of.

Please guide me through this.

Thanks a lot.

Step 1: Make sure you can get (and afford) insurance on it before buying it.

I know last fall you were looking at a Hayabusa on an M2 as a new rider. I'm hoping you've moved on from that?

As for the actual purchase, This thread in the forum Gatekeeper posted above is an excellent resource.

Mechanically speaking, find somebody who knows motorcycles and how to work on them, take them with you when you go to look at a bike, otherwise you are going to need to familiarize yourself with the issues to look for in a used motorcycle. Or, you could just buy a new brand name motorcycle that comes with an OEM warranty, that's a relatively safe bet with very few surprises ;)

+1 on investigating insurance coverage costs prior to purchase of anything.
