Ask 10 different people why they’ve chosen to buy a used motorcycle rather than a new one, and chances are you’ll receive 10 entirely different answers. Some don’t have the credit score necessitated by the lending institution, others don’t like to be the “guinea pig” for new technology, and several actually see the good in honing their skills aboard a bike that’s not shiny, new, and still owned by the bank. Buying a used motorcycle isn’t without its own set of complexities, however, not the least of which include the time it takes to sort through various ads and the risks that go along with buying preowned machinery. Remember, not everyone who thinks they’re a mechanic is a mechanic. In an attempt to circumvent some of these hurdles, we’ve compiled a list of 27 inexpensive used bikes that are worth looking at if you’re ready to head down the pre-owned path.
