Find the right ride

If you’re looking to buy a motorcycle, a good place to start is with some research. What are you planning on using it for – travelling to work or long commutes? Do you plan to use it for leisure or adventure on the weekends? You’ll want to have a think about what model you’re after as well as what cc the engine should be, whether you’re buying a new or used motorcycle and how much it will cost, including the consumables such as tyres and oil. 

Have a budget in mind

Before buying your new motorcycle, you might want to go through the numbers and set a budget you can stick to. Our savings calculator and savings accounts could help you reach your goal. If you’re thinking about getting a motorcycle loan, you can compare our personal loans to find the loan for you. We also have a personal loan calculator which can help you understand how much your motorcycle loan repayments could be.
Consider any extra costs in your budgeting process including motorcycle riding gear – helmet, jacket, pants and gloves. Think about how you’ll pay for operating costs like insurance, fuel and routine maintenance, as well as your loan repayments.

Buying tips

When you’re buying a motorcycle, take it for a test ride to see if you like riding it. If it’s a second-hand motorcycle, consider getting an expert to check for mechanical issues too. Remember to check that there is no outstanding finance on the motorcycle.
