Why sell old bikes ?
If you are using your two wheeler bike (motorcycle / scooter) regularly & maintaining it by regular bike services, you are doing well to your bike. However, after regular use of 2 to 3 years, the bike parts start to decay and there is no two wheeler company warranty cover to replace failed bike parts for free. Then, the two wheeler bike maintenance cost starts rising quickly.
The two wheeler 'old bikes', that lie idle or unused for a long time, start to decay much faster. Many bike parts like bike battery, unpainted iron / exposed bike parts , rubber parts, oil, bike tyres etc decays beyound repair afer sometime especially in coastal / rainy areas. Keeping such a un-used motorcycle or scooty at home means that you are losing more money without knowing it. Also, once the two wheeler bikes original warranty comes to an end, the used bike valuation depreciate very quickly.
Any accident that happen to your used motorcycle or scooty, causes serious impact on the resale price of the second hand bikes . A two wheeler bike that has gone through major bike accident may also face repair or performance challenges like bike handle or chassis bend, which is either very expensive to repair or can’t be mended to original performance level. Selling such accidental second hand "old bike" becomes very difficult and lot of money loss.
Old Bike Sell is had decision , but timely bike selling gives you a number of advantages-
Better two wheeler valuation of your old bikes
No hassle of regular bike repairs or maintenance costs
No expenses on bike insurance every year
The regular replacement of your old used bikes after 2 to 3 years use is a good idea. In such case, a latest new model bike is always updated style & technology and is much more reliable than the old bike that you are using.
With the current two wheeler BS IV norms and other standard upgraded new bike features in place, the old BSIII or BSII bikes will quickly become outdated and lose their resale valuation. New BSIV two wheeler bikes have mandatory AHO (Automatic Headlamp On) feature that switches on the low-beam of your motorcycle/scooty as soon as you turn on the bike. This feature helps the two wheeler bike riders to be spotted easily on the road during the day. One more important feature that comes with the new latest motorcycle bikes is the BS IV emission compliant engine. Supreme Court of India has banned the sale of the BS III vehicles & two wheelers across the country from Ist April’2017, so the manufacturing of these two wheeler bike models are discontinued by two wheeler companies like Honda, Hero, Bajaj etc. This change will impact the resale value of old BS-III two wheeler bikes and the old bikes will quickly lose the bike valuation in the coming months.
