4 of the Best Recommendations for Buying a Motorcycle

    #1 February = Short Month = Good For Your Pocket…

    When is the best time to buy your new motorcycle? Believe it or not, it’s February!!!

    February is 8% shorter than other months so sales people with quotas to meet may be more willing to cut a deal on your new motorcycle, especially at the end of the month if they are on the bubble.

    #2 Winter Time…

    The cold, short days of February and the simple fact motorcycles aren’t on people’s minds at the time, mean empty dealership showrooms. Dealers are often willing to give a good price on last year's model and are often looking to just move a motorcycle to bring in cash during the winter.

    #3 When People Aren’t Shopping Anymore…

    Much of a motorcycle dealer’s profit doesn’t come from bike sales, a lot of it comes from services and accessories. People are no longer buying Christmas gifts or things of that nature so dealers are often slashing the price on your new motorcycle to bring in some cash.

    #4 When to Get the Most for Your Motorcycle…

    At this time of year, dealers are looking to get in used motorcycles to ensure their supply will meet demand come the springtime rush where buyers will often pay more for their motorcycle. This means that in February, you can get more for your used one.
