Some things in life are unavoidable, including motorcycle depreciation. Good news is, there are steps you can take to avoid total disappointment at the dealer as well as in private resale situations. For starters, familiarize yourself with the depreciation value of motorcycles so you don’t feel like the world is caving in around you when you get your first trade-in offer. If you haven’t fully assessed the demand for your bike in the current market, you may be in for a rude awakening. 

Next, and most importantly, put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. Sure, you may have poured your heart and soul into this one ride, but if that doesn’t resonate with a buyer (and, most of the time, it won’t), you may have to make some adjustments to get your motorcycle’s best resale offer.  

Do you want the highest trade-in value for your ride but still aren’t sure what’s affecting the depreciation rate on motorcycles in your garage? Take this motorcycle depreciation quiz and find out!
