Why Buying Used Bikes in Pakistan is a Better Idea?

With ever increasing prices and dwindling sales, the Pakistani automobile industry is going through one of the worst phases. If you are looking to buy a new motorcycle this year, buying a used bike in Pakistan would be a better decision. A used bike not only saves money but also comes with many other advantages. 

Let’s see the top benefits of buying used bikes.

Budget-Friendly Choice

No one can deny that buying a used bike is a budget-friendly choice. Depending upon the model, year and condition, you can get a motorcycle nearly half of the price of a new one. Buying a second-hand motorcycle also helps save other expenses like registration cost, first time taxes, and many more.

Bike prices are frequently increasing as some manufacturers have raised the prices 5-6 times this year. Here are the price differences of the popular bikes since the start of 2022.

The prices of some bikes are even up by nearly 50%. So, if you had saved about 2 lac rupees to buy a Yamaha YB125Z as per its price in Jan 2022, now you cannot buy it as its ex-factory price has jumped to Rs.273,000. 

So, getting a used motorcycle is a better option now as you can buy a used YBZ 125 for as low as Rs.110,000. Other bikes will also cost you less depending upon their model, year, condition, etc.

Suitable for Learners

If it is your first bike and you are still in the learning phase, a used bike will give you a lot of confidence. You won’t have to worry about scratching your bike. The fear of an accident and damaging your new bike will not help you learn how to ride a motorcycle.

So, get a cheap used bike and start learning on it. Afterwards, you may get a new bike if you need one. 

No Need to Wait for Registration

When you purchase a new bike, you’ll have to get it registered, which takes time and money. When you buy a second-hand motorcycle, the number plate is already there. So, you can take it out on the road. It is important to get the vehicle transferred immediately after purchasing it in used condition.
