Motorcycle Loan - Avoid These Mistakes

Feb 25, 2008
You may need to seek for a motorcycle loan when you are planning to buy a motorcycle. However, there are some common mistakes people will make when seeking for such loans. In fact, avoiding these mistakes is very important otherwise you will just make the wrong decision.

Many people will try to look for a motorcycle before they go for the advices on the loans. In fact, they should try to consult the lender first. If you consult the lender first, you will know that approximately how much loan you can get and you will have a rough idea on the budget. For example, you your know that you will probably be able to get a loan of $10,000, it will be just a waste of time to consider a motorcycle which is selling at $15,000.

Beside, you should compare different options for the loan. Usually, the salespeople in the motorcycle showroom will try to persuade you to get the loan as soon as possible and in such case they will try to push you to adapt a loan with higher interest rate. They do this because they think that they will lose the chance of making sales if they let you to find the loan yourself. However, you should never fall into this trap.

You should be sure that you completely understand all the terms regarding the loan before you go for it. You should never make the decision based on promotional advertisements. For example, you may be able to borrow using a credit card with a low interest rate. However, the advertisement may not tell you that the low interest rate will only be good for 12 months. If you cannot pay off in this short period of time, the interest rate may become very high.

Borrowing too much money can also be a problem. You should have a rough idea on how much you can afford and how much you are able to repay each month. However, the fact is that some buyers will not consider this thoroughly before they make the final decision. This is especially true for young and first time buyers. They may want to get a motorcycle that cost $15,000. However, they do not realize that getting a loan to that amount will create problems to them financially (after buying the motorcycle).

In order to enjoy the life of motorcycling, you should try your best to avoid the above mistakes. If you can do that, you will find that it will not be too difficult for you to get the second or even the third motorcycle.
