Used purchases welcomed as an affordable option

Sales and demand for used motorcycles and scooters remained buoyant in September overall, despite some dealers reporting a slowdown.

There has been an uptick in stock offers from the public recently as consumers re-evaluate their finances. Opinions vary between dealers regarding the effects of the economy, with some expecting the market to be hindered while others believe it will hold up in view of the shortage of new machines and used purchases being a more affordable option.

Demand for clean machines with low mileage continues to be strong across the board.

Outlook
October started on a mixed note weather-wise, although in general it was mild with some sunny days. Considering the rapidly diminishing daylight hours, and cost of living issues potentially having an increasing effect, Glass’s expects values to soften further across most segments in the coming weeks. The exceptions continue to be mopeds, scooters, smaller capacity machines and off-roaders, where values are expected to remain stable.
