‘Get your­self a new bike for less’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING - DON TOCHER Den­mead, Hamp­shire

DEPUTY ED­I­TOR RICHARD NEW­LAND

Per­sonal Con­tract Pur­chase now fi­nances 20-30% of all new bikes sold in the UK, and it’s a method of own­er­ship that is grow­ing fast. But it might not be right for you, so make sure you un­der­stand the ins and outs.

You can have these new bikes for less than you might have ever imag­ined – and what’s more you can have an­other new one in three years’ time, prob­a­bly with­out in­creas­ing your monthly out­lay or hav­ing to find a fresh de­posit.

“I have a Honda Cross­tourer, which I love, and my wife Kim has a Honda MSX125 ‘Grom’, which is fun. I of­ten try bikes from the var­i­ous deal­er­ships that we are blessed to be sur­rounded by in Hamp­shire. I usu­ally en­joy the rides, but only two have left me want­ing to own one; Honda’s CB1000R and CB1100RS – the lat­ter wins!”

Don would be left with plenty of change from his £20,000
