Motorcycle Finance

Purchasing a motorcycle is a major financial decision that requires careful consideration. The purchase price alone can be quite high depending on the make, model and condition of the motorcycle. In addition to the initial outlay, owning and operating a motorcycle involves significant ongoing expenses such as maintenance, insurance, tax and fuel costs.

For many individuals and businesses, paying the full purchase price upfront is simply not feasible. This is where motorcycle financing can provide a valuable solution. By securing financing, buyers can spread out the cost of the motorcycle over time through a loan or lease. This improves cash flow and makes motorcycle ownership more accessible and affordable.

There are several financing options to choose from, each with their own pros and cons. Loans allow you to borrow money to directly purchase the motorcycle, while leases allow you to pay a monthly fee to use it without taking full ownership.

With our help, you can explore your best option based on factors like tax implications, financial goals, and future plans for the motorcycle.

The Different Finance Options Available for a Motorcycle

If you want to buy a motorcycle in the UK, you have several finance options to choose from. Each option has its own features, advantages, and disadvantages. Depending on your personal and financial circumstances, you can choose the one that suits you best:

Motorcycle Finance

Motorcycle finance is a form of leasing, where you pay a monthly fee to use the motorcycle, but you do not own it. The monthly fee is based on the depreciation of the motorcycle over the lease term, and the residual value at the end of the lease. The residual value is the estimated value of the motorcycle at the end of the lease, which is agreed upon at the start of the contract.

Motorcycle finance is similar to personal contract hire, which is a type of vehicle leasing that allows you to use the vehicle for a fixed period of time, usually 2-4 years.

At the end of the lease, you have three options, you can either:

Motorcycle Loan

A motorcycle loan is a form of credit, where you pay a deposit and then monthly instalments to buy the motorcycle over a fixed period of time. The monthly instalments include both the principal and the interest, and the interest rate is usually fixed.

The motorcycle is the security for the loan, which means that if you fail to make the payments, the lender can repossess the motorcycle. This is similar to hire purchase, which is a type of vehicle finance that allows you to own the vehicle at the end of the contract, after paying a final option to purchase fee.

The final payment is usually the same as the monthly instalment, plus a £10 option to purchase fee. This fee is a legal requirement, and it transfers the ownership of the motorcycle from the lender to you.

Motorcycle loans and finance may have some differences from hire purchase and asset finance, such as:

Additional Motorcycle Finance Options

If you want to buy a motorcycle in the UK, you have some other finance options to consider. Each option has its own features, advantages, and disadvantages. Here are some of them:

Hire Purchase with Balloon Payment

Hire purchase with balloon payment is similar to a motorcycle loan, but with a twist. Instead of paying equal monthly instalments, you pay lower monthly instalments and a larger final payment, known as the balloon payment. The balloon payment is usually 25% to 50% of the purchase price of the motorcycle, and it is agreed upon at the start of the contract.

The disadvantage is that you have to pay more interest than a motorcycle loan, and you have to save up for the balloon payment or find another source of finance. The balloon payment is usually the same as the agreed percentage of the purchase price.

Personal Contract Hire

Personal contract hire is a leasing option, where you pay a deposit and monthly instalments, based on the depreciation and the residual value of the motorcycle. You do not own the motorcycle, but you can use it for a fixed period of time, usually 2-4 years. You may have to stick to a mileage limit.

At the end of the contract, you have two options. You can either return the motorcycle to the lender and walk away, or extend the contract for another term.

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)

PCP is a flexible leasing option, where you pay a deposit and lower monthly instalments, based on the depreciation and the residual value of the motorcycle. You can own, return, or part-exchange the motorcycle at the end of the contract, by paying, avoiding, or using the residual value as a deposit. PCP has lower monthly payments and more options than personal contract hire, but higher interest and a large final payment.

Importantly, these are general guidelines and examples. When it comes to your own motorcycle finance and the costs involved, the specifics will vary based on the motorcycle’s specifications and the road regulations in your country. Always consult with a financial advisor, such as us at Clifton Private Finance, or a legal expert before making any decisions.

What Happens at the End of a Motorcycle Finance Plan?

At the end of a motorcycle finance plan, you have different options depending on the type of finance you have chosen. Here are the possible scenarios:

The option that you choose will depend on your preferences and circumstances. For example, if you want to own the motorcycle at the end of the term, you might prefer a loan. If you want to have a newer and more efficient motorcycle, you might prefer a lease.
