Once you’ve determined a Harley-Davidson is in your future, you must decide whether to buy from a dealer or a private seller. Some people think buying from a private seller is best because it may be a bit cheaper. While you might be able to save a few bucks, the advantages of buying a used motorcycle from a reputable dealer far outweigh buying one in a private sale. Find out what Yankee Harley-Davidson can do for you and why it makes sense to buy from us.

Buying from a Dealer vs. a Private Sale

Buying a Harley-Davidson is a great choice and purchasing a used or pre-owned Harley makes sense if you’re looking to save some money. After you’ve decided a used motorcycle is right for you, it’s then time to determine whether you should buy it from a dealer or through a private sale. If you’re looking for your choice of Harley-Davidson models, it makes sense to buy from the dealer. Yankee Harley-Davidson has a wide variety of new and pre-owned motorcycles at our dealership in Bristol, CT. When you deal with a private seller, they’ll likely only have one motorcycle for sale. When you visit a reputable Harley-Davidson dealer, they’ll have all the motorcycles you could need in one place. That saves you time and hassle. At Yankee Harley-Davidson, our business is selling motorcycles. Private sellers might have busy schedules you need to work around, and their only motivation is to get as much money as possible for their bike. Read on to learn some additional benefits of buying from a dealer.

The Benefits of Buying from a Dealer

Buying a motorcycle from a dealer means you have a dedicated team to help you find the right vehicle for you. Buying from a private seller might seem like an attractive alternative, but once you consider the pros and cons, you’ll find that buying from a dealer is your best bet. Check out some of the benefits of buying your used Harley-Davidson from a dealership:

  • Reputation – A dealer’s reputation matters. Their goal is to provide a positive experience for their new and current customers.  Dealerships also want to create a trust between dealership and customer, where the customer feels comfortable having their bikes serviced and maintained at the dealership. At Yankee Harley-Davidson, we go above and beyond for our customers to find the right bike for them, and provide a great experience. When you buy a motorcycle from a private seller, they aren’t obligated to fix any problems. They may misrepresent the motorcycle, and you’re buying it as-is. At Yankee Harley-Davidson, we are here to help you in any way that we can, so you can feel confident in your purchase. As a dealer we know that you are buying more than just a bike, it’s a lifestyle. 


  • Financing – One of the most significant benefits of buying a motorcycle from a dealer is that you have in-house financing options available. That means you can make monthly payments for your new or used Harley-Davidson motorcycle. When you buy from a private seller, you’ll likely have to come up with all the cash up front. You’re also up a creek if something goes wrong with the bike. When you buy from a dealer, they’ll work with you to fix any problems, and you’ve likely only paid a small portion of the total price at that time. Dealerships also have more accurate pricing than private sellers do. While you might be able to get a private loan, the interest rate will likely be higher.
