Buy and sell back
We offer a motorcycle buyback option to riders intending an extended trip in Switzerland or Europe.
Our experience with long-term riders has shown us, that a lease does not match the needs of travelers who wish to spend several months riding a bike in Switzerland or Europe. That is why we provide motorbikes for this category of traveler. The principle is simple, you tell us your budget and the type of motorcycle you're looking for, and we do the rest. On arrival the bike is waiting for you, registered and insured. At the end of your journey you return the motorbike and we buy it back for a pre-determined price.
Why choose this option?
When you really want to take your time exploring this great country by motorcycle, renting a top notch motorcycle from a rental company by the day, can become very expensive. So we offer you any model available from our fleet, for any period of time; from 2 months to 1 year at a cost far below rental rates.
Motorcycle Buy back versus classic rental
If you rent a motorcycle from us you pay one fee and have total peace of mind. When you "buy" a bike from us you must take good care of it if you want us to buy it back at the agreed price. Things like tires, servicing and other maintenance becomes your responsibility because you own the bike. This is the trade-off for the large savings you will gain against a rental.
Cost of motorcycle sell and buyback
We can sell you a motorcycle of your choice, and then purchase the machine back at a pre-arranged price. Generally, if you buy a used motorcycle from us, we will buy it back between 40 to 50% of the purchase price.
The most common price range for our buybacks is between 2 000 € and 5000 €. This is your upfront cost; we then give you a percentage of this back, based on the period, the distance traveled and the model of motorbike (see examples below). You should weight this expenses against the cost of shipping your own bike to Europe which runs about 3500 €, plus the hassle of having to deal with customs and insurance.
We are constantly adding new bikes. It's a working progress - bear with us!
