To help you overcome potential indecision when picking out a motorcycle, we comprised the following list to make it easier for you to weigh the pros and cons of each brand.

Honda Motorcycles

Honda was founded in the last 1940s and since then has been well regarded as producing some of the best motorcycles for sale in the USA.

Harley Davidson Motorcycles

Since 1903, Harley Davidson has manufactured gorgeous motorcycles out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. And as you probably know, being able to stay in business for that long speaks volumes in regards to motorcycle quality, as well as durability. 

For example, a wide selection of used Harleys made in the 90’s easily covered about 160k miles. And that was almost three decades ago! 

Pros:

  • Newer models may last well over 200k miles
  • Iconic brand

Yamaha Motorcycles

Starting in 1955, Yamaha makes quite a few powerful machines, motorcycles included. These fast and furious motorbikes are frequently used in racing as they always can be counted on to deliver a speed boost when it is needed most. 

That said, having this type of power at your fingertips can encourage riders to be a bit more aggressive with their Yamahas, potentially leading to a motorcycle having a shorter lifespan.

Pros:

  • Reliable, excessive speed
  • Can last a long time if well-cared for

Cons:

  • Used Yamaha motorcycles over 15k miles typically have loads of wear and tear which can harshly reduce the lifespan of the motorbike

Kawasaki Motorcycles

When looking at for used motorcycles for sale, you would be missing out if you overlooked a Kawasaki. These sleek, sexy motorcycles pack a powerful burst of speed, and other ingenious ingenuity, thanks to the manufacturer.

Kawasaki motorcycles are made by a company that also makes aerospace and defense equipment, among other heavy duty machines. Needless to say, if the previous owner took care of their Kawasaki, it is going to be worth your money. 

Even if the motorcycle you are looking at is a used Kawasaki Ninja.

Pros:

  • Made by a company that also manufacturers aerospace equipment
  • Can be really fun to ride on

Cons:

  • Typically not an inexpensive motorcycle, even if it is used

To recap, Harley Davidsons are an iconic, century old brand known for producing high-quality motorcycles. On the other hand, Yamahas, Hondas, and Kawasakis are made for speed. And although they are durable, previous owners may push these sports bikes into an early grave. 

So, be sure to take that into consideration when buying a used motorcycle, regardless of whether you are purchasing one in Lexington, Kentucky or Charleston, South Carolina.
