Confederate Motor Company has introduced a Certified Previously Owned Motorcycles program. According to the company, motorcycles traded in at Confederate are carefully examined by the factory technicians and after getting the seal of approval are offered for sale with a limited 90 day warranty. Although numerous high end auto companies have programs like this, it’s rare to see it in the motorcycle business. Suzuki recently announced the Suzuki Select™ Certified Pre-owned Motorcycle Program which also offers used bikes and a 90 day warranty through certain dealerships. Some buyers feel better with a factory warranty of some type and these programs take a little of the guess work out of a motorcycle purchase.
The first bike offered by Confederate under this program is a 2004 F124 Hellcat. Since this bike has only 339 miles and looks brand new, you could be a Hellcat owner, too, and no one needs to know you didn’t pay full price.
With this program now out of the bag, it’s only a matter of time before more companies offer something similar. How can they avoid it? Looks like a good idea to me.
