Motorcycle purchase & buy back

IF IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE YOU'VE CHECKED OUT THIS PAGE, YOU'LL SEE WE'VE CHANGED MANY THINGS!!  PURCHASE PRICES ARE A BIT HIGHER BECAUSE WE'VE ADDED MORE EXTRAS ON THE BIKES AS PART OF THE BASE PREP !!

NOW AVAILABLE: New and Used/Made-New

KAWASAKI KLR650 and soon HUSKAVARNA bikes!

 

As it is very difficult to find details and reliable specs on many of these unfamiliar models, we soon plan to dedicate a page to each model with all the information found on the web, photos and descriptions from our shop and customers and their travels.

Meanwhile, PLEASE feel free to ask any and every question about these models or the preparation we do!

The most popular  service we offer is to purchase new motorcycles for you here in Peru, prep them for your trip (including racks), and have all the paperwork, license plate and insurance papers done for you by the time you arrive.  When you arrive it only takes a signature to change it over to your name (a requirement to cross borders) instead of the normal 4 to 5 weeks! 

 

Then you can be on your way! 

 

We usually also have a few Used/Made-New motos for sale too, THESE ARE ALL READY TO GO should you make your decision at the last moment!!

The 'BUY-BACK' program works like this:  You purchase one of the New or Used/Made-New motorcycles from the choices below. 

 

Go on your epic trip!!  While you are gone we look for another rider coming to Peru who would like to buy your motorcycle (once we make it new again!). It is like a CONSIGNMENT sale.  Often we find another buyer before you bring it back to us in Huanuco, Peru. If we have not found a buyer by the time you return, it shouldn't be too long.  The UNLIMITED TIME AND KMS BUY BACK price set by the written contract doesn't change.  As soon as the new buyer pays, we pass your BUY BACK price on to you via Paypal!

 

The best part is that the BUY BACK price stays the same, whether you purchased used or new, no matter how long you have it or how many kms you put on it!

 

YOUR bike in YOUR name to cross borders and do with as you wish during and after your ride! If you bring it back to us you can get the better part of your investment back!  Even though AROUND THE BLOCK MOTO ADVENTURES has the lowest moto rental costs  in Peru, this method of you PURCHASING the bike and then SELLING it back through us comes out costing you SO MUCH LESS than what you would pay if you rented, or you paid to ship your own bike to South America (and back)!

We have had VERY GOOD experience (once prepped by us) with these 200cc and 250cc Chinese bikes:

 

WANXIN 200-GY7 (looks like Yamaha TENERE!)

TORQUE 250 (copy of Honda XR250 TORNADO)

TEKKEN 250 ( copy of KTM 390 DUKE)

X-TERRA 200/250 ( for those who like their BMW GS)

TRITON 200/250 (for those looking for more off-road routes)

 

There are NO Chinese bikes over 250cc (yet available in Peru). 

 

We have now prepared 87 of these bikes for foriegners who have ridden them as far as the tip of Chile/Argentina and back, to the Carribean Ocean and back, some of them 2-up with luggage!  So we know they are reliable and can do the job, even at high altitude!

our 'used' motos

Our 'used' motorcycles are ALMOST NEW !!  That is why we call them 'USED/MADE NEW'.  We do a COMPLETE FRAME & ENGINE TEARDOWN & BUILD-UP on them just like we do to a new one. 

 

NEW TIRES, INNER TUBES, NEW BRAKES, NEW WHEEL BEARINGS, NEW STEERING BEARINGS, NEW DRIVE, REBUILT SUSPENSION, REFRESHED ENGINE, and at times even NEW PLASTIC !!

 

These sell for $300 TO $500 LESS than a 'new' one, and don't require the 4-5 weeks to get all the paperwork & license plate !!  They are READY TO GO as soon as you are !!  And the UNLIMITED KMS AND TIME BUY BACK price is the same price as if you had purchased new!

motorcycle prep

On a monthly basis we will update the availablity and price of the NEW motorcycles here in Peru (price can vary from month to month due to the USD/sole exchange).  The prices stated here include:

 

- Full Trip Prep of motorcycle including short break-in period so that you can load it as soon as you arrive and not worry about that.  We break them in with MOTUL 3000 organic oil, then switch to MOTUL 7100 Full Synthetic.

 

- We remove the low quality fork oil and replace it with the BelRay 10W Fork Oil.

 

- We remove the stock steering neck bearings, install conical needle bearings, lubricate and correctly adjust the bearings.

 

-O Ring chain and best ratio sprocket and pinion(s) for the riding you will do in South America.  We even include an extra smaller front pinion for if you want to switch and go trail riding.

 

-Carburator jetted correctly for altitudes you will be traveling and load you will be carrying for the gasoline you will find on your travels so you rarely have to change jets during your whole trip!

 

- Rebuilt exhaust.  All motorcycles get a rebuilt exhaust to aid flow and air/fuel mix especially at altitude. We rebuild it into a free-flowing (but not loud) fiberglass exhaust.  This is necessary to allow you to use the same jetting for almost all altitudes instead of having to re-jet even multiple times per day in the Andes!  Even on the fuel injected models, this adds power and better acceleration.

 

-Every frame nut and bolt removed (many replaced with better quality bolts), Locke-Tite'd and installed with correct torque.  In many cases we will replace (or add to) the standard nut with a nylon insert nut to avoid loosening.

 

-The thin Steel Rims that come on the TORQUE 250, MP250,and TRITON 250 models (and the 18/21 inch wheel upgrade of the X-TERRA 250 model) are replaced with  better  aluminum rims and spokes torqued correctly, so you will not have wheel  issues on your ride.

 

- The TRITON 250, TORQUE 250, and X-TERRA models come with soft motocross style tires that will wear fast, vibrate and limit your speeds on pavement.  INCLUDED in the price is a choice of good quality tires geared to your trip style.

 

- Strong rear and side racks (except on WANXIN 200-V8).  These bikes come some with no rear rack at all, and others with just a postage stamp sized rear rack that is cantilevered off the end of the frame, limiting your load and possibly breaking the rear of the frame if you load it.  We build a solid rear rack to 25cm x 35cm with reinforcing triagulization to the rear footpeg mounts, painted & installed.  Side racks are 40cm x 30cm (with a support behind the tire) that you can tie your soft side bags to or purchase our ready-to-bolt-on our custom-made 24LT Adventure Panniers..  Even if you don't use side bags, these side racks are protection for the bike in a fall!

 

- Aluminum/Plastic barkbuster style handguards on all models (except on WANXIN 200-V8).  There WILL be falls !  Protect your hands in spills or traffic !  Even the bike falling over in soft soil and breaking one of the levers can be critical !

 

- Spring loaded shift lever on the more on/off-road models.  The shift lever that comes stock on these models is solid and short, making it hard to shift with a riding boot.  And a solid shifter, in a fall, can bend in and break a hole in the case!  We replace the stock shift lever with a longer spring loaded one more made for acuating it with a riding boot.

 

-All paperwork costs, (including the cost to tranfer into your name when you arrive, and even if you sell it back to us), license plate and Peruvian SOAT insurance (1 year) required by law.  When you arrive the transfer of ownership process will take less than 1 hour and then you will be ready to ride away and even cross international borders!

 

extras

The 'EXTRAS' are over and above the prices below of the 'Regular Prep' of the motorcycle, but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to get the most out of your trip!  Most of them even raise the BUY BACK price!

 

- Front rack.  This is a small rack above the front headlight and bolts to the front forks.  You can carry a light sleeping bag, tent or bed roll (to give you more seat room), or a small pack for gear/papers/snacks/camera you need to get at along the ride.  Easy to remove yourself when just going out for a joy ride!  Also protects your headlight in a fall.  $25 (installed). The front rack is not possible on the HONDA XRE300 or the YAMAHA XTZ250 TENERE.

 

- Small windscreen.  The X-TERRA 250 and YAMAHA XTZ250 TENERE come with small windscrrens.  If you would like us to custom build and install one on one of the other models, we can do that!  $44  (installed).

 

- Aluminum handlebars.  Yes, some of the Chinese bikes DO vibrate a bit, but the aluminum handlebars take most of that out that your hands don't fall asleep so easily.  $47  (installed).

 

- Aluminum handlebar risers.  Are you tall and/or you like to ride standing?  These solid aluminum 30mm risers make for a MUCH more comfortable ride!  $30 (installed).

 

- Wide pegs.  These provide extra comfort for your feet, especially when standing up!  $22 (custom built),  $66 (factory).

 

- 12v/USB outlet on the handlebars. Easily plug in your GPS and/or phone while you ride!  Also great access for your electric air pump without removing panels to get to the battery!  $21 (installed).

 

- Rimlocks.  Again, if you plan on doing alot of gravel road or sand riding, then these are a MUST so you can run lower tire pressures, yet the tire doesn't spin on the rim ripping out your inner tube valve!  $36 (both, rims prepped to receive them & installed).

 

- Better battery.  If you plan to add extra load to the battery, or do a long or hard ride, we recommend a better quality battery than comes stock with the motorcycle.  Price dependent on motorcycle model (installed).
