I am thinking about purchasing a bike online from Amazon.com. I am just looking for some clarification on the pros and cons of purchasing a motorbike online.

Thank you!

Have you ever bought a vehicle before ? It's not quite like buying a book or a lamp or furniture.

In general, you have to be VERY careful.
Phone call first.
Then inspect it in person......AT the residence of the seller. And never go alone.
Never buy sight unseen and don't transfer money electronically.

If you are under 20 years old, find at least one person over 20 who you trust to advise you.

You are wise to be cautious.

Online might be okay if it is close enough to see it in person and close the deal in person. Other than that, no darn way.

I would take precautions like paying after seeing the item in person and confirming the seller's reputation by emailing past customers.
