Re: buying used motorbike from dealer, MFK

1. If you are unsure and not able to asses the current condition of the vehicle yourself a independent third party is a good idea. I do not know how good TCS is regarding motorcycles.
Can anybody recommend any other services for testing used motorbikes? To help people searching online on this topic, could anybody suggest the names of these services in each of the Swiss languages?

2. This is up to you and the seller. But normal understanding is that a vehicle is roadworthy (that what MFK is about) at time of sale unless specifically noted. Note, that a vehicle may be no longer roadworthy after a few days of use.
In this regard, are dealers under a stronger obligation than private sellers to ensure a vehicle is roadworthy and MFK ready?

I noticed some chips in the paintwork, for example, that don't have any immediate impact on the safety of the bike but if it rusts underneath it could be unsafe in future.
