Buy A Motorcycle In Colombia

Ready to take a motorcycle trip in South America? Here are your options: 

Want to travel in Colombia for more than a month? Want to save on motorcycle shipping costs? Want to drive a motorcycle to Ecuador? What about Argentina? If this sounds like something that you are interested in doing our Colombia Motorcycle Buy Back Program may be for you.


We can sell you a motorcycle of your choice, and then purchase the machine back at a pre-arranged price. Generally, if you buy a used motorcycle from us, we will buy it back between 40 to 60% of the purchase price.

Option 1 - Motorcycle Buy Back Program

Colombia ADV Motorcycle Buy Back Program - Buy an adventure prepped motorcycle in Colombia then sell it back when you're done.

Option 2 - Buy A Motorcycle In Colombia

Want to own your own motorcycle in Colombia? It can be a real hassle buying a bike down here. Let us help you out.

Here's how it works:


  1. Purchase - Purchase one of the New or Used/Made-New motorcycles. We will then prep it for your trip. Depending on what you are interested in we can add side-racks, a top case, upgraded tires and lighting. We will even take you around to buy motorcycle gear and helmets.

  2. Paperwork - We have all the paperwork, license plate and insurance papers done for you by the time you arrive. It only takes registering with the Colombian National Transit Registry and a few signatures to change it over to your name. Once that's done the bike is yours. No hassles with trying to buy a used bike in Colombia, no strange stories or incorrect paperwork. We will have a high quality, adventure ready motorcycle ready to go with a free and clear title so you can start your South America motorcycle adventure right away and with no problems.

  3. Travel - Go on your epic trip!! 

  4. Buy Back - While you are gone we look for another rider coming to Colombia 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 Medellin, Colombia. 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!

Mechanical Inspection - It goes without saying that you will want to keep your motorcycle in good working condition, not just for your ride, but for the BUY BACK. When the motorcycle comes back we check it over and pull the head and the cylinder to see if there is any damage due to overheating or low quality lubrication. Scarred valve rocker arms or camshaft and deep cylinder grooves always tell the story. We also check out the electrical system to make sure that it hasn't been totally destroyed by driving around through salt water or the salt flats in Bolivia. If there is damage, we will assess the cost of the damage and discount that from the agreed buy back amount. As said earlier; we are not concerned with wear items that will be replaced anyway or rubbed off paint.
