Riders Share is providing owners the opportunity to cash in on their motorcycles and the perfect excuse to buy another.
Riders Share, the largest motorcycle sharing marketplace, announced today that it would pay an extra $250 to owners who list an additional 2015 or later model motorcycle and perform three rentals with it before October 14, 2021.
According to Riders Share, the motorcycles and vehicles that perform the best on the platform are adventure bikes, especially BMWs, Ducati Monster and Scrambler models, Harley-Davidson Road and Electra Glides, Indian Chieftains, Challenger and Roadmasters. Can-Ams and Urals are also very popular. They suggest researching the platform in your local market for pointers on which late model motorcycles are currently underrepresented, and therefore the most likely to meet the three rentals deadline.
Riders Share also has a referral program, which allows users to provide $50 in free credits to friends to allow them to experience the site and book their first rental, thus streamlining the opportunity to get paid for owning a motorcycle.
“Historically, purchasing a motorcycle hasn’t been viewed as a good investment, but we are aiming to change that with the Riders Share platform,” said Guillermo Cornejo, CEO of Riders Share. “We have helped many of our users turn their motorcycles into incredible financial investments, returning as much as 2,800% in 3 years by listing their motorcycles and utilizing the peer-to-peer platform. Riders Share users have been able to start businesses based on the volume rentals they are performing on the platform. It truly is the power of the peer-to-peer platform.”
I can report, from first-hand experience, that this is more than just marketing hype. I recently rented a 2021 BMW R 1250 GS through Riders Share and was surprised to find that the owner of the bike I rented, one of the early adopters on the site, had subsequently built a fleet of 28 motorcycles. He also explained that he managed to pay off his first two bikes in just two months and is considering giving up his IT business to focus on Riders Share.
