Stepping into a dealership can feel a little intimidating for new to powersports. The world of cars, motorcycles, and recreational vehicles is is traditionally a male-occupied space, so you might feel like a fish out of water while browsing or making a purchase.
LET'S EXPLORE HOW TO BUY A CAN-AM RYKER OR SPYDER AND TACKLE THE DEALERSHIP EXPERIENCE WITH CONFIDENCE.
TIP 1: COME PREPARED
Before your visit, put together a list of questions about the 3-wheelers or products you're curious about. A good place to start is the website, where you'll be able to browse through different models, available colours, unit prices, accessories, and more. When it comes to questions, don't hold back: remember that the dealership staff is there to help. You should also be able to quickly summarize what you're looking for during this particular visit – kind of like an elevator pitch, in a sentence or two. Are you just looking? Are you ready to buy a 3-wheel motorcycle? How will this vehicle fit your lifestyle? Is it only for weekend road trips or everyday use? This info will help the staff best serve you.
TIP 2: BE OPEN ABOUT WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW
Even if you did a bunch of research before your dealership visit, it's okay if you don't understand every aspect of the product info. You should never hesitate to mention things you aren't sure about: asking lots of questions doesn't mean you're inexperienced, it just means you're curious and enthusiastic! One of the best ways to get to know a vehicle in-depth is getting a full walkaround, so make sure to ask one of the staff members for a product tour.
TIP 3: KNOW WHO YOU'RE WORKING WITH
Sometimes, the rep that will go through the purchase process with you is different from the rep who will get you set up with the proper accessories or riding gear. Don't hesitate to ask a team member to direct you to the right person – that way, you'll get the most relevant and specialized service.
TIP 4: GET YOUR BEARINGS IN ADVANCE
Walking into a space with confidence is much easier if you know your way around. So, before you visit your local 3-wheel motorcycle dealership, get familiar with what awaits you in the showroom.
