What Are Salvage Bikes?

Are all salvage motorcycles damaged beyond repair? Not at all, those are just bikes that have been damaged either by hail, flood, fire, bad accidents, or many other reasons. That’s why those bikes get the salvage title. Most times, the damage is repairable, and you will see a vast number of salvage motorcycles for sale where you live and on the internet.

For a bike to be deemed salvage, the insurance company might have considered it a total loss with the cost of repairing it being more than 50% of the value of the motorcycle. But damaged bikes are not the only motorcycles labeled as salvage bikes. In some states, stolen and recovered motorcycles also get the salvage title.

The image of a badly damaged beyond repair motorcycle may come to mind when the word “salvage” is mentioned. But that’s not always the case.
