Finance Your Motorcycle

Bike Treads Motorcycle Centre is a trading name of  Biker Emporium LTD which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA no. 795445). We are a Credit Broker, not a Lender and can introduce you to a limited number of lenders. We typically receive a fixed commission calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow, for introducing you to a lender but this does not affect the interest you pay on the agreement, which is set by the lender.


Bike Treads finance is one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to purchase a new or used motorcycle, offering the following products

Conditional Sale (CS)

With conditional sale, you put down a deposit and borrow the remaining cost of the vehicle, paying it back monthly over the term of the agreement. Choose this option if you want to own the vehicle at the end of the agreement. 

The amount you borrow is secured against the vehicle. Repayments are fixed throughout the agreement and spread equally throughout the term, which can be up to five years (60 months). There is no lump sum to repay at the end of the agreement, unless an optional balloon repayment is set. There are some restrictions on which vehicles can have a balloon repayment; where this is allowed, it is payable at the end of the agreed term.

Under the terms of a conditional sale agreement, you have an obligation to pay the title transfer fee and then you become the legal owner of the vehicle.

Hire Purchase (HP)

With hire purchase, you pay a deposit and then the remaining amount borrowed is spread across monthly repayments. Choose hire purchase if you plan to repay the full cost of the vehicle but also want an option to hand it back after your final repayment. 

The amount you borrow is secured against the vehicle. Repayments are fixed throughout the agreement and spread equally throughout the term, which can be up to five years (60 months).  

An optional balloon repayment can be set on a hire purchase agreement. This option has some vehicle restrictions and the balloon repayment is payable at the end of the agreed term. When the final payment is made, you can also choose to pay the ‘option to purchase’ (OTP) fee to become the legal owner of the vehicle.

At the end of the agreement there is no lump sum. Instead, you’ll have two options: 

  • Pay an OTP fee and become the full legal owner of the vehicle
  • Hand the vehicle back to us and walk away. We will remain the legal owner of the vehicle

Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)

Like conditional sale and hire purchase, with personal contract purchase (PCP), you pay a deposit and then the remaining amount borrowed is split into monthly instalments. PCP is great if you want to change or upgrade your car or motorcycle* at the end of the agreement.

With PCP, we guarantee the minimum the vehicle will be worth at the end of your agreement based on the agreed annual mileage and maintenance of the vehicle (any excess mileage and/or damage may incur additional charges). This value is known as the ‘Guaranteed Minimum Future Value’ and by deferring this amount to the end of the term, you could benefit from lower fixed monthly payments compared to our HP and CS products. 

The finance is secured against the vehicle. Repayments are fixed throughout the agreement and spread equally throughout the term, which can be up to four years (48 months).

At the end of the agreement, you’ll have three options:

  • Part-exchange it – use any value left in your vehicle to part-exchange it for a new one
  • Buy it – pay off the final payment (Guaranteed Minimum Future Value plus the Option to Purchase Fee (OTP)) in one lump sum and become the legal owner
  • Hand it back – simply hand back the vehicle and the keys, pay any charges incurred, and walk away
