Are you ready to pull the trigger on a new or used motorcycle? Well, first things first, let’s figure out how much you can afford. Check out our motorcycle loan calculator aboveand estimate how much you can expect to pay down the road.
It’s simple! Just enter your desired loan amount, interest rate and the loan term. Our motorcycle loan calculator will compute your estimated monthly payment based on your inputs.
Loan amount. This should be the entire amount you want to borrow. Include any taxes and fees. Subtract any down payment and/or the value of your trade in, if applicable.
Interest rate. The annual percentage rate (APR) is how much a loan costs. Motorcycles usually have higher interest rates than car loans. The example below shows the APR you may get based on your credit score according to the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA). (The APRs in the table below are just an example. The APR you receive may be different.)
Loan term. This is how long the loan will be. Finance companies may express a loan term in years or months. See below for a years-to-months table.
|FICO credit score||APR|
|Loan term years||Loan term months|

The Blue Book value of a motorcycle is what it’s worth according to such an industry source. You could use Kelley Blue Book to value a motorcycle you want to buy or resale.
