Motorcycle Loans: How Do They Work? Let Nifty Explain

Are motorcycle loans hard to get?

Motorcycles, the ultimate ‘cool guy’ accessory. Think leather jacket, a set of aviators and Tom Cruise. The pinnacle of ‘cool’. Well, this could be you with motorcycle loans through Nifty…or maybe not. But still, you can’t deny the undeniable cool factor of owning a motorbike. If you’ve been wondering how motorcycle loans work or how to get one, you’ve come to the right place. Enter, Nifty! Your one-stop-shop for all of your small to medium financial needs. Before getting into the nitty-gritty of motorbike loans, let us explain who we are. Check out fast loan options here.

How do motorbike loans work? 

Like most forms of finance, motorcycle loans offer a means to an end. Essentially, when you want to purchase a new motorbike but you don’t have enough to buy it out-right, you seek outside finance to cover the gap. This allows you to get on the road sooner without the months (or even years) of saving you would have had to otherwise put up with. Now, this does come at a cost. Like any business, loan lenders need to make money. The way they usually do this is by charging fees or interest on a given loan. It is this give-and-take relationship that forms the basis for almost all financial business. 

If you are choosing to apply for a motorbike loan, it is also important you understand the differences between secured and unsecured loans. First off, let’s talk about the secured variety. When applying for a secured loan, you will need to borrow the money against an asset that you own. In most cases, this will be a car or other vehicle that you already own. In other cases, the asset you purchased through the loan will then be used for security. Being as it is, the lender then becomes the technical owner of the asset. Whether this is a vehicle or otherwise, it does not mean that you can no longer possess the asset; It just means that if anything were to happen, the lender would become the first entitled entity. 

Unsecured loans are a little different. As with any loan, money borrowed still needs to be repaid at an extra cost. The difference with an unsecured loan is that you do not need to produce an asset to be used as security. There are some downsides to this, however. It is common for the lender to have stricter lending criteria and higher costs for unsecured loans as opposed to secured. This really boils down the risk incurred by the lender. Now that you’ve had a run down, let’s get to what Nifty has to offer!

How can I get motorcycle loans? 

As mentioned earlier, Nifty offers three different loan types; Small, Medium and Large. The beauty of these loans is that they can be used for almost anything! Think motorcycle loans to home renovation loans; dental loans to car repair loans; Nifty has it all! For greater reference, shown below is a break-down of the offered loan types and their respective loan amounts: 

Small Cash LoansUnsecured$300 – $2,000
Medium Personal LoansSecured$2,100 – $4,600
Large Personal LoansSecured$5,000 – $10,000

For a better overview of the costs associated with each loan, scroll up and have a play with our loan calculator. This tool offers a rough insight into the cost for each of our loans. You can also find more detail on our costs page. So, whether you’re looking for a large loan or a small one, Nifty provides the options to suit your needs. Have your eye on a new motorcycle but it’s just out of reach? Apply with Nifty and you can have confidence in knowing you’ll be given a fair go!

What about eligibility?

We like to think we’re pretty easy-going. Because of this, we have aimed to make our application criteria as accessible as possible. There are, however, some cases where we are unable to help. So, before shooting through that motorcycle loans application, take a look at our minimum criteria to make sure you’re all clear: 

  • Over 18-years of age
  • Holder of a valid driver’s license or I.D equivalent
  • Regular income for the last three months
  • Paid into personal bank account accessible via internet-banking 
  • Have both an active mobile number and email address 

That’s it! If you tick yes to all of the boxes, simply scroll up to start your application for motorbike loans! You could be hitting the road on a new bike in no time.

Motorcycle loans for people on Centrelink

Since you have gotten this far, you may be wondering to yourself “can I still get motorcycle loans on Centrelink?” Well, you’re in luck! Nifty is more than happy to assess client’s who are receiving Centrelink benefits. Whether you’re getting partial or full benefits, we may still be able to help. In the essence of full disclosure, however, there are some benefits which we cannot accept. 

We have recognised that benefits such as Youth Allowance, Newstart (Job Seeker) and Austudy either do not provide enough income, are too inconsistent or are a combination of both. If you would like to enquire about your eligibility or if you have other questions, feel free to contact our service team. For further information regarding the different benefits, visit the Department of Human Services’ benefits page.

How about people with bad credit?

Those looking for motorbike loans with bad credit need not fret! Unlike some traditional lenders, We do not base our entire loan assessment on an applicant’s credit score. At Nifty, we routinely offer loans to clients with a ‘below average’ credit score. This is because we understand that it does not show the full picture of a person’s financial situation. This isn’t to say that we don’t conduct credit checks, we definitely do, but we also base the majority of the assessment on an individual’s bank statements. It is our opinion that this provides better insight into a person’s recent financial position.

So, if you’re unsure of your credit score or are worried about a low credit score, fear not! Apply with Nifty and who knows? You could be zooming down the road on a new motorcycle in no time!

Ready to apply? Have these things handy!

Now that you’re all caught up, why not get to applying? To make the application process as easy as possible, we have compiled a list of all the information you need to get started. Have a look below to see what you need.

  • Personal information (name, address etc.)
  • Contact information
  • Drivers License or I.D equivalent
  • Internet banking details
  • Employment info (if applicable)
  • MyGov details (if applicable)

Easy, right? With this information in hand, you’ll find that you can fly through the application. Not satisfied? Well, submit the application within regular business hours and we could have an answer within 60-minutes!
