Pre-registered motorcycles and scooters are essentially new bikes, but self-registered by dealerships. Bike manufacturers measure success by the number of sales, and if a motorcycle has been registered with the DVLA it is considered sold.
Even though pre-registered bikes may have very low or zero mileage on the clock, being just several days or weeks old, they are officially classed as ‘secondhand’. So, dealers are technically the first owner on the registration document.
