The biggest and the most informative bikes auction is BDS Group auctions. Advantages of BDS auctions comparing to other bikes auctions in Japan:
- The number of auction units;
- The number of photos;
- Video of engine working;
- Auction sheet can be viewed in English;
Above is the sample of BDS auction sheet.
Actual auction bidding for BDS auction bikes is done through the internet system called JUPITER.
The second largest auction group for bikes is JBA- JAPAN BIKE AUCTIONS. The JBA motorcycle auction is included in the ASNET auction system, so the rating system is adopted by the automobile, where there are not only whole ratings, but also fractional ones, for example 4.5. If you are familiar with the rating system at auto auctions, then it will be easy for you to accept the motorcycle rating system.
This auction is not rich in photos. There are always five of them: left, right, top, back, front. And also the auction sheet.
Next bike auction group is ARAI BIKE. Bidding takes place on Tuesdays at ARAI Bayside and ARAI Fukuoka. A small number of motorcycles are put up for auction, up to about 1000 units. These are mainly scooters. In terms of price category, this motorcycle auction is the cheapest of all in Japan. Before a motorcycle is put up for sale, it is inspected by auction experts, and the results of the inspection are entered on the auction sheet.

AUCNET - I-MOTO. Same as AUCNET car auction, I-Moto does not have its own site and is exclusively an online auction. Motorcycles put up for auction are not brought to a single parking lot, but can be located anywhere in Japan. The expert goes directly to the owner of the motorcycle, takes a photo and a technical opinion according to strict regulations.
Why is this auction interesting? - it allows you to have a large selection of motorcycles that are rarely listed at other auctions. There are also many tuning bikes on display.
Above sample of auction sheet in I-Moto. Interesting that owner can write the YouTube link in auction sheet. Usually 10-12 photos of bike are available.
