THE AMERICAN MOTORCYCLIST ASSOCIATION AND BLACK BOOK are now marketing Android and iPhone apps for pricing motorcycles and other powersports vehicles.

The AMA Motorcycle Value Guide powered by Black Book gives smartphone owners constant access to the Black Book Motorcycle and Powersports Value Guide. The app is available now in the iTunes App Store and Android Marketplace for $1.99.

The AMA is promoting the app to consumers through a press release. “If you want to avoid the anxiety of paying too much for a used motorcycle, or getting too little for yours, arm yourself with the objective data available in the AMA Motorcycle Value Guide powered by Black Book,” stated Grant Parsons, the AMA’s communications and marketing director. “The prices in the app are based on real sales, and that offers both buyers and sellers confidence and peace of mind.”

The guide includes comprehensive value information on virtually all motorcycles, ATVs, dirtbikes, scooters, personal watercraft, jet boats and snowmobiles produced since 1981. The guide, updated monthly, includes the current retail values, a condition-based trade-in value, as well as the original MSRP.

“Motorcyclists deserve to have the most up-to-date market-driven motorcycle value information on the planet at their fingertips when they buy or sell used bikes,” said Black Book's Ricky Beggs. “We’re excited to work with the AMA to offer this new service to AMA members and others.”

To download the AMA Motorcycle Value Guide powered by Black Book, search for it in the iTunes App Store or the Android Marketplace.
