Five Things To know Before Buying A Motorbikes

10th October 2021
"Here are the five major things you need to know and check before buying a motorbikes"

Buying a motorcycle is a step towards freedom. There are tons of two-wheelers options currently available in the Nepali market that arrive with a variety of displacement figures and features but here are the five major things you need to check before buying motorbikes:

Comfort:

While purchasing a motorbikes comfort is the first thing that you need to check. It is important that a rider must first try mounting himself on the bike to check its seat height. Choose a motorbike that has a ride height that will still enable you to put your feet on the ground while you're seated because you need to tip-toe and do one-foot balancing in traffic.

You need to check whether the seat cushion is thin and comfortable for a better feel of the bike. Motorbike buyers should adapt their riding style according to the footpeg position for comfort and safety purposes.

Brand:

Purchasing a two-wheeler is a one-time investment. The motorbike you purchase should last for many years. So, you must have an option for a brand that is well established and gives you the assurance of good quality and after-sales service.

Mileage:

Mileage is the distance which a vehicle covers over one litre of fuel. As fuel prices are increasing, it is very important to check the mileage of the vehicle, before making a purchase. Mileage will help you determine the best motorbike for yourself. Miles certainly can provide you with a good indication of the age and health of the motorcycle.

Bike weight:

It is very important to check the weight of the vehicle before purchasing so that you can ride comfortably. You should take a test ride of the two-wheeler to decide whether or not you can handle it. Be aware of the motorbike’s curb weight before you buy it. A time will come when you’ll need to push the bike forward or backwards from a parking lot, and security guards won't always be around to give you a hand.

Budget:

Before purchasing a two-wheeler, you should fix a budget. Fixing a budget will give you a clear view of your options. This not only refers to the bike purchase but also to its maintenance and operating expenses.

Why do people prefer scooters?

8th October 2021
"Is it a trend or is it a compulsion?"

In our daily life, we can see most of the people riding a scooter in society. We only see a few of them interested in bikes.

Do you know why it is so? Is it a trend or is it a compulsion?

The scooter of today's generation adds to your bold style, powerful looks, and superior performanceThere might also be different reasons because in today’s world we can see boys interested in scooters as well.  There are few points that might be attracting people towards scooter rather than a bike. Let’s have a look at the following points:

scooter

Easy to learn

Due to their small, efficient engines and automatic transmission, scooters are easy to learn. Moreover, bikes have manual transmission but scooters have automatic i.e. no gears which makes it easier to learn.

Comfort

If we compare bikes and scooters, scooters are lighter. Also, scooters have a smaller wheelbase than motorcycles which makes the rider easier to handle at slower speeds and easy to take turns.

As we all know, perfect makes a man perfect, so a man with good practice can ride a bike easily with a large wheelbase as well. 

Easy to maintain

A scooter has fewer moving parts as compared to the bike so this might be another point for buyers to prefer a scooter more than a bike. But remember bikes are also not so costly as well. Therefore requires less maintenance than a bike. A normal check-up of tire, brakes, and engine oil will be enough for a scooter rider.  

Also, Scooters are more fuel-efficient. Smaller and lighter vehicles usually tend to be more fuel-efficient. 

Storage capacity

Scooters have enough spaces, also large under-seat and leg spaces which makes it easier for the rider to carry loads without any headache. 

Scooter ride

In a nutshell, scooters, and bikes both are categorized under two-wheelers. In the end, it's your choice what fits you the best. Scooters are basically a good choice for city riders. When it comes to highways and off-road, the bike is more comfortable, easy, and convenient. Moreover, people have their own choices and vehicle have their own benefits as well as demerits.
