Myths and Misconceptions Related to Motorcycle

We people tend to follow many misconceptions created by people rather than finding out what the reality actually is!

There are different myths and misconceptions related to two-wheels especially motorcycles. There are many urban myths and misconceptions that float around regarding motorcyclists and the bikes they ride.

It’s a good idea to understand the statistics, so you can keep yourself as safe as possible when you’re out riding. Here are a few misconceptions believed by the people, let’s find out the reality!!

Helmets Block the View:

The act of accepting protection puts you in the right mindset. A helmet is your protection! We should know those motorcycle riders who use helmets crash less frequently than those who don't.

Yes, the helmet's visor provides eye protection and cuts down wind noise so you can actually see and hear better not block it. Also, by decreasing the noise and wind pressure on the head, helmets actually reduce fatigue.  


Please remove this misconception and always wear a helmet. Wearing a helmet does not increase the risk of having an accident. Moreover, it reduces the chances of serious injury and keeps you safe if you crash or get into an accident.

Anti-Lock Brakes aren’t safe:

This is the myth that amazes me. An anti-lock braking system is a standard safety feature and makes riding safer, produces fewer crashes, and allows for shorter stopping distances. But it amazes me that people don’t believe this!


Come on, with ABS, riders can brake fully without fear of locking up their tires. ABS automatically reduces brake pressure when a lockup is about to occur and increases it again after traction is restored. So stop believing this Anti-lock brake aren’t safe.

These are safest and please start looking for bikes with ABS so that you can ride safely.

Racing Tires are faster on Road:

Please make a note. Motorcycle racing tires are way different than road tires! You should always stick to road tires for your bike when you’re on the road—or any surface other than track surfaces because road tires were made for streets and highways for a reason. Racing tires were made for the track for a reason.

Don’t mix it and make a misconception about it.

Racing tire

Remember, there’s a better chance that after you set off the racing tire on your bike, you’re going to fall off at the first intersection. Remember to choose your tires wisely!

Other drivers don’t care about two-wheeler riders:

Remember, no one wants to hit anyone. Instead of assuming that drivers ignore you even when they see you, you should help make it easier for drivers to spot you because sometimes they don't always know you are there, even when you are right in front of them.

You can be blocked or completely hidden by glare, by other things on or along the road, by the car's roof pillars, the handicap hangtag, or by other traffic. So it’s not the mistake or intention of anyone.

Moreover, two-wheeler riders should be more aware of being spotted by wearing bright color helmets and jackets to be safe.

"We have made recommendations according to your favorite bike segment."

Are you an officer, or an adventure junkie, or are you into long-distance bike riding? Whatever your interests are, we have segmented all the bikes in Nepal according to your choice. We have also made recommendations according to your favorite bike segment.


Commuters are also known as standard motorcycles. It falls in the range of 100cc to above. Ergonomics are pretty neutral as it isn’t very forward-leaning or rearward reclining. Seat height usually is in the shorter to middle range and can usually fit almost everyone comfortably. It can be easily used for daily ups and downs. It is neither too big for the beginners not too small for experienced riders.

Types of Motorcycles 2020

Recommendations: TVS Apache 160, Pulsar NS 200 and Suzuki Gixxer are good commuter motorcycles in Nepal.


When we use the word, readers generally have the image of Harley Davidson choppers in their head. Well, they are not wrong. Cruiser bikes typically has a little lower seat height, making it a good “cruising” around-town motorcycle, but with a little added luggage. If you are into a certain distant riding for the weekend, cruisers might be the ideal bike for you. It is comfortable to sit and you would feel that you are in the bike rather than being on the bike.

Types of Motorcycles 2020

Recommendations: Bajaj Avenger, Suzuki Intruder, UM Renegade makes good cruisers in Nepal.

Dual Sport

Dual sport motorcycles are basically the dirt bike with headlights. It is used to ride in almost all kind of road conditions, mostly off-road. The seat height is generally a little taller to navigate the backroads and off beaten paths you can find on the backroads. If you have a thing for off-road riding, these types of bikes are definitely a green light for you. You can also try long cruising in a dual sport bike, but it will not be as comfortable as the cruisers.

Types of Motorcycles 2020

Recommendations: Runner Hawk, Honda XR, Hartford VR is some good dual sport bikes available in Nepal.


Touring bikes are the big bulky, muscular bikes used for cross country rides or long distant rides. They offer a large amount of storage with easy ergonomics that allow you to ride for hours at a time. They will have the largest fairings to block the wind and weather while riding.

Recommendations: CF Moto 650 GT, BMW GS 310 can be a good touring bike in Nepal.


When we mentioned scooter in the list of types of bikes, you might find it odd. But the catch is, it is relatively same in terms of safety, style and commuting. Okay, let’s give them the title, “siblings of motorbike.” Scooters make a very good urban commuting. It performs well in the city road with a lot of traffic. They are lightweight and low to the ground which makes them easy to navigate through city streets without having to muscle them around all day.

Recommendations: Suzuki Burgman, TVS NTorq, Honda Aviator are some of the good scooters in Nepal.
