Buying a Motorcycle: First-Timer Guide

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”36795″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]One common mistake when buying a new motorcycle is choosing one simply for its design and specifications. Another common mistake is listening to recommendations of others without considering your personal needs. While your peers can give you good advice, a motorcycle is a long-term investment. The number one thing you should look at other than performance and endurance is compatibility, with you, the rider.

Seat Height

Filipinos are known to be on the shorter side and more often than not, many popular motorcycle models can be too high for the average Filipino. Your feet need to be able to touch the ground when you mount the motorcycle. This is so that you can tiptoe in traffic and balance on one foot.

Brake and clutch lever

Check if the motorcycle you want has smooth levers that are easy to operate. Widely spaced levers are also ideal in heavy traffic.

Foot peg

There are foot pegs that are positioned slightly forward (for most touring bikes), in the middle, or rearward (for most racing bikes). You need to consider which ones are best for your comfort and safety.

Handlebars

If the handlebars on your motorcycle are too wide, this may mean that you have to lean forward more when riding. This can cause a lot of back pain for riders who are not too young and athletic.

Seat cushion

Choose a motorcycle with thicker and wider paddings as these are best for long-distance travel and everyday use.

Engine temperature

One common complaint with motorcycles is the unbearable engine heat. You can’t really test this in the showroom, but many online reviews can be a reliable basis.

Bike Weight

Be aware of how heavy the motorcycle is. This would be useful for when you have to push it manually for parking and there would be no one to help.

Budget

Finally, you need to check if you could afford the motorcycle you want. This is not only about the motorcycle itself. You need to consider maintenance costs – this means the price and availability of spare parts, service fees, and fuel costs.

With all these factors taken into consideration, EMCOR can also help you find the best possible motorcycle for you. Browse your options online or drop by the nearest EMCOR branch![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
