The Motorcycle is a favorite ride for many, especially the youngsters. However, before possessing one, you should know every possible information about a Motorcycle. Start with your temperament. Are you the kind, liking to ride like a bat out of hell or like an elephant rolling majestically down the highway. That will decide if you want a sports bike or a cruiser styled bike.
Secondly, where do you stay? Does it get scorching there? It is then preferable to go for a liquid-cooled engine rather than an air-cooled one.
At this point, we would say, ‘your riding experience”, but I was without any biking experience before I went and bought a superbike. So if you have the experience, it’s great. Otherwise, what matters is your comfort level and maturity in handling the right amount of power between your legs.
Lastly, the budget. How much are you willing to spend. Whether you want a standard 150, 200 CC, or do you want to go higher. I hear good things about the new Enfield 650 CC as well.
Finally, please keep enough money to buy decent riding gear after you’ve bought your baby.
How To Choose The Motorcycle Which Is The Best?
There are no best bikes. There are only bikes that are suitable for, and that suits your budget. Are you interested in traveling, or just riding? Do you want to do track days or do Sunday cafe rides?
If it is only commuting, get a commuter. Most are easy to handle and cheap on maintenance.
If it is touring, you are looking for a bike with a pleasant suspension journey, and that can do triple digits without much hassle. I would suggest the Mahindra Mojo, the Versys 300, VStrom 300, R3.
I do not favor RE bikes because I didn’t find them good in handling or braking compared to my other bikes. The 350’s vibrations were evil. Not much top end too. The waves made the ride unbearable.
Precautions During Riding
You “MUST WEAR A HELMET.” Head injuries can happen suddenly. You have no control over. They’re not familiar, but few people cannot relate at least one story of someone who was saved or not saved by a helmet. Drivers are aggressive, and there is more drug and drink use out there than you can imagine. It’s also the law in many places.
Get one of the most ordinary and the cheapest bikes available–used is suitable. Most people aren’t looking for sturdy, coaster brake bicycles without gears, and they aren’t expensive to produce, so you should be able to get one very cheaply.
When you purchase a bike, you aren’t going to use the standards that most experienced bike riders do, which is to get a bike with a seat tall enough so that you can fully extend your leg.
Instead, get a bike that’s big enough so that you don’t feel cramped riding it, but when you do lose your balance or need to stop fast, your feet will touch the ground without getting off the seat.
