    Cheaper Motorcycle Parking Rates in Singapore

    How to Get Better Motorbike Parking Rates in Singapore (2022)
     
    Parking fees are an extra daily expense that motorists can’t avoid. Unless you decide to use public transport to work of course.
    And while car drivers may consider $10 for all-day parking reasonably cheap, surely motorcyclists shouldn’t have to pay that much. So, we’ve put together a list of parking spots to consider, if you own a motorcycle and want to get better parking rates in Singapore.
    HDB Season Parking for Motorcycles
     
    If there is a HDB parking lot nearby, that’s always a good choice to park your motorcycle at a cheaper rate. Season parking at HDB areas in Singapore costs between $15 per month for unsheltered carparks or $17 per month for sheltered spots.
    You could even top up to concessionary season parking (CPST) for $20 per month, allowing you to park at white motorcycle lots at all HDB carparks as well as most Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) carparks.
    You can apply for HDB season parking to get better motorbike parking rates via HDB’s e-Service or via the mobile app [email protected]
    Coupon Parking for Motorcycles
    Another good option for parking your motorcycle is the 65-cent HDB or URA parking, payable by coupon. You can buy the parking coupons at authorised sale outlets. This includes Cheers, 7-Eleven, most petrol kiosks and other appointed sale outlets that display the “authorised coupon” signboard at their premises.
    With a coupon, you can leave your motorcycle parked at a URA/HDB parking lot from 7 am to 10.30pm or overnight from 10.30pm to 7am the following day. This is definitely the most cost-effective option for motorcycle riders that wish to park at open-air carparks in Singapore, such as the downtown area.
    Free Motorcycle Parking in Singapore
    Do you know there are a few parking areas around the island where you can park your motorcycle for free? These carparks do not have any parking fee imposed from Monday to Sunday including public holidays.
    Here is where you can find free motorcycle parking spots in Singapore:
    E Hub Downtown East Esplanade IKEA Alexandra IKEA Tampines Jelita Cold Storage Junction Nine Kallang Wave Mall Kinex Labrador Park Liang Court Marina Square Millenia Walk Singapore Expo Suntec City The Chevrons Jurong Central Park (McDonalds)  
    Ultimate Bonus: Free Parking for Motorcycles at Orchard
    Many people in Singapore will notice that there aren’t any parking lots for motorbikes at Orchard Road? However, if you’re willing to walk 10 to 15 minutes to your destination, you can easily find free parking for motorcycles here.
    These are a couple options of where to go:
    If you’re headed to Orchard Central, where Somerset 313, Peranakan Place and the Heeren are located, you can park for free at Concorde Hotel. If you’re headed to ION Orchard, park at the Anguilla Park open air URA car park beside Wheelock Place. There are also several URA lots behind Lido and Pacific Plaza on Claymore Hill and Claymore Road, close to the Tanglin Club and the American Club. These parking lots usually see less traffic than Anguilla Park and are worth a try if you’re tired of waiting for a spot.
    Park with Peace of Mind
    While in the past, it was easy to find free parking for motorcycles in most shopping centers, it seems this is no longer the case now. Motorcycle parking rates at malls in Singapore can go as high as $6 for 2 hours.
    So, if parking in a mall gets expensive, you can always seek out URA/HDB open air carparks using the parking.sg app.
    Do you know of other areas that offer free parking for motorcycles? Let us know in the comments section below.
    Also, if you love the good parking deals recommended in this article, then you will love the competitive motorcycle insurance prices from Direct Asia. Consider speaking to one of our qualified insurance professionals in Singapore today.

    What 2B motorcycle should you get? 
    Besides the obvious factor of price point, the type of motorcycle you choose also shows your personal style. Do you want something sporty and stylish? Do you see yourself on a sturdy scooter that exudes class and confidence? Or do you prefer something retro and cute to zip around with?
    Our 2B motorcycle choices can be pretty limited in Singapore due to the different class of bike licenses. But there are a few machines under 200cc – for various styles – that are worth mentioning. 
    Before we jump into the list of top 5 2B motorcycles available in Singapore for riders of all types, here’s a handy checklist in choosing your Class 2B motorbike:
    It should be fairly common The 2B motorcycle you choose to buy should be a common model in the market – why? This is because most motorcycle dealers do not keep parts on hand for entry-level machines that are not very popular in the market. Yes, you may stand out of the crowd with something different but are you willing to wait 3 months for essential parts to be shipped from Japan? 
    It should be easy to maintain  Most 2B motorcycles are easy to maintain and should not cost much to repair. The servicing of your two-wheeler is highly dependent on how often you ride it, how well you maintain it, and the price of the parts required. Typical motorcycle servicing requires a change of engine oil, cleaning of filters, threading/changing of tires and the changing of brake pads. So, it’s wise to go for a motorcycle that does not have too many moving parts that could easily give way over time.
    It should be fuel efficient  An average 2B motorbike runs at 20–25 kilometers per litre. On the other hand, a 4-stroke 2B motorbike can run at about 35-40 km/l of petrol. But bear in mind that your fuel efficiency is also affected by engine size, bike condition, riding habits, and total weight. 
    Other costs you should consider when buying a new motorcycle are:
    Certificate Of Entitlement (COE) Road tax and Parking ERP charges Riding gear Motorcycle insurance Based on the criteria above, here are a few top 2B motorcycles available in Singapore for every type of rider: 
    The Retro Rider

     
    The Vespa is the epitome of retro urban living and is perfect for trips to your favourite cafe or for a quick ride around town. You can take your pick from the S125 for simplicity, LX150 for a more modern look or PX150 for pure retro styling. The latest Vespa models give you modern reliability combined with good gas mileage – so, basically, they offer a cheap, fun ride. There is an older model you can still find used in Singapore that’ll get you to the full 200CC’s, but honestly on these bikes the ride’s going to be fun whatever the power.  There’s also a great club to join if you really want to nerd out on vintage vibes.
    The Stylish Sports Rider 

    Image Credit: Unique Motor Sports
    A sports bike with risqué Italian styling makes the CB150R an instant attraction for many new motorcycle riders. This motorbike also comes with some cool features, such as LED head and taillights, LED winkers, LCD instrument panel and a big-bike muffler.
    If you want a good-looking sporty motorbike that is relatively affordable, the CB190R is the one for you. But, while many are sold on the CB150R’s looks alone, it’s worth pointing out that the racer’s riding posture tends to put strain on the wrist and lower back – not something you’d want to discover during an ambitious road trip – say to Malaysia.
    The Cool Cruiser Rider

     
    If you’re a fan of Sons of Anarchy, then you’ll love the Honda TA200. If you squint a little, you might just think it’s a Harley. It’s great for riding pillion, has loads of support and is known for its reliability amongst motorcycle riders. There are tons of secondhand options in the market so it’s likely you can get one according to your budget.
     
    The Steady Scooter Rider

    Who says you can’t be cool riding a scooter in Singapore? If you’re looking for a sturdier and more functional ride, the Yamaha X-MAX300 is the ride for you. Plus, you’ll probably appreciate the extra storage space under the seat to store your wet gear given Singapore’s tropical rainy weather. Most scooters also come with an automatic transmission, which means there’s no need to go through the hassle of changing gears. Do you know the Yamaha X-MAX300 has also received the Red Dot Award for Product Design in 2018 – for the 3rd time?
    The Adventurous Bike Rider

     
    This wasp-like machine is for the thrill-seekers. Because it’s rather light-weight, veteran riders may complain that it’s jumpy in low gears, but that’s also why it’s perfect for new riders that want more thrust-power. However, although the Duke 200 is made in India with an Austrian pedigree, it isn’t the cheapest entry-level motorcycle to maintain, and the engine can get quite hot when stuck in heavy traffic. Its higher power-to-weight ratio means you can count on this motorbike to deliver pizza steaming hot, but not necessarily in one piece! But if style and speed trumps comfort for you, then this is a good option.
    Insure Your Motorcycle
    Once you’ve decided what type of 2B motorcycle you prefer, you’ll need to think about motorcycle insurance. You can get a quick quote online so you know how much you’ll need to ride your motorcycle on Singapore roads once you’ve purchased your vehicle. 
    At DirectAsia, you can freely customize your motorcycle insurance policy to your needs. Choose from a suite of Comprehensive motorcycle insurance, Third Party Fire & Theft (TPFT) or Third Party Only (TPO) policies, along with optional benefits to fit your lifestyle needs.

    4 Tips to Avoid a Parking Fine in Singapore
     
    If you’ve ever received a parking fine under your vehicle’s wipers for illegal parking violations, chances are your entire day was ruined. No doubt, every driver in Singapore dreads receiving demerit points or a Notice of Traffic Offense (NTO) from the Traffic Police.
    Depending on the offense, you can receive a fine between $70 to $240. On top of that, since March 2017, an additional $20 is issued to drivers that do not pay their first NTO for illegal parking in Singapore within 28 days from the issue date. You can check for outstanding NTOs linked to your Singpass online.
    You should also note that your car insurance is at risk if your car gets damaged when illegally parked on Singapore roads. It wouldn’t matter if you have Comprehensive Insurance or a Certificate of Merit.
    Here are 4 tips to help you avoid a parking fine/penalty in Singapore.
    Avoid Parking Illegally In Singapore Not paying for parking is one thing, but parking illegally in Singapore is a serious traffic violation.
    Illegal parking violations are divided into 2 types; non-demerit point offences and offences with demerit points.
    Offences with demerit points are accumulated and typically more expensive. If you get 24 demerit points within a 12-month period in Singapore, you will be charged as a repeat offender. Repeat offenders get stiffer fines. Furthermore, if you accumulate more than 24 points, you instantly face license suspension.
    Use The Park&Go @SG App Paying for parking at a proper parking area or designated parking box is of course the best way to avoid a parking fine in Singapore, and the handy Park&Go @SG app makes it easy for you to find a spot. It lets you know if there is an available parking lot as soon as you arrive at your destination.
    If you take the risk of illegally parking and get caught for an illegal parking offence, the parking fine will probably end up costing more than what you’d pay in parking fees.
    Besides that, the Park&Go @SG app also offers other services like real-time traffic condition reports and the option to pay electronically via the app, making it easy to park at public car parks (without gantries).
    Use Your In-Car Camera If you’ve been issued a summon for parking in a HDB loading/unloading space – or any other no parking zones – but you immediately drove off after dropping off your items or a passenger, you can use the footage from your in-car camera to bolster your appeal.
     Be Aware of Parking Enforcement Cameras (Image Source: CNA)
    If you see lampposts or signposts with orange vertical strips, do not park your vehicle or stop to wait there. These are CCTV monitoring zones in Singapore, used to catch drivers that park illegally. Watch out for the signs that indicate parking enforcement cameras too.
    (Image Source: CNA)
    No Waiting signs and CCTV cameras have been installed at passenger pick-up points at some MRT stations too. So, keep a look out to be sure you are not committing an illegal parking offence when driving in Singapore.
    BONUS: Appeal Directly to The Parking Warden
    The waiving or reduction of parking fines in Singapore is discretionary. If you had to park illegally due to a medical emergency, your parking fine may be waived. And if you’re a first-time offender, your appeal will likely be given consideration.

    Presenting Cardo’s New Flagship The Packtalk EDGE 2022. Here’s Why There Is No Second Best!

                  When we were contacted by Chong Aik (the official Cardo distributor here in Singapore) in the early part of the year to do a launch review for their new Freecom X and Spirit line of Bluetooth communicators, we were very excited because while the tech was improving, offers from the big boys Cardo and Sena were taking awhile to be launched. 
    Check out our review of the Freecom X and Spirit range here:

                  Something missing from that launch however, was an update to Cardo’s flagship – the Packtalk BOLD. Having used the Packtalk BOLD for the last 3 years, this impressive piece of kit from the Israel-based company could use with some improvements to keep up with today’s technology. Fortunately for us, the disappoint did not last long as just a couple of months after the launch of Cardo’s budget and mid-tier range, they announced the replacement for the Packtalk BOLD, aptly named the Packtalk EDGE.

    WHY CARDO?
    Having bikers choose the best comms system on the market is like asking Japanese fanboys if they prefer Honda or Yamaha motorcycles. You will get a different answer depending on who you ask. However, we here at SingaporeBikes.com prefer to take a more technical approach, study the market, and do our in-depth and independent review and analysis. Let us hit you with some facts.

                  Although Sena has numerous more integrations with Helmet manufacturers such as Shoei and HJC, majority of bikers that we know, YouTubers, Moto-vloggers, are using Cardo.
                  Do a quick search on YouTube for Cardo VS Sena and make your own deduction, we see an overwhelming majority promoting Cardo after testing it out in the field.
     
                  A recent poll done on “What Bluetooth Comms should I get?” in local Facebook Group 2Wheelers.SG, again an over-whelming majority recommended Cardo.
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/2wheelers.sg/posts/2791050347873113/
     
                  The age old saying of buy the brand that most of your riding buddies are using – Over 30% of riders polled (141 riders) are using the Cardo Packtalk BOLD series (note this was before the launch of the Packtalk EDGE):
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/2wheelers.sg/posts/2505969073047910/  

     
    THE NEW 2022 CARDO PACKTALK EDGE
                  Touting the latest technology, ease of use, and improved capabilities all around – Cardo launched the Packtalk EDGE via their YouTube channel with a launch video. If you have a couple of minutes, it’s well worth watching – Or if you prefer reading rather than watching, scroll down below as we summaries the highlights for you:
     
     
    New and improved slimmer design Air-mount for easy slip on used USB-C type charging 13 hours of usage before requiring a charge Latest Bluetooth 5.2 technology Cardo Mesh 2.0 for better hand-on/off Over-The-Air (OTA) firmware updates
     
                  As you can see from the list above – the Cardo Packtalk EDGE took everything that was great about the Packtalk BOLD and made it even better. Things that were slightly lacking like the USB-C cable and OTA updates were added into the Packtalk EDGE greatly improving its ease of use. Imagine having just 1 cable for your phone, powerbank, and Cardo comms unit (provided you use an Android) and also not having to plug your comms unit into your PC everytime you want to do a firmware update!
                  Having upgraded from the BOLD to the EDGE after 3 years, this is such a vast improvement! One point to note is that Cardo does not claim any increase in range over the previous flagship, but states that the EDGE is able to reach the same range WITHOUT the pop-up antenna that you get on the Packtalk BOLD.
    UNBOXING THE 2022 CARDO PACKTALK EDGE

                  The Packtalk EDGE comes with everything you could expect from a Bluetooth communicator system. All EDGE units come with 40mm JBL speakers that fits nicely within the cut-outs of most helmet brands, and it also comes with 2 sets of microphones – one wired and one boom mic depending on whether you are using an open-face or full-face helmet. The instruction manuals, first use guide and stickers are Cardo’s usual high standards and it also includes a variety of tape, Velcro, and even alcohol wipes to make sure that you install is as neat and tidy as they come!
                  As with all Cardo units, if you have multiple helmets (who doesn’t am I right?) – You will be able to purchase a Packtalk EDGE 2nd Helmet Kit where it comes with just the cradle, mics, and speakers so that you can easily move your Packtalk EDGE easily from one helmet to another.

     
    LIVING WITH THE CARDO PACKTALK EDGE – DAILY USABILITY
                  Before we get on to that, if you don’t have a comms system currently, I highly recommend that you get one. I’ve been telling my riding kakis that one of the greatest improvements in my quality of life as a biker is first testing out comms system more than 5 years ago. The ability to chat to your friends during group rides, listen to music, answer phone calls, scroll through Spotify, all without using my hands as the Cardo has EXCELLENT voice commands – has completely changed the enjoyment of riding a motorcycle.

     
                  In full transparency, we actually received the test unit from Chong Aik some time in March 2022. Sure it would have been great to be first to market with a review of the Packtalk EDGE but we wanted to make sure that we tested the unit to its limits, drained the battery multiple times, used it in all weather, and also head North on the NSH to test the range limits of the new unit.
                  Here, we’ll summarise some things we’ve found and hopefully this will help you make the decision when you are looking to purchase you next comms system.
    USB-C – This is a god-send. If you’re an Android user like me, having ONE cable to everything is amazing. The older Packtalk BOLD was utilising the older micro-USB standard and when going touring this can be a bit troublesome as we had to pack multiple cables.
    Air-Mount – Now this was a controversial one. Before we received the units from Chong Aik and just looking at launch videos available online, I was quick to dismiss the air-mount as nothing more than a marketing gimmick and my mind was worried on how sturdy the “Air-Mount” would be. How wrong was I. Testing the unit in real life, the air-mount after it was attached was even STURDIER than the clip in system of the older Packtalk BOLD units! It took more effort to remove once the EDGE was placed into the cradle. But what’s even better is the look on your friend’s face during the start of a ride when he is struggling to clip in his Packtalk BOLD and you just “magically” throw your EDGE towards the cradle and it find its own way home. AMAZING piece of kit from Cardo!

    Range & Battery Life – In this aspect, they are comparable with the older units and Cardo makes no claim otherwise. Realistically, there is only so much transmit power you can put into a unit the size of a Bluetooth communicator and to be fair, the Packtalk EDGE is even slimmer than the Packtalk BOLD but manages to pack the same amount of range and battery life. Fast-charging is now available on the EDGE and we manage to charge the unit from completely empty to full in approximately 2 hours using the supplied cable. YMMV depending on the wattage of your adapter.
    OTA software updates – While firmware updates are not all that frequent, they do happen. For previous units you had to plug the device into your PC, download the Cardo software and go through the update there. Sena had a slightly better process but still not tall that elegant. While you could ‘technically’ update the firmware over the air, you had to connect the unit to WiFi, and do the update through your phone using the same WiFi network. With the new Packtalk EGDE (and in-fact the Spirit and Freecom X line as well) – All you have to do is open the app and everything is taken care of. No fussing with connecting to WiFi or messy cables.
    SO IS THE CARDO PACKTALK EDGE STILL THE KING OF BLUETOOTH COMMUNICATORS?
                  Well, the short and simple answer is yes. If you’re looking for something other than entry-level unbranded units from China that retail around the S$60 price range, there really is no other competition. Sena will have a bit of catching up to do now that Cardo has launched the Packtalk EDGE and it will be interesting to see what Sena launches to even come close to the Packtalk EDGE.

     
                  Do your research, watch YouTube reviews, and scour the web for reviews on the Packtalk EDGE such as this and make your own decision. The Packtalk EDGE makes that decision an easy one as honestly nothing else comes close.
                  Chong Aik is having a launch promotion now on the Packtalk EDGE and the DUO kit (2 units of Packtalk EDGE inside) is going for just S$882! This means that each unit is just S$441. To be honest that is an amazing price as you have competitor units doing much less and selling for more more!
    https://www.chongaik.com.sg/home/2648-cardo-intercom-system-packtalk-edge-duo-sound-by-jbl.html

     
                  The original RRP of the DUO pack for the Packtalk EDGE is $980 so the launch promo is about 10% off the RRP. All Cardo products purchased through Chong Aik comes with LOCAL SINGAPORE WARRANTY so you never have to worry when something goes wrong.
