I know the feeling. Everytime I look on US and European sites for bike prices, I feel cheated. Sadly that is our reality and we have no choice but to pay the price or leave the country. I believe Malaysia/India have similar prices for large capacity bikes.

Then there is the licensing system .... but that is another debate for another day.

 

The grass is not always greener on the other side.

 

Take a look at this: http://www.southcoastregister.com.au/story/1556737/bike-riders-fear-green-slips-will-cost-2000/

 

Just to summarize. In AU, particularly NSW state (Sydney area), they have the CTP (Compulsory Third Party) a.k.a 3rd party insurance in our land. They called it Greenslips. It may cost AU$2000 per year for bike riders!!!!

 

So i found that Kawa Ninja 300 there costs AU$8000 OTR (be4 insurance) ~ SGD9000. That's almost half than what they sell here... But paying that kind of insurance rate per year?? You do the math.

the rationale is twin bikes will give you better fuel consumption / lower maintenance / torque is easily accessible.

 

True, but thres pros and cons. So it all comes to the rider to decide.

Bike Production told me they bringing in the CB400X soon. Price is quite competitive. You guys may want to check directly with them. Imported model though. Boon Siew not bringing in as of now.

 

However those with cl2 may consider the 2013 CBR600RR. Very good price. Black colour selling less than 20k before insurance. Quite cheap for a mid range performance bike.

i dun like how they used CBR400RR twice in the post. i cant accuse them of doing so deliberately, but i wonder if anyone would buy it genuinely thinking it is a "brand new CBR400RR".

It's true: it's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow. Admittedly, though... It is MOST fun to ride a fast bike fast!

hmm.... very fishy considering today's sportsbike prices.... assuming BS is genuinely selling it at that price, then Honda themselves may be up to something... like a radical revamp to be revealed in a few months' time.

I think you are thinking too much, lol. My friend bought the CBR600RR from Bike Prod already. The catch is, can only pay 3k down and loan 5 yrs. But even if you take the interest into consideration, the bike will dep around 2.1k a yr. Thats is quite good for a cl2 bike. Of course there is always a early settlement penalty to note. But nowadays most shops have it as well.

Say what?

 

What are LTA's reason about those two bike not suitable for singapore roads?

 

The top dog in LTA deems aftermarket steel braided lines are unsafe because its not stock, what other reason could it be other then that the LTA are ran by morons.

Depends on how much they pay you there. If alot then it should not be an issue.

They are not morons. In fact they are very smart and sharp, know where to make money fast and easy.

looks like i have to wait for cbr6. who else have no faith in a parallel twin vs inline 4?

 

Just wondering, why you do not have faith in parallel twin? To me all engine configuration have their own advantages. Maybe a 400cc lack the top end power/speed as compared to the bigger cc counter, hence the engineer decided why not concentrate on the low and mid range instead. Hence parallel twin? But of course I can't deny part of the reason maybe to cut production cost.

Aftermarket stuff did not pass thru any of their test or verification to prove that it is reliable, if the brake hose gave way and rider met with an accident, who do you think the public will point the finger towards?

Yes, I agree with you that they are not morons. But I felt it not because of making money fast and easy but because of laziness. Implementing new things is not a simple affair of one guy proposing a changes and next day it take effect. They will or might need to do intensive study and with conclusive result before implementing the changes. If the top never pressure downwards, everyone there will be happily doing their routine work and get their monthly pay. Why need to make things hard for themselves?

The only intensive study they will ever make is on how to rob more of your money, end of story. I don't see why anyone should sympathise with them. You could just conform to international standards and don't act like you understand about safety standards. For example, PSB vs Dot/Snell.

Yes true. It conform to my point of them not willing to step forward to embrance the change until someone from the top decide something need to be done. If not, everything will remain standstill or maybe moving at a snail pace.
